It amazes me how much they overmarket the product. Every computer magazine has like 100 of them in between the pages, any computer store you step into throws 1000 at you, even department stores have these massive boxes filled with millions od those damn CD's. And to make things worse, you open your mailbox, and out falls a few of those CD's in tin boxes.
I'd guess people pay like $4 for the actual service, and $20 on marketing garbage Cd's.

It all depends. If you're a computer dummy, then you like aol. However, if you're computer literate, you'll go with something else.

I ahve to agree with this, AOL is a "shining thing" that computer dummies think is the greatest thing in the world, well the rest of us strap down with our DSL or cable and use old world of telnet, ICQ, and minsweeper! :lol:
