AOL reinvents itself. Just off the top of my head, about the closest
analogy I could come up with was when Intel decided to exit memory chips
and start manufacturing microprocessors.

We are all familiar with chiding AOL members with derision. Dismissing
them as "newbies".

Now, all of a sudden, a former soap salesman, who carpet bombed the
world with sign up floppies and CD's, has bought Netscape (the first
true Internet company), ICQ, WinAmp, ShoutCast, and Spinner?!

Gurus, what does this all mean?
