Don't forget that AOL is probably still the biggest Dial-Up ISP in the business. There are still plenty of people who don't have access to broadband based on a lack of infrastructure in certain rural and semi-rural areas.

What I do find astounding is the number of broadband users that still pay AOL for the "privilege" of using their crummy software, my in-laws included. Unfortunately, so many people were introduced to the Internet by AOL, so they just can't grasp the concept of multiple applications for different Internet-based services.

I wonder if anyone has ever considered building an AOL-like application that includes Web browsing, email, chat and IM all in one package, that includes a master database of mail servers and other ISP settings, so as to appeal to those that want that all-in-one experience, with instant, or nearly instant configuration.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
