Woah! I could use some of that money for a vacation to Bora Bora. Too bad they suck at everything. Maybe they could invest it in some new starts ups or something. Never know where the next great idea might be!

This is mental - unbelievable that they are still making money off of dial up.

Dang!!! That is crazy!!! That is worse than using a phone that is not touch screen lol

There's nothing wrong with using a phone that isn't touch-screen, that's a personal preference.

I never said there was something wrong with it. I am simply speaking about the age of the interface. Obviously dial up may also be a preference because of low price. I was simply relating the aging interfaces together. Although I can see why you would consider it an attack by my use of the term "worse". I mean worse as in outdated but some people prefer the old over the new.

Not really touch screen phone didn't become the norm till about 2008-2009 dial-up has been phased out since about 2003-2004

I don't regret having to launch a program for internet accesses. Being forced to use the aol browser was the worst injustice of them all.

It's unfortunate that some folk don't have at least DSL available to them.

Ahhhh, AOL. The first social networking site. I remember the long nights on Aol chat, lol.

i remember i use to go to the lesbian chatrooms and they love to trade pics. now whats funny is i obviously had a guy name for my account but i guess because this was a lesbian chatroom they just paid it no mind. i would have them send me their pics and i would just get off. they would be like "ok now send me yours." funny thing is i was like 11 at the most maybe 10. those were the days of fooling people much older than myself. i'm so proud of me.
