It will come back soon! So put some in ATHM and go back into AOL if it turns around. Stay with whats hot, it's the best advice you can get right now.Lets face it AOL is losing market share.

Only reason baby bells haven't offered cable so far is because they didn't have to.

BellSouth already has a significant cable business. MediaOne was, until a year ago, a subsidiary of USWest. Its ticker is UMG for USWest Media Group. They split it off because it didn't fit in with whatever it is they call their "business plan". So there's one (admittedly worse case -- US Worst case) example of the wisdom of those hungry RBOCs.

I would say that was good price, but who's to say in this nutty market.

You're joking right? If anyone believes the sky is falling simply because T sealed the bid your dreaming. They need to execute, they need to fire people, they need to come up with a strategy that works. Last count, T and ATHM combined subscriber base doesn't even come close to AOL. We're not talking a couple hundred - we're talking millions.

What amazes me is that everyone thinks broadband is going to be adopted so eagerly. Folks, it's going to take a lot of time and effort. More importantly, it's going to take a monumental marketing effort to get the average american household to belly up and pay for broadband. We see the world through rose colored glasses, salivating that we get higher KB/sec downloads and brag that we downloaded the latest Star Wars trailer in under 5 minuets.

Meanwhile, the mass market consumer simply logs in, reads some e-mail and surfers the Web for awhile. It's AOL bread and butter - and their execution has been flawless in capturing the market. All signs point to further gains.

I have no feelings with AOL one way or another
I thought that you should never fall in love with a stock ...

I don't know what the future holds
but as the net stud that has the biggest capitalization, I have no chice but to own it ...

AOL has something up its sleeve. Most likely Steve Case has lined up a deal with AT&T, in exchange for dropping any interest in Media One.

A Broadband deal with T is in the cards.

This combined with TA indicates a buying opportunity for AOL. Load up, and relax.

Man when will this rotten luck of mine end? I'm so ticked off right now I'm thinking of selling all my AOL and buying T and ATHM just to see THEM go bust!

<<Newbridge said it had "exceptionally strong customer demand"
for its products in the quarter, but could not convert the
demand in orders to strength in sales because it lacked control
over manufacturing and supply schedules.>>

Does that mean NN does not know what the heck they are doing ...
exceptionally strong customer demand and nothing to show for it, I don't want to stick around to find out when the demand softens ...
