    Here's something for you guys to collective groan and laugh about at the same time. Apparently Verizon and AOL have teamed up. What sort of ground-breaking new feature/service could these two bring to the table with their collaboration? Why, it's an AOL.com browser bookmark of course! Here's a quote with a full description, just in case you are like me and had to do a double-take because you over-complicated it in your mind,

    Well... at least this isn't something as intrusive as an app. It's a great deal easier to get rid of a bookmark, making this a relatively minor bit of bloat.

    What is there to say about this? Does anyone still use AOL?

    Sure, the portal is first, next is the bloatware app. Just wait and see, this is Verizon we're talking about here.

    I knew they had a website, that was all I thought it was anymore though, just a news aggregate service pulling news from elsewhere. I don't even use AIM anymore. haven't for years

    Waste of time, and resources.

    VZW could use the the money spent on this garbage to ensure that their networks don't get choked by overuse (like what happens when there's a ball game or festival and a tower gets saturated) or expanding their markets. But instead they do this. When will they learn that they make money by providing network access. That's all they are... a network provider, and to do anything else is DUMB. If you have a good network people will freely hand you money. You'll have to turn them away! It's that simple. Nobody wants this crap bookmark. Nobody wants your garbage apps. NOBODY. So just stop it.

    UGH! What do they smoke in their boardroom that makes this seem like this is something people want?

    (Yes, I realize I'm just pointlessly shouting into thin air.)
