"After all, WebTV demonstrated a set-top
prototype back in 1997 with an RF tuner that uses cable or
broadcasttelevision signals to download digital data."
forget that the FCC has mandated that *all* television
has to be switched over to digital within the next
few years (I forget the year, I think it's 2002 or
2005 or thereabouts).
that analyst is an idiot, he been saying that for
years about AOL DELL YHOO...he is a loser. If you
would've listen to him you would not have the money you
have from AOL today.By the by he is the one who
recommend IOM CPQ DIC and other losers last year.And David
F. " the brain" is another idiot who is jealous of
every one who is succesful.
Don't worry about AOL-
it is a leader of internet for many years to come!

Good luck to all.
If AOL does not invest any money in the cable
systems, don't expect them to have a free ride when T puts
their internet/cable system online...bad luck for
AOL...they better start investing or lobbying their
senators...big trouble ahead if you own the train, but have no
fast tracks to run it on...oh yeah...perhaps T with a
p/e of 27 and real earnings may be the steal of the
year...get on board before the train leaves the station on
the fastest tracks in the internet market!!!
did anybody watch cnbc friday? They had a analyst
on that said AOL would definitetly collapse .Where

Just wrote a short message to local senator here
(Michiagn) asking for his support on the issue of equal
access for all ISPs (including AOL) on local cable
