A settlement charge deducted from expenses? They just happen to earn money in the "other income" category this quarter while losing money there last quarter. All part of the norm for this CO. Alwyas hit the number right on the nose, worry about next quarter later. This company is more concerned with it's near term stock price that they are going to hurt it in the long run.
They buy compuserve so they have an excuse to delay earning big $$. Would not be suprised if they buy part of netscape just to have another excuse.
