I have no confirmation of any purchase though it
wouldn't surprise me if any one of many are interested in
VTPI. This Company is building momentum in alliances,
licensing, partnerships and avenues of marketing and name
recognition. They have THE best tele/video conferencing
product on the market, bundled into a very respectable
PC. And again, the software codec product opens the
otherside of the market for them immensly, the consumer.
Following is an email response from the company.

waiting for a couple of months for some news from
TeleCon East Trade Show, or any news. The last news we've
seen was on the software codec (Mar 16), anything more
on that? It's been more than 3 months since the

Wow, AOL really is the gorilla. Try to catch
up with these guys, just
try. Here's what you'd
have to do:

Facilitate the exchange of 56 million daily
Hand out 121 million stock quotes.
Exchange 432 million instant messages.

members for an average of 55 minutes usage each day.
At the peak, serve 1.1 million users, twice CNN and
Serve 50 million unique users on
your web sites.
Find 25 million users for client
based chat service (ICQ), and
convince them to log
on for hours each week.
Purchase large stakes in
online giants like The Motley Fool,
Excite, NetGrocer, and Online Chef.
Lock down huge
marketing contracts with amazon.com, Barnes & Noble,
First USA, CBS, Tel-Save, E*Trade, Ameritrade, Schwab,
Why is AOL valued
at $135 billion? Read that list one more time, that
is why AOL is valued so highly.
The market is
waking up to the fact that the AOL model is the
ultimate all-encompassing direct marketing medium. They
exclusive access to almost 4% of 17 million
member's days. Add web
property and ICQ usage to that,
factor in the time a person has to
sleep, and AOL
could be locking up 10% of up to 50 million American's
time each day. How much would you pay for that power?
You heard it here first, AOL will be the first
Full on agree, but who am I to agrue against the
waves of people that insist splits do equal more value.
It has happen in the past that stocks actually go
DOWN after splits. Honest!!! Not saing that will
happen to AOL. Very much doubt it, in fact.
All AOL has to do is get approval from the share
holders to increase the number of shares available. And
the way everybody loves splits, do you really think
there is a chance that such a vote would not
CNET (next to positive it was CNET), today, announced
