<<Can Anybody Tell me of the CBS
Steve Case wants CBS. Rumor's been around for awhile
now. Case envisions AOL as a full blown multimedia
force taking the fringe market of "webTV" to the next
step. AOL-TV may very well be a reality. Personally, I
think AOL can dip its toes into this field much more
cheaply and smoothly with a CNET buyout. They already
have a partnership, so are familiar with each other.
Both share the internet-first, let's conquer the
world, mindframe. I think CNET's parts could fit into
AOL seamlessly, and AOL would have direct access into
television with CNET being in thousands of national and
international TV markets. Not the market of the Tiffany
Network, but then again, nowhere near the cost and hassle
of merger two unlike corporations.
Keep 'em honest kid! Not much time to browse the
but from what I see, looks like we may
be entering our pre-earnings runup. Lets hope so,
and lets further hope the boys
(and girls) deliver
what the street is looking for.
The price of one share of AOL
purchased 5 years ago, split adjusted, would have cost you
So, 40 shares at .99 would have cost you 39.60 and
would be worth approx. $6280 today.

Why would you feel so threatened to stereotype me
as a "female" executive secretary?
Captains of industry (just like your boss) have big egos
and make bad decisions all the time for the wrong
It's O.K. to disagree with someone's opinion without
getting personally abusive.
