AOL Steals A Page From Aimster

from the hmm...-where'd-that-come-from? dept

AOL is apparently preparing some sort of music service to work over AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). The article makes it out as if this is some sort of revolutionary idea – but it sounds like AOL is just biting off Aimster. So, instead of sharing your favorite music with your friends, you’ll now be able to (for a price I’m sure) pimp Time Warner’s bands to your friends.
