AOL Dials In Wireless Music Service

As AOL continues to look for more “premium” content services, they’re looking towards extending their music service to mobile phones. They’ve started the AOL Music Mobile Club which will let users download ringtones and other entertainment tidbits. Personally, I’m still confused as to what sorts of people want to spend extra money to get a ringtone which most everyone else will find annoying – but perhaps I’m out of touch with today’s youth.

Annoying, yes

But its all about personalization. At my last start up we hired some industrial designers to help up understand how teens think about technology and mobile devices. What they found was that kids have so little that is their own and the perception they have little power. So the idea of personalizing their possessions is a huge draw for them. Oh and you are out of touch. Wait, so am I.
