AOL, through its Xdrive subsidiary, will offer 5 GB of free online storage next month. The best coverage of this is from Glenn Fleishman over at TidBITS, who also vents a bit (justifiably so) about other AOL activites of the past few days. My favorite graf:
What all this means for AOL is hard to say. AOL’s software still stinks. AOL’s email filtering is highly erratic. Any of us who run mailing lists are familiar with suddenly having all of our double opt-in, fully approved AOL users bounce our email for some obscure reason that’s impossible to address directly with AOL.
