Time Warner Finally Gets Around to Canceling it's AOL


The chat rooms will be a little more empty now that media giant Time/Warner finally got around to canceling it's AOL. "We forgot we even owned them," said one exec, "We never use it. But one day while looking over the bills, we realized we were still paying for them."

The process to end the relationship was not an easy one. First they had to find the number to call to cancel and then "we had to stick to our guns. AOL kept offering great deals to keep them around," said TW's financial officer, "they kept dropping their price and even offered us a magazine subscription. It was tempting."

No word on what is going to happen to TW's Hometown Homepage.
