The AOL-Time Warner Saga Bookends One Sorry Decade

http://gawker.com

The 21st century dawned with news that two media megaliths, AOL and Time Warner, were to merge. Critics howled that the vast tentacles of a combined AOL-TW would subsume us all. Today, Time Warner confirmed it's spinning off AOL, ending a business saga that defined whatever you're calling the 2000s. In retrospect, AOL's deal to acquire — and then be run by — Time Warner marked the end of a century when old media conglomerates were at their peak. The merger, valued at $182 billion when it was announced, was the largest in U.S. history. It is also arguably the most disastrous in history. The combined value of the two companies — both inflated by the dot-com bubble — was $350 billion. Today, before the spin-off goes through, the whole shebang sports a market cap of just under $28 billion.

With no buyers in sight, Time Warner finally to spin off AOL

http://arstechnica.com

The marriage between AOL and Time Warner has generally not been a happy one. The original vision was that AOL would provide an outlet for the material that Time Warner's other divisions produced, giving the combined company a whole-widget approach to content. That never worked out, and the division was often a drag on its parent company's earnings. As a result, rumors that AOL was for sale have circulated for years (Ars' coverage of them dates back to at least 2005), and played a prominent role in the awkward ballet performed by Microsoft and Yahoo last year. None of the deals ever came to fruition, and now it appears that Time Warner has given up: AOL will be spun off as an independently traded company. There are still a couple of hurdles the spinoff will have to clear. Google owns a five percent stake in AOL, and Time Warner will have to buy that off the search giant before it can complete the transaction. There will also be a lot of internal bookkeeping maneuvers needed to surgically remove AOL from its parent, and the SEC will have to approve all of them.

Gmail Adds Email Import

http://www.ghacks.net

One of the things that many users like about Google’s email service Gmail is that the service is constantly advancing. Users get to test tools in Gmail Labs all the time and new features are added regularly. One of the new features is the ability to import emails from other popular email providers
such as Yahoo Mail, Windows Live or AOL but also POP3 accounts. There have been workarounds to accomplish that like the excellent gExodus email importer for the Windows operating system which allowed users to easily import mailboxes into Gmail. The new email import feature is not yet available for all Gmail accounts but will be added to all of them over time. New Gmail accounts on the other hand do have the email import feature enabled already.

Simplify your life, Move all your mails from Hotmail,Yahoo mail and AOL to Gmail

http://tech.passionvaibhav.com

So you’ve finally decided to change your webmail service and migrate to Gmail, but you don’t want to lose your old messages and the address book. Gmail offers a mail fetcher feature that works with all mail services that support POP, including Hotmail, but you can’t use it for regular Yahoo Mail accounts. As previously anticipated, Google released a tool that lets you import contacts and mail from popular services like Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, AOL Mail and from ISPs like Verizon, Comcast, Earthlink. If you don’t see a tab titled “Accounts and import” in Gmail’s settings, you need to wait until the new features are enabled in your account.
