AOL Stinks… and Their Mother Dresses Them Funny!
You know I don’t like AOL at all. Well, I was watching DL.TV recently and they reported that 25% of AOL employees will soon be laid off! Bad for employees (sorry, dewds!) … but the good news is that AOL is dying! And meanwhile… it was in the news that AOL had released the search histories of many of their customers. I am sure that you may have searched for something you consider private, right? Well, not if you are an AOL customer! AOL stinks!
“AOL issued an apology yesterday for posting on a public Web site 20 million keyword searches conducted by hundreds of thousands of its subscribers from March to May. But the company’s admission that it made a mistake did little to quell a barrage of criticism from bloggers and privacy advocates who questioned the company’s security practices and said the data breach raised the risk of identity theft. ‘This was a screw-up and we’re angry and upset about it,” the company said in a statement. “Although there was no personally-identifiable data linked to these accounts, we’re absolutely not defending this. It was a mistake, and we apologize.'”
OK, now I feel better about AOL, don’t you?! NOT!!!
