Mobile AOL

You might have heard of a small company in Virginia called AOL. Well, it seems the online giant wants to gobble up another section of the technology world with its recent acquisition of software manufacturer Wildseed. Financial details were not disclosed, but considering Wildseed developed the youthcentric Curitel Identity phone, the purchase could provide AOL with a way to get a stronger footing in the cellular phone business. Instead of introducing AOL-themed handsets, I think AOL will use Wildseed to get its branded services more readily available on cell phones. You already can use the company's instant messenger on some mobiles, but I wouldn't put it past AOL to want it all. I just hope this doesn't mean I'll find double the number of AOL CDs cluttering my mailbox.
