I believe that the game is over for AOL even with a tremendous amount of investment.

AOL’s strength was a universal access vector that happened to have good enough content for a captive audience. Those days are long gone. AOL has not been successful in a competitive content environment and AOL cannot support the current overhead even with a wildly successful Internet content scheme.

It will continue to die a slow death or at least shrink to a small shadow of its current self.

Of course, the possibility of being spun off and out from under the TW umbrella is exciting enough in its own right. I never thought I would think this but maybe there is some life in AOL but they will have a lot of work to do to define themselves in the marketplace since no one is truly aware of what they are today.
