America Online No More

No, the company isn't going anywhere, but it's formal name is gone, and the company is to be simply known as "AOL". It's not the first name change though, back in 1985 it started out as Quantum Computer Services, and switched over to America Online in 1991.

"AOL had 19.5 million U.S. subscribers as of Dec. 31, a 27 percent drop from its peak of 26.7 million in September 2002. Over the past year, AOL has been increasingly shifting its efforts at making articles, video and other materials available for free through its ad-supported sites."
