Verizon is set to buy AOL for 4.4 billion dollars. What? Looks like Verizon has way too much money on their hands to buy the venerable, but now antiquated, internet provider. I mean people joke about those of of who still hang onto their AOL account. What on earth does Verizon want with it?
Oh wait. AOL still has a large dial up business which is very lucrative. What? Sadly this part of the business must be coming from a large part of rural America which has not been able to get high speed internet.
