AOL to Its Customers: Home Page? What Home Page?

According to CNET, America On-Line has permanently fixed the home page on the browser portion of its new AOL 6.0 client software to its own Web Site.

What surprises us is that no one has picked up on this statement-- perhaps one of the dumbest statements made by an Internet executive in recent history:

"What we did was we looked at the
toolbar as a whole, and in that
redesign, in that streamlining, we moved some things around," said Jeff
Kimball, executive director at AOL. "And yes, {the home page button is} not there."
