Breakup: AOL & CompuServe (and Netscape)
Thought to have been quietly euthanized by AOL in 2009, CompuServe.com survives today as a circa 2002-era news portal. Even weirder? Its headlines are delivered by the vestigial remains of Netscape. Have we entered a time warp? Possibly. But it's a golden opportunity for AOL to spin off the portal as a retro social network for digital hipsters who were still in short pants when it acquired CompuServe in 1997. Could anything be cooler than sporting an email address of email@example.com on your business card? We think not.
