I click on the tube (an infrequent action) and catch an ad from AOL. It is a pitch for AOL’s security offering, and it got me thinking. If the Walmart shoppers buying those cheap laptops go home and sign up for AOL, things might not be so bad after all.
The AOL service is providing anti-virus, anti-spyware, and anti-spam measures, as well as firewall software. Bundling security products may be the wave of the future, but I’m glad I don’t watch much TV.
