AOL just keeps messing with us


Openride_logo_as_it_should_beI must have read five articles about the new AOL OpenRide that is a web browser app that does email and media playing too.  It sounded pretty good and I thought to myself, maybe AOL has learned its lesson about messing with their members and is getting something right.  Podcasting buddy Marc Orchant popped my balloon with an article he posted on his ZDNET Office Evolution blog.  It seems Marc tried to install OpenRide and found buried in the install that you must install AOL Desktop Search to install OpenRide.  What?  According to Marc there is no warning before you download and the only warning is during the install itself and easy to miss.  AOL. Just. Doesn’t. Get. It.
