AOL's New TV Advertisements

Is it just me, or do the new AOL advertisements seem rather “high and mighty”? As if they can make the Internet better. They don’t own the Internet. They just plug into it, then filter your experience to their liking.

AOL has consistently resisted the Internet - their email being a prime example. Until recently all AOL email sent from AOL to a non-AOL email address was rendered in plain-text. The reason? AOL refused to use HTML/RTF to format email messages per the Internet standard - instead, they used their own proprietary methods.

But I guess since they invented the Internet - with Al Gore’s help, of course - they have the right to claim that they, and they alone, can make it better.
