service.We’ve streamlined the look, enhanced our most
popular features and services, and added an array of other
exciting innovations to bring the AOL service to a new level
of ease of use and everyday convenience, and to give current
members and other online consumers even more reasons to
enjoy the benefits of AOL membership.
As with every new AOL product, members’ feedback played a
central role in the development of version 6.0, which
includes their top requests and suggestions and offers more
personalization and added benefits of “AOL Anywhere.”(SM)
New Benefits of “AOL Anywhere”(SM)
AOL 6.0 is another major step in our “AOL Anywhere” (SM)
strategy of making our members lives easier and more
convenient by making AOL’s industry-leading brands and
features available to them anywhere, anytime they want –
from their PCs, the Web, their TVs, their phones, their
pagers, and other personal mobile devices.


As part of its new design, AOL 6.0 features a new button on
the main toolbar that directly connects members to a new
“AOL Anywhere” site.This new “AOL Anywhere” site brings
to life the spectrum of AOL features and services that
members can access from wherever they are, including AOL e-
mail, instant message features, the My Calendar(SM) service,
portfolios, and other personalized news and local
information – from either the Web or non-PC devices.AOL
is also introducing a new AOL by Phone voice service, which
lets members access their AOL accounts using their voice –
from any telephone. These services will roll out with the
AOL 6.0 service later this year.
