AOL Video Portal and then some...

In beta, and a review - its got some very nice, high quality content.

And proving that no good deed goes unpunished:
oops (and then some)... the idea was to provide the search research community access to significant data they might not otherwise have had - a good goal - and heartfelt apologies have been issued for the privacy snafu.

I onced worked with you at AOL. I thought you were a smart person. Why are you still at AOL? Is it because I am wrong and you are not as smart as I thought you were?

You only think I guessed wrong - that's what's so funny. I switched [careers] when your back was turned. Ha-ha, you fool. You fell victim to one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is "Never get involved in a land war in Asia", but only slightly less well known is this: "Never go in against a Sicilian, when *death* is on the line.".

Am I the only one who thinks it's absolutely pathetic that AOL's "apology" is published at and not on some AOL property?

You know, when our own Corporate Communications team doesn't communicate with our customers using our own assets, you know we're done for.

yeah, though I'm hardly one to be throwing stones about THAT :P
