Today, the walls come tumbling down at America Online, as the nation's leading consumer Internet service starts giving away most of its popular online services free of charge on its AOL.com Web site. "AOL.com in the past hasn't been thought of as a place to come for great content for free," said Kerry Parkins, director of product marketing for America Online. But Parkins said this will change in the next few months, as AOL moves nearly all of its features away from the company's exclusive subscription service and onto a Web portal.

The story claimed that AOL's new 2 GB mail service had exactly as much storage as does Google's Gmail service. This is untrue--Gmail is continuously growing in storage space, meaning that current users now have approximately 2.3 GB of storage. A small difference, perhaps, but an important one.
