AOL adds fees to IM feature, users jump ship. Betcha. Nobody is willing to pay for IM, no way. And why should we, when there are a half-dozen perfectly good options for free?

Admittedly, AOL is only planning to charge for such things as Yahoo’s IMVironments, but still. Yes, I know Yahoo charges extra for high-speed webcam use. I know MSN is evil. I know ICQ is virtually dead (thanks for that one, AOL – ICQ used to rock). But, AIM is number one by far, and they think that people will pay for extras. Not likely, in my opinion.

    I tend to agree. With tools like trillian out there to make the choices even easier, I don’t see why anyone would stick with a paid service when there are good alternatives.
