1.0 Beta 2 (Oct 25, 2011)
The first warning flag was that the listed company website is a closed webs.com site. The second warning flag was that the file is available only from the shady "premium download" sites.
The real problem is that after installing this program, clicking on the Start Menu icon leads immediately to a Windows crash report. The program never actually ran. One star for bad vibes and complete application failure.
This needs more cooking before it's ready, methinks...

I'm disappointed in AOL - this version doesn't ask your permission, it just installs its toolbar and hijacks your browser homepage settings.
This is a major change from previous releases, and one that leaves me unable to recommend that you install it. There are better multi-platform clients such as Digsby or Trillian out there, and they're honest about what they install.
3.0 Beta 2 (Mar 11, 2010)
Users in the USA and Canada have to subscribe to Schedules Direct for this program to work.
Once you've done that, it works very well indeed.

I'm in the same boat as henrypeck. The initial scan never finishes, so I can't evaluate the software.

At version 0.60, it's "free" only if you pay $2.95 to download it and get a serial number. If you don't pay (and download from FileForum), you wind up hung at a prompt asking for a serial number when you run AIMutation the first time. Then, when you uninstall AIMutation, it doesn't uninstall cleanly -- leaving the hook for its OCM file in AIM's config -- so that you have to uninstall AIM and reinstall it. Thanks, guys! Won't be downloading THIS again...

For Apple: Given the success of the iPhone and iPod Touch, does Apple have plans to expand the line into something along the lines of a true OS X-based small-profile portable computer?

The reality is that a la carte would kill all but the largest networks -- thus probably strangling the very minority-owned networks the FCC is trying to protect.
So instead of 300+ channels, we'd have 50 or 60, all owned by the usual suspects (Disney, Viacom, Comcast, NBCU)... which might well happen anyway, but a la carte would make it happen faster.

The fact that most of America is so terrified that they're willing to give away their rights because power-hungry politicos tell them "we'll keep you safe" doesn't make it right.
Real ID is another example of government as nanny... as the saying goes, I don't know that I want my government to protect me as much as I want to be protected from my government...

Let's be realistic -- this delay is designed to allow the next President to make the final decision on Real ID. This way the current incumbent looks strong for his constituency (and what he thinks his legacy should be), and his replacement can then dismantle this offense against the privacy of the American public.
