AOL scarfs up MapQuest
The giant online service provider AOL announced today that it intends to buy
one of my favorite online mapping services, www.MapQuest.com
You can get free online maps, traffic reports and driving directions--among
things--from MapQuest. Details of the move are in this TechWeb article
. This move should offer more services to AOL users, but, more importantly, should
help AOL maintain its position of dominance in the online industry as pretty much the most
bloated company in existence.
