Back in the early days of the world wide web, we all had an AOL email address. Remember those cds you’d get in the mail for a free trial or whatever? And you’d log on and sit through that annoying screeching sound while our dinosaur computers booted up and tried to get connected to the internet. Good times. But before it was AOL, it was America Online. And before it was THAT, it was actually called Quantum Computer Services. It was renamed American Online in 1991, then officially shortened to AOL in 2006. Then it was acquired by Verizon, merged with Yahoo, renamed Oath, then scrapped again and is now part of the Verizon Media Group.
