AOL Shuts Down CNN & USAToday's Push Feed Subs

SUMMARY: No summary available.
Thank you to the Little Bird who just flew in to tell me that AOL discontinued its InfoGate services on July first. These included paid subscription newsfeed offerings from CNN and USA Today.

Apparently there were lots of calls and emails from upset subscribers who adored the services, but not enough to make a difference in the decision (kind of like fans trying to save a doomed national TV show.)

However all is not lost, AOL is running its own beta test of a push-service to members now. You can sign up as a Beta tester by going to AOL keyword ACBeta.
