Ah yes... where we would be today without that never ending supply of AOL floppies in those far of golden daze of yaw(n)...

At least they could be reused, unlike all those CDs which used to come with magazines galore...

Yeah, AOL makes its money taking ads like that and allows the companies to make it sound like they are recommending things (from all that I hear). AOL was always considered to be 'training wheels' for the real internet back in the early days (Windows 95 era), Way back then I went to use one of their 'free trials' but they would not work without a credit card. Assuming I would forget to cancel on the right day and pay at least a few months, fortunately I refused and uninstalled it right away. I probably am one of the rare survivors from back then that can say they never had an AOL email account. Now I believe you can get one free but if I need a free email account I can always use GMail. Even then there was never a reason to use their 'browser'.

You couldn't get away from those damn AOL discs or floppies, there were everywhere - mail, attached to magazines, delivered with the newspaper. Then came Juno, Netzero, & Kmart's BlueLight. I used to grab the free discs just to install the bundled software. Those were the days. I still have one of the metal tins the AOL disc came in.

Or Frisbees into brick walls until they shatter. It took quite a bit of abuse to destroy them.

I must have had about 80-100 AOL CDs at one time.
I could never come up with a use for them. I do still
have quite a few of the fancy boxes.
