    AIM is is dead... sort of....

    Its a sign of the times guys aim is no longer making updates
    Kids today are connected with facebook back then it was aim
    hopefully the 90's kids will keep it alive as updates to it seem to have stopped
    Download it before its gone? > http://www.aim.com/

    For anyone inside the generation for which AOL was synonymous with the internet, and AIM was prerequisite to any social life at all, some pretty sad news: AOL just sacked its IM team. The old king of chat is paraplegic.

    The NYT's Nick Bilton reports the mass canning:

    The AOL Instant Messenger group took the deepest cut so far. A former AOL employee said the group was "eviscerated and now only consists of support staff." This person, who asked not to be named because they were not allowed to speak publicly about the company, added that "nearly all of the West Coast tech team has been killed."

    Support staff only means no more developers. No more developers means no more new software. No more new software means AIM stops growing and changing forever, frozen on the decline

    All of my friends use AIM. We're from that generation so it's what we know

    It's a shame to see it go, but I was never much of a fan anyways. I mostly use skype now.
