AOLTW Announces Sony Pact

Tuesday November 13th, 2001

Normally we wouldn't mention this, except there was a key quote that we thought should be highlighted in the press release:

* The joint development of an Internet browser designed for optimal performance, a consistent experience, and greater convenience on networked consumer electronic devices. Both companies envision not only employing the browser in future Sony products but also making it available to other consumer electronics manufacturers.
Could we soon see Mozilla on Sony devices like the Playstation or other pc based devices?

#56 It is interesting....

You know it is interesting how some news sites want to trash projects, maybe this is done to increase traffic to their site. If the C/Net reporter has researched the story he/she would have found out the Mozilla/Netscape is under testing by AOL in the beta release of Compuserve 7. it makes sense for AOL to trial Netscape on Compuserve, which has a much smaller user base, before it transitions AOL to Netscape. The C/Net story has a much different conclusion when this additional information is included. (BTW C/Net is a sister site to ZDNet. (Both of these sites are so pro Microsoft and anti-(anthing which dares compete against Microsoft) it is sad. Many people do not follow the tech news closely enough to notice this and take what these two sites proclaim as truth.)
