 AOL Inc. (simply known as AOL, originally known
as America Online, stylized as Aol.) is an
American multinational mass media corporation based
in New York, a subsidiary of Verizon
Communications.
 AOL was one of the early pioneers of the internet in the
mid-1990s, and the most recognized brand on the web in
the U.S.
1983-91: EARLY YEARS
 AOL began in 1983, as a
short-lived venture
called Control Video
Corporation (CVC),
founded by Bill von
Meister.
 Its sole product was an
online service
called  GameLine, a
service that hook your
phone line to rent games
for $1.
1991–2006: INTERNET AGE,
TIME WARNER MERGER
 1991 to 2006 they launched
many pay-based online
services and multi-player
online games like ‘Dungeons
& Dragons’ and ‘Never
winter Nights’ from Storm
front Studios.
 At the height of its
popularity, it purchased the
media corporation Time
Warner in the largest merger
in U.S. History.
2006–09: REBRANDING AND
DECLINE
 On April 3, 2006, AOL announced
it was retiring the full name
America Online; the official name
of the service became AOL, and the
full name of the Time Warner
subdivision became AOL LLC.
 On September 17, 2007, AOL announced it was moving
one of its corporate headquarters from Dulles, Virginia,
to New York City and combining its various advertising
units into a new subsidiary.
 This action followed several advertising acquisitions,
most notably Advertising.com, and highlighted the
company's new focus on advertising-driven business
models.
 In December 2006, AOL closed their last remaining call
centre in the United States, "taking the America out of
America Online" according to industry pundits. Service
centres based in India and the Philippines continue to
this day to provide customer support and technical
assistance to subscribers.
 Things go sour almost from the get-go: company cultures
don’t mix, broadband Internet eats up America Online’s
customers. And it destroyed the company’s stock worth
from $226 billion to $20 billion. Thus begins the fall of
America Online. 
2009–15: AS A DIGITAL
MEDIA COMPANY
 On March 12, 2009, Tim
Armstrong, formerly
with Google, was named
Chairman and CEO of AOL.
Shortly thereafter, on May
28, TimeWarner announced
it would spin off AOL as an
independent company.
 AOL bought The
Huffington Post for
$315 million
PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
AOL's products and services are in the following
areas:
Content
Advertising
Membership
CORPORATE SOCIAL
RESPONSIBILITY
 Since spinning off from Time Warner in 2010, AOL has
made CSR an important part of its mission. In its
company values, AOL states, "We are in the business of
helping people, period.”
 Each year on the company's birthday, AOL employees
around the world are invited to participate in Monster
Help Day.
 Other CSR initiatives include producing cause-related
content for AOL properties; donating PSA campaigns
throughout the AOL network; empowering consumers
through cause-related contests and initiatives;
implementing a permanent cause module on AOL's
homepage, dedicated to promoting non profit
organizations.
CONTROVERSY
 AOL CEO Tim Armstrong came
under fire by outraged employees
after he singled out the sick babies
of two women at the company for
increasing the cost of health
benefits. Armstrong explained that
the sick babies forced AOL to dole
out millions in medical expenses
on a company-wide conference call.
 He blamed higher health care
costs and then said:  "We had two
AOL workers that had distressed
babies that were born that we paid
$1 million each to make sure those
babies were OK in general.“
“Distressed babies”
comment
Tim Amstrong
ALL IN ONE PLATFORM
 In January 2016 AOL has developed an offering that gives
publishers a way to monetize their work without having to
use tools from multiple companies.
 Called One by AOL: Publishers, it consolidates the company’s
portfolio of services into a single package that provides
audience engagement, analytics, content distribution, and
revenue management all in one place.
 Microsoft corporation is an American multi national software
corporation headquartered in Redmond, Washington that
develops, manufactures, licenses, and supports a wide range
of products and services related to computing.
 The company was founded by Bill gates and Paul Allen on
April 4, 1975.
 Microsoft is the world’s largest software maker measured by
revenues. It is also one of the world’s most valuable company.

ABOUT
 In 1980, Microsoft formed a partnership with IBM that
allowed them to bundle Microsoft’s operating system with
IBM computers, paying Microsoft a royalty for every sale.
 In 1985, IBM requested that Microsoft write a new
operating system for their computers called OS/2.
 When Microsoft launched several versions of Microsoft
windows in the 1990s they had captured over 90% market
share of the world’s personal computers.
 The company has now become largely successful.

 Office suits
 Xbox for games
 Internet explorer
 Search engine
 Mail’s
 Security
 Servers
 Cloud storage device
 Visual studio
 Calling device
POLITICAL FACTORS
 Most notably, Microsoft has attracted the attention of
governments and political parties due to antitrust-related
issues. A recent probe by China’s State Administration for
Industry and Commerce into the ways Microsoft distributes
its Internet Explorer browser and Windows Media Player and
sells its Office and Windows software in China can be
mentioned as a relevant example of impact of a political
factor.
 The political conditions also impact Microsoft in the sense
that European Union fined Microsoft in 2004 to take out its
media player version from European’s Windows version
(General Environment, 2014).
 Microsoft (along with Google, Yahoo, Cisco, AOL, Skype,
and other companies) has cooperated with the Chinese
government in implementing a system of Internet
censorship.
 Human rights advocates such as Human Rights Watch and
media groups such as Reporters Without Borders criticized
the companies, noting for example that it is "ironic that
companies whose existence depends on freedom of
information and expression have taken on the role of
censor."
CRITICISMS
CENSORSHIP IN
CHINA
WEBSITE CONCERNS
 Polish users of Microsoft's Business Productivity Infrastructure
website have noticed a white model's face has
been photoshopped over the head of the African American model at
centre in the photograph on the main page of the Polish
language version of the website. The website 'Photoshop Disasters'
covered the story on 25 August 2009.
 As of 1:00 A.M. GMT on 25 August, this has been changed and the
image on the Polish website now reflects the image on the English
website. Microsoft later issued an apology regarding the incident.
Sincere apologies - we're in the process of taking down the image.
CRITICISM OF WINDOWS
VISTA
 Windows Vista, an operating system released
by Microsoft in November 2006, has been criticized by
reviewers and users.
 Due to issues with privacy, security, performance, driver
support and product activation, Windows Vista has been
the subject of a number of negative assessments by various
groups.
GOOGLE VS BING
 When Google came out and said that Microsoft's search
engine Bing was copying its results, many were not
surprised. Only when side-by-side comparisons were
made did it become clear that Google may have been right.
 Microsoft said that it had not copied results, but Google had
already set up the 'Bing sting' which was designed to prove
that Microsoft had done so. It turned out that indeed Bing
had been copying search results by "watching" what people
search for on Google, the search giant said.
THE BLUE SCREEN OF
DEATH
 Blue Screen of Death is an error screen displayed on
a Windows computer system after a fatal system error, also
known as a system crash: when the operating
system reaches a condition where it can no longer operate
safely.
 The Blue Screen of Death was displayed for 2 hours during
the 2008 Olympics opening ceremony.
 2 billion people saw the infamous error screen at the event,
which had cost $100 million.
UNDER NEW CEO
 Appointment of new CEO Satya Nadella on February 4,
2015 is seen by many as an opportunity for the company to
revive its role and significance in the global market.
 Introduction of Office on iPad which led to 35 million
downloads becoming a popular application on Apple App
Store, record commercial cloud revenues of $4.4 billion.
 Introduction of Cortana, a virtual assistant built into
Windows Phone 8.1 can be interpreted as positive changes
that occurred since the appointment of the new CEO.
 Microsoft mission states that it wants to become the world
leading innovative technology producer that able to help it’s
diverse customer around the globe to realize their potential.
 Apart from producing the windows operating system,
Microsoft is also providing a series of effective and useful
business office suit such as Microsoft office, Bing, Skype and
so on. These lead Microsoft to be dominant in the software
and programming industry.
 Meanwhile, Microsoft also becomes active at other industries
in recent years. For instance; it has participated in video
game industry in the early 2000s by introducing Xbox.
Besides, Microsoft has also been involving itself in the mobile
phone industry and attempt to occupy a certain market share
by using it’s windows phone.
THANK YOUTHANK YOU

  • 2.  AOL Inc. (simply known as AOL, originally known as America Online, stylized as Aol.) is an American multinational mass media corporation based in New York, a subsidiary of Verizon Communications.  AOL was one of the early pioneers of the internet in the mid-1990s, and the most recognized brand on the web in the U.S.
  • 3. 1983-91: EARLY YEARS  AOL began in 1983, as a short-lived venture called Control Video Corporation (CVC), founded by Bill von Meister.  Its sole product was an online service called  GameLine, a service that hook your phone line to rent games for $1.

  • 10. CONTROVERSY  AOL CEO Tim Armstrong came under fire by outraged employees after he singled out the sick babies of two women at the company for increasing the cost of health benefits.

  • 17.  Microsoft (along with Google, Yahoo, Cisco, AOL, Skype, and other companies) has cooperated with the Chinese government in implementing a system of Internet censorship.  Human rights advocates such as Human Rights Watch and media groups such as Reporters Without Borders criticized the companies, noting for example that it is "ironic that companies whose existence depends on freedom of information and expression have taken on the role of censor."

Sincere apologies - we're in the process of taking down the image.

  • 20. GOOGLE VS BING  When Google came out and said that Microsoft's search engine Bing was copying its results, many were not surprised. Only when side-by-side comparisons were made did it become clear that Google may have been right.  Microsoft said that it had not copied results, but Google had already set up the 'Bing sting' which was designed to prove that Microsoft had done so. It turned out that indeed Bing had been copying search results by "watching" what people search for on Google, the search giant said.
