AOL re-enters Australia

Out of nowhere AOL has surfaced in AU.

And the first thing you notice about the site is that it is an absolute unashamed rip off of the Yahoo!7 homepage.

I remember AOL's other 2 failed attempts in this market and assume the 2008 V3 won't be much different. There only strong property is tmz.com and that doesn't need a local mirror.

View the eerie homepage similarities.

You can change the colour scheme at AOL, while on Y7 you can change the page width - they're nothing alike!
