AOL TIME WARNER….This isn’t really unexpected, but still:

AOL Time Warner plans to drop “AOL” from its name, symbolizing the giant media company’s effort to put the failings of the biggest merger in history behind it and begin a new phase of its corporate identity, company executives said yesterday.

Unfortunately, trying to think of something snarky to say about this is pointless. It sort of snarks itself.

In any case, it’s now official: Steve Case is the most brilliant moneymaker of the last decade. Who else comes close?
