Time to get nostalgic as two big brands that were synonymous with the dot com boom of the 90s are about to share the same fate as the beeper and fax machine.  Verizon announced "Oath", the name of their new Internet business venture that will merge over twenty brands, including original internet icons AOL and Yahoo!, once its billion dollar buy is complete. As for the millions of email addresses, it is unclear at this time if they will change or be grandfathered into the new brand.  Look for the name change to occur sometime this summer.  Thanks AOL and Yahoo! for the memories of dial-up Internet and dozens of program CD's in the mail!  You will always hold a special place in our heart!
