What's Next for AOL?

It seems that TimeWarner is ready to eject AOL. One part will be the remnants of the ISP business, which I think EarthLink will grab, but Tara Seals at Xchange mag thinks that United Online (NetZero folks) or MSn would bid. I don't think in this economy that there will be bidding war for dial-up users, a declining revenue vehicle. Also, EarthLink is out looking to buy dial-up base. United Online is focused on its online properties (classmates and points.com) and they just bought FTD. MSN is not an ISP, but an internet portal for companies like Qwest. MSN likely would want the advertising piece of AOL, which I think Google, Yahoo and Microsoft would bid for.
