AOL (stylized as Aol., formerly a company known as AOL Inc.
and originally known as America Online) is an American web portal and online service provider based in New York City. The service traces its history to an online service known as Play NET, which hosted multi-player games for the Commodore 64.
Play NET licensed their software to a new service, Quantum Link (Q-Link), who went online in November 1985. The initial Q-Link service was similar to the original Play NET, but over time Q-Link added many new services.
When a new IBM PC client was released, the company focussed on the non-gaming services and launched it under the name America Online.
In May 1988, Quantum and Apple launched Apple Link Personal Edition for Apple II and Macintosh computers.
In August 1988, Quantum launched PC Link, a service for IBM-compatible PCs developed in a joint venture with the Tandy Corporation.per game.
This also coincided with a new "carpet bombing" marketing campaign by CMO Jan Brandt to distribute as many free trial AOL trial disks as possible through nonconventional distribution partners.
Kimsey soon began to groom Case to take over the role of CEO, which he did when Kimsey retired in 1991.
The Quantum Link software was based on software licensed from Play Net, Inc, (founded in 1983 by Howard Goldberg and Dave Panzl).
A commercial featuring Steve Case telling people AOL was working day and night to fix the problem was made.
Within three years, AOL's user base grew to 10 million people.
