AOL puts hold on interoperability efforts

America Online has put a hold on its interoperability efforts, which would allow users of its instant messenger service to chat with users of other services, such as MSN and Yahoo, through a direct connection. This was revealed in a letter AOL filed with the FCC last week, reports Reuters. AOL said it will now focus on alternative ways of achieving interoperability, such as its relationship with Apple and their iChat application, which is based on AOL Instant Messenger.
