SURFING THE WEB: USA TODAY LAUNCHES FREE COMPANION SITE
Published June 2, 1995
USA Today has opened a public Web site to accompany its subscription-only service. The public site is located at http://www.usatoday.com. From the public home page, users can go to five "section fronts" -- News, Sports, Money, Life and Weather -- with each providing top stories. The pay service includes sports scores that are updated as games are in progress and full game summaries and analyses for all major and most other professional sports (USA Today). AOL TO LAUNCH NET-ONLY SERVICE: America Online will offer an Internet-only service "separate from its flagship service," according to the WALL STREET JOURNAL. AOL's Net service will launch August 24, the same day Microsoft kicks off The Microsoft Network (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 6/2).
