But aback you alpha to booty a attending at stocks, it gets a little uglier; in particular, Honeywell. Rumors in the bazaar accept Honeywell missing its aboriginal quarter, and the banal is bottomward added than 8 to a 52- anniversary low, and that is belief heavily on the Dow industrials. The aggregation itself is not commenting. Executives at Merrill Lynch additionally not commenting except to say they haven’t appear with the aggregation and don’t now how the May ages came in for Honeywell.

Our Bruce Francis has a attending at what the technology is and what companies are allusive for your television set — Bruce.
BRUCE FRANCIS, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Terry, these companies who are aggravating to acquaint alternate TV systems accept to afflicted affectionate of a checky accomplished for alternate TV. Afore the Internet was a big thing, Bell Atlantic and some of the buzz companies had all kinds of things that you were declared to be able to do over your TV, that didn’t absolutely pan out.
Cable companies haven’t absolutely auspiciously alien an alternate TV belvedere yet. There are accessories that absolutely never went anywhere, like Apple’s Pippen, never absolutely took off. And, of course, best recently, the accession of WebTV from Microsoft, WebTV, which was afterwards purchased by Microsoft, over the accomplished few years, got about a amateur members. Absorbing class definer initially, but hasn’t absolutely gotten the advanced absorption of a lot of folks.
Now, of course, AOLTV, which is actuality appear today, is action to focus on interactivity amid members, absolutely online babble is action to be the analgesic app. But I anticipate it’s appealing bright from talking to experts, no one’s absolutely assertive what the analgesic app or the best use, the best acute use of this new technology is action to be, and that’s for AOL, Microsoft and others to try to ascertain — Terry.
KEENAN: OK, acknowledge you actual much, Bruce, Bruce Francis.
We are aing now by America Online’s admiral and arch operating officer, Robert Pittman.
TUCKER: That’s right, and we should point out, as a accepted disclaimer, that AOL and CNN’s ancestor company, Time Warner, accept arise their affairs to merge. But don’t worry, we won’t let the actuality that Bob is about to be our bang-up access this interview, Bob, acknowledge you acknowledgment for advancing in.
ROBERT PITTMAN, PRESIDENT AND CEO, AMERICA ONLINE: Somehow I faculty that it’s action to accomplish it worse.
TUCKER: Acknowledge you for actuality here.
You know, we talked about this actuality an industry in its infancy, now my catechism is: Are you allurement too abundant of the consumer? are you action to pony up the $250 for the set-top box, additional the annual fees in accession to the cable subscriptions, seems like it would accomplish it boxy for you to get it home.
PITTMAN: You know, I anticipate you’ve got to have, you know, aback bodies alpha spending money, it’s got to be annual it. I mean, who would accept anticipation we would be paying, you know, $60 for cable TV, or $50, or $60, or a $100 for cellular buzz service, or whatever. And I anticipate the acumen we do is because it is annual it, and we anticipate it is of that value.
From our standpoint, though, we are accomplishing article altered than bodies accept done in the past. And I was — in 1979, 1980 spent a little bit of time with Cube and Columbus, which was allegedly the granddaddy of all the alternate TV experiments. And I anticipate what all of them approved to do was change axiological behavior, which never works.
PITTMAN: So what we are doing, as against to aggravating to accomplish your TV a computer, we’re aggravating to say: you adulation your TV, it’s great, you absorb seven hours a day with it, it’s your admired box in the home, but we can add some interactivity to it to accomplish it added enjoyable. With 300 channels you can’t cream to acquisition what you want, the appearance is over by the time you acquisition it. That scrolling guide, you know, will drive you nuts. So the abstraction is an alternate affairs guide, acceptable idea.
Added behavior you like, honey, arise here, attending at this, you’ve got the associate annual up there, you can afire bulletin and do behavior you’re already doing; or you see article on TV, I appetite to — that reminds me of something. Well, now instead of action to assurance on the computer or authoritative yourself a note, you can go to it adapted abroad while are you still watching TV,
So the abstraction is: acquisition out what bodies are already doing, add to it. And I think, as with any new product, it begins baby and grows, it’s not revolutionary, it’s evolutionary, and we anticipate the prime admirers for it are bodies who are already on AOL, who are already online, already accept a awning name, already accept a associate annual set up, already accept a banal portfolio. And now they can aloof get to it in one added way.
By the way, I’m additionally accustomed in my abridged the new Sprint buzz which additionally allows you to get AOL, so it’s all allotment of this accomplished abstraction of AOL anywhere, hub with spokes on it.
KEENAN: And that raises the question, though, of inter- operability: if I’m on a altered Internet Annual Provider, will I be able to use this AOL set-top box?
PITTMAN: Well, you will abandoned be able to use it if you, you know, appetite to go to a Web armpit or go to it in accession way, but really, this is like all the ISPs are different. You assurance up with a altered password, a altered awning name, this one is for either AOL associates or bodies who appetite to set up a appropriate AOLTV account.
You know, a fair cardinal of bodies do accept two Internet accounts, so conceivably they will, but I anticipate the absolute candied atom is bodies who are already adequate with AOL, already apperceive how AOL works, already accept aggregate set up and aloof appetite the get AOL one added way.
TUCKER: Are you animate with altered agreeable providers with AOLTV as against to AOL online?
PITTMAN: Yes, we’re — what we’ve, you know, what we’ve absolutely done with AOLTV, as against to actuality agreeable we’re providing, it’s absolutely a platform. And we’ve basically told all affairs suppliers: Look, if you appetite to do an alternate adaptation of what you do, it is enabled by AOLTV, arise and get it. And you know, I anticipate bodies will arise to it at altered speeds.
You know, you alike accept networks like Oxygen now. breadth they absolutely started with their Web armpit first, and afresh congenital a TV arrangement to go forth with the Web site. And obviously, they’re in on this anon because of they’re, you know, actuality out advanced on it.
KEENAN: I appetite to ask you about the AOL-Time Warner accord arise with abundant alarum at the alpha of the year, we accept to be in an added adverse authoritative environment, as evidenced, in particular, by the Microsoft accomplishments of late. Are you assured that this accord is action to get through and aback would you apprehend it to close?
PITTMAN: Sure, we are absolutely assured it will get through, and we abide to apprehend it to aing by the end of the year. And I think, if you attending at this, I anticipate we apprehend a fair bulk of bodies attractive at it in scrutiny. It is a big deal. The approaching is the Internet, but I anticipate bodies are actuality actual fair, and they are demography the time to appraise the issues, which is all you can ask.
KEENAN: Is the bazaar actuality fair, your banal bulk breadth it is in the mid…
PITTMAN: Well, you know, I anticipate allotment of the affair you consistently accept with the banal bulk is that, rather than aggravating to watch your banal price, the best affair to do is aloof run the company, and try and accept a acknowledged company, and eventually, if your adventure is out of accompany with reality, it will t up. And from our standpoint, yes, we acquaint the adventure often, but the capital affair we accept to do is bear and abide to bear because that’s what the Street’s attractive for.
TUCKER: On a altered accountable over the weekend, you accomplished some hacking into AOL computers adopting the affair of security. Ironically advancing at the aforementioned time you’ve got a lot of burden on you to accessible up your afire messaging system. How does AOL acknowledge to that?
PITTMAN: Well, I anticipate the two are angry together, which is one of the affidavit that we are actual anxious about afire messaging is that when, interoperability of e-mail was designed, no one anticipation about the bad stuff, they aloof anticipation about the acceptable stuff. Today, it is a aloft aperture for hackers, and indeed, about — it looks like allegedly 200 associates out of the 23 amateur were affected, which is not many, but it still, if it is added than one, it is a problem.
And they got in through e-mail, and so aback we advised afire messaging, and we advised it originally, we fabricated a accommodation about three years ago that we didn’t appetite to ascendancy it, that we were action to accomplish it free, we started giving it abroad to bodies who were not AOL members, who the aing footfall was, we had added ISPs said, we appetite it, and we said: OK, we will authorization it to you so continued as you will do this to assure our members. And they go: OK, so we accept accountant it to competitors.
And now we accept gone accession step, which is to say are action to try and amount out a way, and I doubtable we will succeed, in award a way that is absolutely inoperable, but in a way that protects our members’ aloofness and security.
If afire messaging angry into all the spam and issues we accept e-mail it would abort IM. So, can you brainstorm sitting there, briiiing, and it is an ad; or briiiing and it is some bad actor. Bodies pay us money to assure them, we booty it actual seriously, and I anticipate we will get there in a way that makes faculty for the industry and makes faculty for the members. TUCKER: All right.
KEENAN: All right, thanks, Bob.
PITTMAN: Great, acknowledge you.
