    The new digital media devision of Verizon that will include Yahoo, AOL, and The Huffington Post will be called Oath, The New York Times reports:

    The brand will apply to the digital media division of Verizon after it buys Yahoo’s internet assets for $4.48 billion, a deal that is expected to close by the end of June. But do not count the legacy brands out just yet: Yahoo, AOL and The Huffington Post will continue to exist and operate with their own names — under the Oath umbrella.

    Sort of a who’s who of internet companies from two decades ago. Maybe they should buy MySpace too?

    I'd love a Myspace comeback... everything becomes cool again eventually, right??

    As a member of the AIM generation, it is nice to see some sliver of AOL still around I suppose.
