In AOL news: Open AIM continues to expand functionality, now with AIM bots, location-based services, and PC-to-PC calling. Since AIM supports SMS you can access the bots via your phone (like the Wall Street Journal bot). The location service is also designed for mobile devices -- it can use the network to determine location and, at the user's discretion, allow buddies to see this data.

The AOL AIM profile is here and AOL Presence here.
