Can there be two “internets”

Watching the second presidential debate and just caught another verbal slip to go with the “mexed missages” post from the first debate.

When questioned about the prospect of a draft, President Bush said, “I hear there are rumors on the internets, that there is going to be a draft for the military.” This is the first time I’ve ever heard the net referred to in the plural and it goes to show how out of touch Mr. Bush is from my world.

AOL dumps Netscape?

I’m not sure I totally follow what’s going on here but CNet reports today that they are now going to base their new browser on Internet Explorer technology.

Huh? Didn’t AOL buy a browser company for this purpose?
