Buddy Info page - BETA from AOL
AOL has released their Buddy Info page
The Buddy Info page is very similar to BuddyGopher - it shows you all of your friends away messages in one window. But AOL takes it a few steps further, and allows you to comment on your friends away messages -- as well as their profiles!
So, to recap- the AIM Buddy Info page allows you to see all of your friends current away messages, profiles and Buddy Icons on one screen. You can also add comments to someone's away message, or add a comment to their profile (like, "Nice lyrics - did you write those yourself?").
Kudos to the AIM team for finally embracing the decade-old habit of reading away messages!
