Verizon is buying AOL for $4.4 billion, mainly for its video assets. Will this make Verizon a bigger threat to Google and Facebook in online advertising? And what's it mean for Yahoo and Twitter?

Investopedia.com reports that one sign you might be addicted to investing is that you have an online brokerage account. They say, "Prior to the advent of the online brokerage, prospective investors had to go through financial intermediaries with access to stock exchanges, otherwise known as brokerage firms. The process, being arduous and costly, was a textbook opportunity for middlemen to step in and lower the transaction costs. In 1969, the creation of the first Electronic Communication Network (ECN) paved the way for online brokerages, revolutionizing the industry forever.
