Put these two articles together (from previous posts)

http://www.iweek.com/736/cash.htm

and something interesting drops out :

Last year, First USA became the first financial institution to announce its participation in the InstaBuy program. First USA plans to issue VersaPay electronic wallets to its millions of card holders and other consumers on the Internet. VersaPay is powered by the InstaBuy technology.

In June, online music vendor CDNow Inc. will start accepting payments from customers using America Online's digital wallet, which AOL developed with First USA and began testing late last year with a handful of retailers.

I can read this two ways

1)AOL is moving ahead using CYCH's important partner, First USA, but not CYCH itself.
2) FirstUSA is moving ahead with CYCH, and may bring AOL with them.
