NEW ON THE MENU

America Online Inc. is approaching the 1 million subscriber mark, and it's getting dressed up to celebrate. The information service is giving its menu screen a spiffy new "multimedia" interface. The screens, due in August for Macintosh users and a month later for the Windows crowd, should also make it simpler and faster to find what you want. People can click on 14 departments (up from 9), including personal finance, travel, education, and the Internet Center. Unfortunately, some of the featured services are so new that when you click on the icons for those departments, there may not be much underneath. For example, America Online still doesn't offer such Internet tools as "FTP" (for moving files around). AOL says it will eventually fill in the gaps.EDITED BY STEPHEN H. WILDSTROM
