eWorld Users to Be Switched to AOL: Apple Computer Inc. said subscribers will have access to America Online Inc., the largest online service, after the Cupertino, Calif.-based company shuts down its online service at the end of the month. The announcement is part of a larger collaboration between the nation's No. 3 personal computer maker and the Vienna, Va.-based online service provider. Separately, Apple named Fred Anderson chief financial officer, banking on a turnaround expert with an information systems background to help solve its inventory problems. Anderson, 51, was CFO at Automatic Data Processing Inc., a big payroll-processing company.
