AskJeeves Purchase

On March 21, 2005 AskJeeves announced their purchase by IAC/InterActiveCorp (Nasdaq: IACI) for $1.85 billion. The addition of the vast number of services offered by IAC/InterActiveCorp AskJeeves could well become a more significant contender in the search engine arena.

This already excellent and relevant engine stands poised to take a much bigger piece of the pie. Don’t expect any of the big three to drop out of the race anytime soon however they should be looking over their shoulders and trying to insure that the increase in AskJeeves usage does not come from their piece.
