Personal Technology -- Ask.Com's New Look Scores Big Points Against Search Rivals

Personal Technology -- Ask.Com's New Look Scores Big Points Against Search Rivals.: "Ask Jeeves, a largely failed search service, has been overhauled and renamed Ask.com. I've been testing the new Ask.com against the search champ, Google. I've found that in terms of relevant results and ease of use, Ask holds its own with Google, and even beats the champ on some searches. It has some very nice features Google lacks, including previews of the sites it finds, an easy way to narrow or broaden your search results, and frequent top-of-the-screen answers that lead you directly to core information."

Maybe Google will use part of that next ~$2B to acquire some of its search competitors...
