AskJeeves Buys Their Way Into Desktop Search
from the the-little-engine-that-could-buy dept
While Google has made news for its plans to launch a desktop search tool that would compete with Microsoft’s desktop search tool in Longhorn (should, you know, that ever get released), AskJeeves continues to putter away quietly in the background buying up small companies and expanding their own offerings. The latest is that, rather than build up a desktop search offering, they’ve gone out and bought Tukaroo, a provider of desktop search tools. It will be interesting to see if AskJeeves starts to get more attention, or if they remain quietly in the background.
