Ask X: Ask.com goes 2.0

06Feb07

You know, it seems like it’s been a long time since I’ve seen Jeeves. AskJeeves was my favorite search engine, but no more. They axed Jeeves and moved on to Ask.com, and now (*2001: A Space Oddysey theme music*) Ask X!

Ask X is the needed, and eventual, Web 2.0 update to all good search engines. A shiney red-to-silver gradient greets you in the background, with the Ask.com logo and search bar in their familiar places. The logo has a reflection, though, and it links, strangely enough, to this Flickr page. Looks like the employees had a little fun here…

  1. I just came across your post on ask blog search. thanks for picking up on the logo thing – we had some fun with that! let me know if there’s anything you really want to see more of with AskX, because we haven’t finished there ;)

  2. I’d like to see an infinite scrollbar in the search, so you don’t have to move to the next page. I liked using it on Windows Live, but they removed it for the final release.
    And maybe something like Google X on the homepage (http://www.theplaceforitall.com/googlex/)
