At the risk of offending some - I think askjeeves is for women and those less technically inclined.
I don't know if this is true, but that is my overall impression based on my intuition and experience.
I think that askjeeves could be a beneficial way for some to reach their target audiences. I think this is lost when packaged as teoma.
That is what I wanted to hear. An ask jeeves user is more likely to ... .... ...
Seems like all Paul wanted to do was compete with google. That is going to be a hard battle to win.

>>I think askjeeves is for women and those less technically inclined.
I think that is it's user base and that is who it is being pitched to.
OTOH, Teoma is very much designed to go head to head with Google and appeal to Googles traditionally more tech savvy audience.
Same basic product, but different packaging.

Chris you seem to understand:
58% are female [webmasterworld.com]

AJ has been assummed certainly here, and in other places to appeal to female's as a more approachable search medium.
Regarding teoma going for Google, certainly from SE competition, until overture become concrete with their plans for fast, G's only possible competitior at the moment, its teoma's future! Whether its feasible - they will have to start pulling rabbits out of hats to achieve anything close. But if they can get a reasonable crawl/update cycle going, reasonable free inclusion times, then it will certainly enthuise the techies, which will drip feed down to joe blogg webuser over time. Don't get me wrong the king sits on the moon at the moment, and reaching their is going to take a heck of alot of everything for T to knock them off.

Thanks vita - I was looking for something like that - those stats also show a whopping 0.4% of searches are for "mature" subject matter. I find that number to be a little on the low side...
They don't seem to have a problem with adult owning askadult and asks*x.

the demographic here is different from the US.
So, jeevesUS are for girls? and JeevesUK are for men?
now that JeevesUS and JeeveUK are together, will they conceive a child? it's how my logical mind works...don't ask how I arrived to that question. :)

|I don't know if anyone else has noticed this. |
But I've gotten about 1,000 more hits from Teoma than from Google since last month; and Teoma is still in getting pages at the rate of 5-6 per minute.
A recent peek at the logfiles showed Teoma going way deeper than imagined. 1 Gig of "friendly" dynamic content.
