From today's WSJ:

Ask Jeeves Inc. plans to announce Wednesday that it has acquired the assets of Tukaroo Inc., a closely-held San Jose, Calif. startup developing specialized search software....

The acquisition is significant because it gives Ask Jeeves technology to allow consumers to quickly search for e-mails and files on their computers' hard drives.

For WSJ you need to sign up to view the article, but there is a mention of it on their site.

You can try this, too. [news.google.com...]

A powerful feature found in Tukaroo software is called Smart-Ads(TM). Using Smart-Ads partners allow their users to learn about and shop for products and services. Users are offered non-intrusive but relevant content and advertising that they actually need and want.

Interesting how their entire site seems to either be down - or Ask took it down..

They probably just folded it into their search results, causing the site to naturally disappear.
