The silly NYT is still talking about "Jeeves". I would be on the phone immediately if I worked for Ask.
|Kevin Johnson, the head of the Microsoft division that includes Windows and Internet services, said Mr. Berkowitz would be a senior vice president, succeeding David Cole, who is going on leave in May. |
Mr. Berkowitz, however, will have more limited responsibilities than Mr. Cole had. He will run marketing, sales and business development for MSN and the new Windows Live brand, which is meant to incorporate Microsoft's mail, instant message and search services. He will not oversee product development.
With MSN Search actually losing market share, Live is their best shot at some competitive magic, IMO. This will be fun to watch,

It would be interesting to see if MS will gain because of him

Ask remains a distant but still alive search engine in regards to crawls and referals from their engine. To me they are the Opera of search engines (in at least the shares aspect).

Apparently ask.com is in 5th place with 5.9% of the search market, and are hoping to move into 4th place, which is currently held by AOL(Google) behind MSN (3rd).

Its good that MS is concentrating on their arena. Lets see what does Mr Steve Berkowitz do .. either unique or something different.
