No doubt looking to cash in on the rise of the upcoming Google IPO. Smart to do if they need it or not.

They had a whole heap of money in the bank which is what they went shopping for Interactive group with.

So I wonder if they are putting some money away for further aquistions?

That makes sense if people only read the headlines of the news. (So, you might be right.) AJ is not G. AJ depends on G for much of their $ from G.

AJ has a very good search product. I think it is the best search engine going. (Try it for a week and see.) But, the firm's business plan is a mess.

Ask Jeeves is a classic "great technology, no business application" case study.
