With Ask Jeeves' iteration, users can narrow searches by document types and sort results by a variety of parameters. They can define how much of the computer the tool should index, as well as the speed at which they want it indexed.

I have yet to be impressed by any of their "innovations"...
I'm impressed that their results are arguably better than Googles these days. I'm impressed that they have a better grasp of local search than Google.
Ask is one of the more innovative search engines around. They have an extremely intelligent team operating the company. They could be a sleeper to come up and steal some market in a few years.
The worst part about the sponsored ads is the broad matching for very specific 3,4, 5+ word search phrases that bring up very general amazon, ebay, etc sponsored ads. This is very discouraging for anyone conducting deep searches. If nothing else, they should eliminate the ads or move them over to the side for 3+ word search phrases.
