Ask Jeeves to Purchase Bloglines?

Google purchased Blogger, and now the rumor, according to this
InfoWorld article
,
is that Ask Jeeves is going to purchase Bloglines. Although I don’t use it on a
regular basis, I really like Bloglines (I use a local aggregator instead). I haven’t
used or even seen Ask Jeeves in years. In fact, I’d completely forgotten about
that silly little butler until today. A cursory glance this morning suggests
that Ask Jeeves has refactored their search experience to be as much like Google’s
as possible, just like everyone else out there.

Personally, it doesn’t seem like a fantastic fit to me, but business is business.
