Ask Jeeves buys Bloglines
AskJeeves has just purchased Bloglines in order to build a specialized blog search engine for its other services. They do plan to keep Bloglines as a separate service as well. I don't know whether this means that blog postings will be integrated into AskJeeves searches or if they will be searched as a separate tool. Apparently Google already owned the parent company of Blogger, so I guess this is not the start of a new trend.
