Ask Jeeves buys Bloglines?

The news is that Ask Jeeves has bought Bloglines. I just hope it doesn’t become yet another good service that is bought by a big company and then goes downhill

Update : Russell Beattie echoes my sentiments as well.

Update : It’s official! : Excerpt: "We want to assure you that the Bloglines service will continue to grow and thrive. Like other companies in the Ask Jeeves portfolio, we will operate as a standalone, separate service — the Bloglines name will remain, as will our URL, We will support our current features and services, so please continue to log in to Bloglines to search, subscribe, publish and share RSS news feeds and blogs. All users will continue to be governed by the Terms of Service you agreed to when you registered for Bloglines."



  1. Hmm..not as if Y! hasn’t gone shopping before. And yes – I have no right to talk about this with my links to MS :)

  2. Sriram: The hit-to-miss ratio of such things is very low… that worries me. I like [Bloglines too much][].
