Page 1 of 1
Those who have always wanted their own butler can get their wish, virtually, as search engine Ask Jeeves Inc. Thursday debuted a customized service called Personal Jeeves.
Personal Jeeves as a platform that provides targeted information and customized services to consumers based on their needs and interests. Features include a daily answer, which provides customized national and world news, including breaking political, business and sports stories. Also available are personalized stock quotes, individual sports scores, local weather conditions and a daily horoscope.
Personal Jeeves is the first in a series of butler services that Ask Jeeves (ASKJ) plans to offer on Ask.com. One possibility that caught a lot of media attention earlier this week is an adult-themed search engine. The company has registered the domain names www.asksex.com and www.askadult.com, though no solid plans have been announced.
