Gibt Ask Teoma auf?

Ask ist eine Suchmaschine, die es bei mir nicht nur theoretisch zur Google-Alternative gebracht hat. Besonders die Blogsuche finde ich äußerst gelungen. Umso ärgerlicher ist nun dieses Gerücht:

Ask is rumored to be considering switching to Google for search and subsequently downsizing its engineering team.

According to Silicon Alley Insider, Ask may abandon or selling its Teoma search engine in favor of using Google for its search results. Teoma has powered Ask since it was acquired in September 2001. The decision will result in “bad news for Ask Engineers.”
