News: Jeeves, Where Can I Buy Some Plus-Fours?
Here’s a new way of finding what you want to buy: Ask Jeeves. Ask Jeeves started out as a place you could ask normal questions (‘How long is a piece of string?’) and get answers that closely match your question, culled from the web (‘Want to buy a G-string?’). At least that’s been my experience. Still, it’s sometimes useful. Now, its new Smart Product Search feature, Reuters reports, will help consumers find, price and compare products on the Web.
Smart Search results already cover most consumer electronics, including cameras, computers, MP3 players and video games. In coming weeks, consumers will also be able to see Smart Search results for additional categories, including home and garden, apparel and children’s products.
