Ask Brands Ask France Without Jeeves

Let me start off by saying that I do not know exactly when Ask launched its French version of the engine. It might have been today, I do not see any press releases on it. But there is a brand new thread on the topic at Cre8asite forums named Ask in France where member Nadir points out the Ask logo on does not have the "Jeeves" portion in the logo. It is not only Ask France, it is on Ask España launched a few months ago and also no "Jeeves" name on について. However, "Jeeves" is written out at and all of them have the Jeeves character logo.

I wish I would have known if the Japan and Mexician versions had Jeeves written out when they launched. Anyway, it is a subtle thing to notice and it may be part of the Ask Jeeves transition to be known as just Ask.

Yes, Ask was actually launched on Dec 14th, <a href=""></a> As for the "missing" Jeeves, I do think that it's because Jeeves is an English name only, and people wouldn't have understood why a search engine is called "Ask Jeeves". I think is definitely the best way to go for their worldwide expansion.
