Great move by Ask Jeeves, in my opinion. Its just too bad they can't keep a secret. Everyone was bussing about the rumored purchase of bloglines by ask jeeves a few days before they officially announced it.

Here is a nice quote from the announcement:

"Bloglines is not only a market leader in feed aggregation and blog search, but it is truly one of the most useful and addictive services on the entire Web. We are excited about providing Bloglines with the resources to grow its service and help it reach a broader audience," said Jim Lanzone, Ask Jeeves' senior vice president of search properties. "Bloglines is a natural fit for our multi-brand portfolio, as we extend our information retrieval services to encompass the rapidly growing amount of dynamic content and information available in the blogosphere."

I think, I might, switch from MyYahoo to Bloglines, it seems to be more popular based on my stats. I know one can not make judgments based on one site's rss feed. But its worth a try.

I left out the official word from the new Ask Jeeves Blog.
