In good spirit of April Fools, Ask Jeeves wrote a blog entry named The Future of Search Arrives: Introducing The Jeeves9000 (BETA) where they joke about a futuristic Jeeves robot to help you with your daily tasks. There are three videos at the site you must watch, the middle one talks about their subject specific stuff, the last one you can see Jim Lanzone from Ask Jeeves get whacked by Jeeves9000 (priceless). I started a thread on this at Search Engine Watch Forums.
But, I found last night, a Jeeves1000 for sale. And this is really no april fools joke. I found the Jeeves1000 at eBay and its currently on bid with 7 days 2 hours remaining. I am really not kidding and I even started a thread on this topic at Search Engine Watch Forums.
I left out these two videos, Intro Movie, note the "beta" on the back of the head. And Integration Movie, note Mark Fletcher (CEO of Bloglines, acquired by Ask Jeeves recently) being strangled by Jeeves9000. Too funny.
