We want to assure you that the Bloglines service will continue to grow
and thrive. Like other companies in the Ask Jeeves portfolio, we will
operate as a standalone, separate service -- the Bloglines name will

features and services, so please continue to log in to Bloglines to
search, subscribe, publish and share RSS news feeds and blogs. All users
will continue to be governed by the Terms of Service

We have a great roadmap on how to integrate some of the many innovative
technologies of Ask Jeeves, including its Teoma algorithmic search
