In den vergangenen Tagen kursierte es durch die Blogosphäre, heute wurde es offiziell bestätigt:Ask Jeeves has acquired Bloglines.
Im offiziellen Statement von Bloglines heißt es dazu:
We view this as a huge step forward for Bloglines, and a chance to achieve our mission of making RSS news reading and blogging a part of everyone’s internet experience.[…]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 remain, as will our URL, www.bloglines.com. We will support our current 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 you agreed to when you registered for Bloglines.
