The Ask Jeeves Blog has news about AJ's new gift finder. It's powered by another IAC/InterActive property, Gifts.com. Yes, it's IAC/Jeeves synergy.
The new gift finder can be accessed via this interface or by a Smart Answer on web results pages if the search query suggests the searcher is looking for this type of info. For example: a search for "birthday gifts" shows a Smart Answers box at the top of the results page. From here, simply click and focus your search to identify specific items by price, recipient, or interest. Here's another example, this time a search for anniversary gifts. Jeeves continues to offer a product/shopping search tool in conjunction with PriceGrabber. Btw, Smart Answers with direct links into the AJ product search database are also available for specific products and product categories. Here's an example.
