Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Internet search outfit Ask Jeeves Inc has acquired US-based desktop search outfit Tukaroo. Financial details were not disclosed.

Ask Jeeves is keen to wrap Tukaroo's technology with its own to enable Net users to search their PCs for all their bibs and bobs.

For, as computers get stuffed to the gunnels with all sorts of files, Ask Jeeves reckons punters need a way to find a way to navigate through all their stuff.

Said Ask Jeeves chief exec Steve Berkowitz: "We expect that Tukaroo's desktop search and information management capabilities will enable Ask Jeeves to deliver a seamless, end-to-end search experience across the desktop and the Internet."

Two days ago Ask Jeeves asked the US financial authorities for the green light to sell up to $400m (£220m) of its stock and other securities to fund further business developments. ®
