It’s not a case of where’s Waldo, but a case of where’s Jeeves. The familiar butler Jeeves has disappeared from the Ask Jeeves website. In fact the website is being redirected to Ask.com. Ask.com is the new Ask Jeeves.

According to the spokesmen for Jeeves, the change is an attempt to upgrade the image of the search engine. Market research determined the P.J. Wodehouse character, Jeeves, sent a subtle message that the website/search engine was out of date. So everything old is new again!

Although I didn’t read anything about Ask Jeeves for Kids, I assume website will change as well. However as of 9:00, September 29, Ask Jeeves for Kids has not changed.
