Ask Jeeves Sold for $1.9 Billion

Purchased by IAC/Interactive, parent company of Expedia, Ticket Master, and Home Shopping Network. Maybe it really is 1996 all over again. (Via Daniel Bogan via AIM.)

[Update: Now the entire article has been rewritten to put the deal in the future tense: “An announcement could be made as early as today.”]
