In the UK there has been a silent video advert asking if it is sensible for the vast majority of searches to be made using one search engine? (Google)
And asking shouldn't you be searching with Ask, instead?
I stopped using Ask and started using Google some years ago because I found that Google provided a better service. And in my opinion it still does.
How sad that instead of promoting itself in a positive way, Ask has to stoop to running a 'pity party' advert!
