    Don't worry. As long as we don't tell them about Advanced Google Searches, our jobs are safe. ;)

    Next year it won't be "ask tech support" it will be "ask Siri"....

    Funny, years ago it was Toms root boot, then it was bootable knoppix, now it's the iPad and google.

    But Alta Vista was first of all web crawlers, or at least the first to become popular. Yahoo existed, but because web sites were added manually it was far more limited (though at times that was a good thing.)

    BTW, Ask Jeeves became just Ask.com, the butler no longer does it. ;)
