Chris Pendleton,Virtual Earth Evangelist, lets us know that Ask.com is now using Virtual Earth as their mapping platform. In this they are following portal sites as YellowPages.com, Superpages.com, and WhitePages.com.
Ask.com has sites in the UK, US, Japan, Spain, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. I’ve only seen Virtual Earth integration on the US one, but many of the others are still in Beta. I’m sure they’ll follow suit. Something else I’ve noticed is that all of their beta sites link to a page with all Ask.com sites (International) and those that are final do not, what’s up with that?
