Ask.com promotes breast cancer awareness and fund-raising

The search engine has launched a special version of its site to support the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization

Ask.com has launched a special version of its search engine site devoted to raising awareness and funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a nonprofit breast cancer organization.

Between now the end of the year, Ask.com will donate up to $0.50, up to a total of US$100,000, for every person who chooses the special Ask.com for the Cure homepage skin and answers breast-cancer related questions, the company said Monday.

People can find the Ask.com for the Cure version of the search engine by clicking on a tab in the main Ask.com site or by going directly to Ask.com/cure.

"We expect this to have a large impact," said Scott Garell, president of Ask Networks.

The initiative creates a win-win situation for all parties involved, raising funds to help find a cure for breast cancer and helping educate people about the disease. "We think everybody wins with this program," Garell said.

In addition, Ask.com, an operating business of IAC, has pledged to invest at least $1 million by the end of next year through this program and sponsorship of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure series, he said.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
