Really nice and clean layout. I like it more than searchmash (searchmash.com) It can be a great resource when you're researching about something.

Not just Ask X, but even the regular version of Ask does their 3-panel search results:

ask.com/web?q=muse

Though it looks like in Yahoo's case they're putting more emphasis on the other stuff (that's in the right panel on Ask) and less on the actual search results which now get squeezed into the left.

this looks kind of similar to igoogle's ability to automatically create pages based on keywords

I quite liked it, has a portal feel – looks as if someone manually crafted the page (in contrast to ad filled static page). Good to see Y! trying to innovate. So while Yang was squabbling with MS, the engineering team did do its work! :)

I like it. But I agree with Niraj that the search results are now very deemphasized. I find it interesting that they would include Google results like YouTube and Google Blog Search.

Here's a list of "modules" I've encountered:
* Wikipedia article
* Google Blog Search results
* YouTube videos
* Yahoo! Maps map
* Yahoo! News search results
* Flickr Places photos
* Yahoo! Answers questions
* MyRecipes.com recipes
* Y! Finance stock info
* Yahoo! Jobs job listings
* eBay auction listings
* Yahoo Shopping products
* HowStuffWorks.com pages

Apparently, you can have your website (if it's general purpose) signed up for this.

A more 'Googley' alternative is the Firefox extension 'Googlepedia' – which will show wikipedia articles alongside your google searches. It's quite nice :)
