We're continuing to roll out more Smart Answers at Ask.com.

Here are a few, just a few, examples.

or

and

Climate

or

Wow!! Thanks Gary!

I am glad to see Ask driving some competition here....

Is there a list of all the possible "Smart Answers" at Ask.com ??

No, there isn't one list but we will try to get one.

Many are new but others like the recipe one have been around for a while.

another example, inline imagery on web results pages was first put on the web by Ask back in April 2003.
ask.com/web?q=golden+gate+brid ...

Of course, I send new SA's to P.L. and of course I mention on ResourceShelf.com.

Here's one more (U.S. only on this one). Have friends getting married?
This SA will likely direct you to the major wedding gift registries.

Good job! I don't use Ask.com much, but I'll try to use it more.
