According to MSN Virtual Earth Blog, Ask.com has let go of their mapping platform and have adopted the Microsoft Virtual Earth as its new mapping platform. Ask.com has integrated MSN Live Earth into Ask Maps, Ask City (search for Businesses, Events and Movies per US City) and their Web Search including the Bird’s Eye view.

As of now, the integration of Microsoft Live Earth in Ask Maps is only available in the United States. Ask.com websites such as, Japan, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK aren't showing this integration as yet. But, the speculations are that, as all these sites are currently running Beta, the integration might take some time.
