Ask adds RSS smart answers RSS smart answers

Search engine now displays the last three feed items at the top of the search result page for strong title matches. A search for “BoingBoing” displays the popular blog’s last three posts complete with a link to the individual item, a 98-character summary, and the publication date.

There are a few bits of polish missing from the implementation. I’d like to be able to directly access the source feed and subscribe right away. It would also be cool if every feed title from my subscription list was part of my own personal smart answers, increasing the personal relevancy of the Ask suite.
