Today in APIs: New York Times, Google Shopping and 7 New APIs

The New York Times is giving developers access to data that is even more real-time from its New York Times Campaign Finance API. Google added an API console for its Google Shopping Content API to provide easy access to error codes. Plus: a German hackathon with a twist, Google App Engine updates and 7 new APIs.

Google Base Axed in Favor of New Shopping APIs

The database that tried to be everything to everyone is being replaced by more specific tools. The Google Base API, launched in 2005, has been deprecated. In its place, Google suggests using its new Google Shopping Search API for finding products and Shopping Content API for merchants to add products. The new APIs will help Google focus on the most common uses of Google Base. However, the change means that developers will have to update code and that some non-shopping applications will be left without a replacement.
