Mashups using the same API (2)
If Yahoo shut down its mapping APIs, would anyone notice? Apparently not, as there's been little written about the company's recent announcement that makes official what we've all seen for some time: Yahoo will not be a player in Maps, instead relying on its partner, Nokia. As of September 13, the Yahoo Maps API will go away. The company is already suggesting developers migrate to Nokia's Ovi Maps API.
Uberblic is another instance of what may become a trend in the world with thousands of APIs: the Meta-API. The Uberblic Doppleganger API is currently in beta, but it is quite ambitious in that it looks to position itself as a API cross-reference or mutli-plexer. Submit an ID from one API to the Doppleganger, get 4-5 IDs for matching content from other APIs.
Popular room rental service AirBNB does not yet have an official AirBNB API. But signs point to one's existence, as well as an affiliate plan in place to pay developers for reservations booked through the API. If the company sticks with the plan as written now, developers will be able to make up to 10 million API calls per day before contacting AirBNB.
