Mashups using the same API (2576)
Stannp.com is a free app that allows users to quickly and easily create their own custom-made postcards. The company provides the Stannp API that allows developers to integrate this tool into other applications. By snapping a picture or using an existing image, the user has the option to customize the image with fun effects and add the finished product to their Facebook wall, email it to a friend or have it turned into a real postcard to be posted the same day.
What does a tool maker do when his tool breaks? He builds a new tool to patch the broken one. At least that is what David Beckemeyer (Mr Blog) did when his tweeting garage door opener was threatened by the approaching OAuthpocalypse. This date with destiny for all Twitter programmers is the planned June 30th cutoff of basic authentication. At that point all Twitter apps must communicate with the API through OAuth authentication instead of the much less complicated user name/password form of HTTP Authentication. There are many good reasons for this change, which have been repeated endlessly on the Twitter developer forum, but in practice it is a lot of added complexity, more complexity than David wanted to build into his little, simple garage door device.
While Google leads the way in web search and Yahoo leads the way in answers, many upstart services are attempting to help you make decisions by giving you smarter answers to your questions. Microsoft has billed its new search offering Bing as both a "decision engine" and an "answer engine." Now there's Hunch, a new start-up founded by Flickr's Caterina Fake, which also aims to be a decision engine, but using a very different model. By first asking the user questions ranging from food preferences to pet peeves, Hunch tries to provide answers to questions that best match the user's interests based on crowdsourced data collected from other users.
