Most mashups try to solve a complex problem in an innovative way, and therefore save us all time. However, sometimes a mashup solves a very simple problem in an interesting way.

There are many ways for websites to tap into online social networking services to allow their users to connect with each other. Now, for publishers who want to add social network functions to already existing websites, Yahoo! has announced their new Updates API, a web service that provides permission-based access to the actions of any user with a Yahoo! account. As part of Yahoo!'s Open Strategy (Y!OS), this API essentially allows developers to treat the Yahoo! network as a social networking platform (for more on Y!OS see our coverage of the initial Y!OS announcement and their YQL launch).
No-one likes a spammer, so 'high fives' for the development of more spam-obliterating solutions. Be it blogs, wikis, guestbooks or discussion boards, all have been the victims of spammers' endeavors to increase their search engine ranking. Comments are automatically posted in their dozens on multiple sites, and the process of manually deleting each of these is becoming increasingly tiresome. Comment SPAM Wiper (CSW) and it's SpamWipe API are designed to automatically protect a site from spam comments, posts, track-backs, ping-backs and the like. Hooray!
