wuzziwug says:Wow, that's really similar to what I did with that API.
Some tips-- there are a couple terms that the ClearForest API grabs that are non news-relevant, like "printable," "email," etc.
I removed those during processing for my app.
Great job though, I was working on the picture scaling too, and I like how you arranged them.

Good luck in the contest. Looking forward to the results.

Picture scaling was a good challenge, I found a solution and went ahead and made it available to everyone here:
I just set the thumbnail size to the same size as the font for the thing I am depicting.

Paul says:FYI: I added a "related searches" at the bottom of item details pages. This way you can see other searches that would find the item you are viewing.
Also, the screen shot of this website it old... may want to update that.
