Innovation in web service APIs is not always technical, sometimes it's about money. Such is the case with Yahoo's announcement that later this year they will begin charging for usage of BOSS (Build your Own Search Service), their search web service for developers. Given that search revenue is typically ad-driven, and that advertising doesn't typically mesh with APIs, this has meant that search APIs have been one of the most challenging classes of APIs for providers to monetize. So it's notable to see how Yahoo has chosen to tackle this: via a 'utility' pricing model, somewhat akin to how infrastructure services like Amazon Web Services charge by usage.
The news of Yahoo's deal to use Microsoft's Bing for search at best has some standing vigil over BOSS and SearchMonkey (our profiles of the BOSS API and Yahoo Search API). At worst, many are already calling the services dead.
Ocutag, a division of Ricoh Innovations, aims to help apps deliver content to users taking photos. Their aim is to herald a new model of retail. App designers upload images and tag them with information. When users snap pics of the same thing in reality, information can be delivered through the app, such as that appearing in the graphic of the scarf below: where to buy it, details about it, local stores that carry it. What information is delivered is up to the company with the app. The company provides the Ocutag API for integration.
