Given the availability of these good APIs from Amazon, eBay and Shopping.com it should be no surprise that "shopping" is a popular mashup theme. As of now there are exactly 100 shopping-related mashups listed here. That's about 7% of the total. Some of the better ones include:
- iPod Radar: Helps you find iPods and accessories as well as iPod news, blogs, links, software and more. Checking it today I see it integrates Google News feeds with this week's Apple announcements.
- SecretPrices.com: Comparison shopping site with deal, rebate and coupon information. Customer reviews and product information from Amazon.com, Shopping.com and Epinions.com.
- NYC Camera Shops: If you ever had problems ordering camera supplies from a vendor in NYC, then this map might be of interest. It plots the locations, along with photos and comments, of dozens of vendors. Not always reputable ones.
- LivePlasma: A visually rich application that combines the Amazon API to show the relationship between movies, bands, actors, etc. You can go straight from interacting to making purchases.
