The most popular video API is about to become more popular. As just announced by Googe's Jim Patterson on the YouTube blog, YouTube Everywhere, the YouTube API has just been upgraded with some very powerful new features.
“Is that your real name?” It's a question that we just don’t ask often enough! Fake Name Generator might like to see a little more suspicion in everyday life. The Fake Name Generator API will randomly create an identity complete with name, address, and numbers for phone, credit card, and social security. Why would you need this? Suppose you are testing a credit card processing gateway. You would need to validate and check fake numbers. Or maybe you need to test the validation of your site’s registration form.
As promised, the team at Netvibes, the very popular customizable homepage, has released the developer preview of their Universal Widget API (UWA). Widgets developed using this API work not only on Netvibes but many other widget platforms and blog systems: Google IG, Apple Dashboard, and so on.
