Sometimes there's just too much interest in open data. The Greater London Authority has temporarily pulled its feed of the Underground due to "overwhelming demand." The service gave locations of every subway train in the city updating in nearly realtime.
The non-profit built for "opening America's government" has created an app to show off its Congressional data, as well as its API (our Sunlight Labs API profile). You can't get this app on the web, though, as it's available exclusively for the Android phone platform.
Amazon announced the release of the new AWS Price List API which allows AWS partners and customers to programmatically access the prices of AWS services including (but not limited to) Amazon S3, Amazon EC2, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon CloudFront, and Amazon RDS. Data is returned in JSON or CSV format.
