Sometimes we forget what the real purpose of all this fancy technology is. And what is that? To make our real lives easier. Mashups often help with that, allowing us to do such simple things as find a good beer, our favorite music artists, where the streetcars are, or where a park is.
The third largest retailer in the world, Tesco, a grocery-and-more chain largely in the UK, will soon unveil a REST API for its online store (Tesco API profile). Developers will be able to search products, as well as get nutritional information, such as how many calories are in a serving of crisps or biscuits.
When Amazon recently implemented what it calls "efficiency guidelines" in its Amazon Product Advertising API, the online retail giant took some developers by surprise. The change was meant to limit access to sites that did not send buying customers. However, a change to your code is required to ensure that you receive the correct level of access. Those that didn't make the change were subjected to the lowest limits. For some, that meant lost revenue--both to the developer and Amazon.
