CityGrid Media, the company behind local mainstay CitySearch, has announced a new version of its CityGrid API. The service offers developers new access to content, as well as new ways to monetize whatever integrations they might build. The new API provides features now synonymous with local services, such as business listings and coupons. And CityGrid is sharing revenues with developers.
Based on a filing with the FTC, Robert Scoble is reporting that Apple bought Siri and its voice-driven personal assistant. The iPhone app, which we covered in February, uses over 35 APIs to find the exact data the user seeks. With a price rumored at $200M, this is by far the most paid for a mashup.
