Every single public message on Google Buzz, the content-sharing platform from the search giant, is now available to any developer.

Accessing the "firehose" is about the same any other API, which makes it an easy way to get a lot of content quickly.
Today OnStar, a GM company focused on in-car communication and security, announced what it calls an API. Though not yet released, nor totally open and perhaps not even an API, the move is certainly part of "car as a platform." Building apps for cars is a movement that hasn't seen much progress since Ford's announcement two years ago.

Planning a trip, whether just down the road or into the next city, normally revolves around the distance of the desired location. It's common practice to search for the distance between two points on a map, then take a rough guess as to how long it will actually take to get there. But we all know that distance isn't the only factor to consider. What about mode of transport, peak traffic hours or alternate routes?
