Out of a beige windowless office in Chicago comes a product that just might revolutionize what you thought was possible on the web. X-Stream.ly is a pure play API service offering low-latency high throughput real time messaging with no server side coding required. The x-stream.ly API is a pretty competitive offering in the real time API space.
Contactology, an Email Marketing service, has announced the release of its API. The new API Version 2 has big changes that make it more developer friendly. First, it adopts the REST style over Version 1 that was based on SOAP. It also provides data as developer-preferred JSON. The changes make the API easier to use, which is good for everyone.
