This past Valentine's Day, DuckDuckGo announced via Twitter that their search engine had "received over 1,000,000 direct searches yesterday for the first time ever!" A major accomplishment for a search engine that is essentially unknown. And this search engine has an API.
It hasn't been long since developers responded with fear that Yahoo's innovative search tools could go away. Now two of the smaller, but still well-loved, APIs have been given less than a month to live.
