Google has just released a new open source web API that allows developers to create interactive 3D applications in the browser. O3D, which runs on both Windows and Mac (and even Linux with some tweaking), is provided as a plugin that will run on most popular browsers such as Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer (more details at our Google O3D API Profile).
Canon, HP, Samsung Electronics and Xerox have announced the launch of the Mopria Alliance, a brand new non-profit membership organization that was created to promote and increase the accessibility of wireless printing from smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. The need for printing functionality to be possible from a wide range of devices has led to an increase in the number of available printing APIs. At the time of this writing, there are 45 printing APIs listed in the ProgrammableWeb API directory.
