Turn Technologies recently announced an identity verification and mass payments platform through its Turn API. The identity verification platform searches more than 100 billion records across 10,000 databases in less than 10 seconds. Same day, mass payments are connected to 400 million US accounts.
A community-minded API has a politcal message for the UK's Royal Mail: open up the postal code database. ErnestMarples.com is named after the former postmaster general who apparently first oversaw the introduction of the postal code in the UK.
