Square continued its move beyond payments into ecommerce in general by announcing its Orders API. The Orders API allows developers to build solutions that allow customers to place orders online, in-person, and in-app. Orders can be sent to other Square products or centralized POS systems.
The Federal National Mortgage Association, or Fannie Mae, a government-sponsored enterprise and key player in the secondary mortgage market, is currently beta testing an API platform that it says will “level the playing field” for lenders in the multi-trillion dollar market for mortgages.
Quandl Founder Tammer Kamel wants to create a new Wikipedia for Numeric Data. Quandl has built a sort of "universal data parser" which has thus far parsed about 2.8 million datasets without anything from any data publisher. As long as they spit out data somehow (excel, text file, blog post, xml, api, etc) the "Q-bot" can slurp it up. The result is quandl.com as sort of "search engine" for numerical data. Quandl's bot returns data in a totally standard format. The idea with Quandl is that you can find data fast, and it is ready to use.
