Consumer Notebook just launched their API at PyCon. The Consumer Notebook site allows users take products and add them to lists and grids. Lists, as you’d expect, allow you to group common products. For example, gift ideas for friends, or books you’d like to buy. Grids provide a way to rank and compare a set of similar products. Perfect for planning your next cell phone upgrade, or deciding which trampoline best fits your lifestyle.
Consumer Notebook [is a] product comparison site that combines the best features of Open Comparison, Yelp, Consumer Reports, and Pinterest.
The API is REST based, and provides data in JSON format. Currently the documentation only references read access to the principle resources: Users, Products, Lists, and Grids (a comparison of products).
Social networking news site Mashable and Yahoo! Search have extended the deadline for the BOSS Mashable Challenge. This contest, now running through October 5th, will award prizes to developers who create the best mashups with the Yahoo BOSS API. As many readers will recall from our earlier coverage on BOSS, the BOSS (Build Your Own Search Service) platform lets developers build their own full-blown custom search applications on Yahoo’s index of the Internet, the same infrastructure that underlies Yahoo Search.
