Amazon has been fiddling with XML and its API for a while, but finally got around to releasing the “Amazon.com Web Services”
The Google API like interface has already spawned cool new interfaces for Amazon.com – like Amazon Light, which I have to admit – might very well become my favorite access to Amazon.com.

I’m currently playing around with a flash frontend for Amazon. This is still in a very early stage: http://www.quasimondo.com/amazonSearch.html
Very cool, looking forward to seeing the implementation evolve :-)
Here are some older ones. Have to redo them both – ie MXify them:
– Done in Flash 5, but when I get a chance I’ll upgrade it to MX with some major improvements.
Also in Flash 5 – But ah whenever I get some actual free time I’ll upgrade it as well.
Anyways some fun stuff and so many possibilities.
and a interesting post.
I was reading this:
I think it could drive developers into the webservices!
You can see a full implementation of the REST (XML-RPC API) interface of Amazon Web Services, online in this shop:
Created with PHP, Amazon Webservices version 2 and using a caching layer. Features search, categories search (try searching for “digital camera” in the camera shop), 3-4 level deep categories listings, product features, reviews, chatting, and also product features and prices comparisons
Director of the simplest shop
How do you use Amazon Light to create content for your site?
