Amazon.com Launches Web Services

Amazon, today launched web services targeting website owners and developers. Developers will now be able to create applications which will allow them to search and display products from Amazon's catalog. Also, another newly exposed web service will allow them to add Amazon.com products to shopping carts, wish lists, and registries from third party locations. The whole thing is free. You just need to download the development kit which has quite some examples and then you will need to register yourself with them to get the developer's token just like the key used with Google API. It wouldn't have hurt if the toolkit had few .Net and Visual Basic/ASP samples.
