John Musser, April 11th, 2009

What do gambling, streaming music, job listings and top ten music charts all have in common? They were some of the 30 APIs used to build this week’s 21 new mashups listed on ProgrammableWeb. Some of the less frequently or new APIs used this week include the gaming (read gambling) API from BetFair, the NOOA Weather Service API, and the new Billboard API and Best Buy Remix API.
