So I decided it would be best to try and take down google for the hackathon.
Kidding, but I did make a product search.
Just start typing in the search box and you will get results sent back to you in <200ms (amazon is throttleing me, so more letters = more likely throttled, but I am caching results with both my server and cloudflare, so this should fix with time)
I am using foursquare to determine the areas you consider to be your home and your work, I am doing this by doing category analysis and putting all of those relevant zipcodes to home or work into arrays and finding the most common.
I am using mashery to find best buys with the top result (the one with more details below the top row) in stock, and give you the location/phone number.
ONE MORE THING, turns out that if you share a search engine with people and they use it, if you have attached affiliate codes(part of amazon's api), you make money: http://imgur.com/izXVP
That equates to ~$50 cpm
