Jeremy Zawodny wants to see RSS-emitting APIs for every widget out there. Ding!

That's how my AmzWish widget (you can see an example on my blog or on the AmzWish generator page) was created: simply making calls to AmazonOps exposed by RSSBus (which outputs RSS feeds). Basically AmzWish is just some html mixed in with an RSS feed. You can make your own or view the source here.

The same thing could easily be done for Yahoo! Shopping - maybe I should put together some operations for the RSSBus yahooOps connector, though I'm dont think (but I'm not sure) Yahoo's wishlist feature is exposed through their Shopping API. I know that their existing Yahoo Shopping feeds are very limited - though I predict that will change in the not-too-distant future.
