Some good stuff queued up:

  • Kyle Hayes has a new version of his Flash-powered AmazonRank widget. The new version displays product details when clicked, and can also jump to the Amazon detail page for the product. Full source code is available here.
  • The Cruxy Player for Second Life is a portable giveaway for use at live and recorded music events. Supports a variety of music and playlist formats, easily customized, skinned, and embedded, available for free, supports real-world purchases, and it streams data directly out of Amazon S3.
  • While on the topic of Second Life, Eric Rice recently rolled out an Amazon-powered store on Pontiac’s Motorati Island.
  • BrowsegoodsBrowseGoods (currently in beta) is a very nice visual Amazon catalog browser. The beta provides access to Amazon’s shoes, sports, toys, and watches categories. Using the site you can start at the category level and then zoom in until you can see and select from individual items.
