Google Search API Vanishment - Yahoo to the RescueApparently, Google has stopped supporting its SOAP-based web search API, replacing it with an AJAX thingy. For the moment, they're keeping the service running, but they may not in the future. This is a shame, as my FindMeATune thing is dependent on it, and the AJAX thing won't do as a replacement.
Google, as shown by its recent killing of Google Answers, likes to cover up its failures; few people ever used the search API except as a SOAP programming example.
Fortunately, Yahoo has a publicly accessible search API. It allows five times as many searches per day as does the Google one, and even better, it's REST-based! (The Google one uses SOAP, which is, of course, horrible beyond belief). So I will probably move to that shortly.
