    I have been coding on the Amazon data feed for a few days, and have automated a few things. Does anybody have any, "I wish I could...." ideas for the Amazon datafeed? I might just be motivated enough to put together a little utility package.

    Anybody interested in a brandable PDF catalog, containing your selected Amazon content?

    What makes PDF an advantage?

    I already use AWS to my own advantage in a couple of places.

    Thought maybe with a content type site you could put together a branded directory of recommended books/resources/????. The pdf file could handle links if they read it online, or ir it got printed your branding and links back to your site would be distinctly displayed.

    I built pages using Amazon's XML returns and ended up scrapping them all as the data couldn't be trusted. Something as simple as indicating that a book is new and is being sold by Amazon (and not a third party) seems to be beyond the capability of Amazon's programmers. I switched all my sites to send a simple http call to Powells.com where I can get this most basic of information. I then parse that string.

    All the prices, publishing info and customer reviews Amazon returns are just a waste of bandwidth if you can't determine if the book is new and available.

    That's my wishlist.

    I would love for Amazon to include the availability of rebates in search criteria, or even to just have rebate information available in the heavy XML that's returned.

    A proper availability flag. Their current tag is a joke. All I want is a true or false.
