Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS(TM)) Generally Available
The Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS) is now available in general
release. Amazon SQS offers a reliable, highly scalable hosted queue for
storing messages as they travel between computers. By using Amazon SQS,
developers can simply move data between distributed application components
performing different tasks, without losing messages or requiring each
component to be always available. Amazon SQS works by exposing Amazon�s
web-scale messaging infrastructure as a web service. Any computer on the
internet can add or read messages without any installed software or special
firewall configurations. Components of applications using Amazon SQS can
run independently, and do not need to be on the same network, developed
with the same technologies, or running at the same time.

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) - Continuing Successes
Amazon S3 has continued to thrive. La Nacion, Microsoft, and SmugMug
represent the breadth of companies choosing to use the web scale storage
offered by Amazon S3. Global enterprises like Microsoft are using Amazon
S3 to dramatically reduce their storage costs without compromising scale or
reliability. On the opposite end of the spectrum, small businesses that
depend on storage such as SmugMug are using Amazon S3�s benefits of scale
and cost-efficiency that were previously only available to large companies.
Amazon continues to use Amazon S3 for its own business as well, recently
launching new digital initiatives that store and retrieve large data files
using Amazon S3.

Announcing the Alexa Site Thumbnail web service
Alexa Internet recently introduced the Alexa Site Thumbnail web service.
This web service provides developers with programmatic access to thumbnail
images for the home pages of web sites. It offers access to Alexa's large
and growing collection of images, gathered from its comprehensive web
crawl. This web service enables developers to enhance web sites, search
results, web directories, blog entries, and other web real estate with
Alexa thumbnails images. Including web site thumbnail improves user
experience by allowing end users to preview sites before clicking on the
thumbnail's associated link.
