Wow, that went unnoticed for a long while. The new (paid) API was running at least a month ago, and announced well before that. We had until December 1 to switch all of our apps over to the new API from the AWIS beta. I gotta give Alexamazon some love here - they're offering a lot of features, the price is far below what we used to pay for the Alexa data, and it has the same security as other paid web services offered by Amazon.
