I was wondering if anyone had succesfully implemented, or knew how to even begin, the usage of Yahoo Shopping or Amazon WebServices APIs to use in lieu of Magento’s built in product reviews.  Seems to me that we would need to parse the XML that the service submits and display on the product view pages instead.

Yahoo’s API: http://developer.yahoo.com/shopping/V2/catalogListing.html
example of XML: http://shopping.yahooapis.com/ShoppingService/v2/CatalogListing?appid=YahooDemo&catalogid;=1991675140&getlisting;=0&getreview;=1&reviewstart;=1&reviewresults;=20

Amazon Webservices: http://aws.amazon.com/
example of XML: http://developer.amazonwebservices.com/connect/entry.jspa?externalID=524&categoryID;=19
some xml to php info: http://developer.amazonwebservices.com/connect/entry.jspa?externalID=636

I would like to see this feature if it came available. 

The only issue I could see is that you would need to sync up your products or product id’s with those in Amazon otherwise you could pull the wrong reviews or comments for the wrong product.
