Speaking of DupliVation

Google Checkout API - O'Reilly XML Blog

Google Inc. revealed the launch of Google Checkout, a checkout process that makes online shopping faster, more convenient and more secure for Google users. It offers an easy and trusted checkout option that enables shoppers to purchase from participating stores with a single Google login. Bypassing their traditional beta releases(years in beta stage) this time Google came up with fully functional and tested version because consumers would be unwilling to trust their bank accounts and credit cards to a beta version. It will serve as a centralized authorization service for customer purchases, promising the transaction security with industry-standard SSL technology.

Hmmm... I guess when you run out of innovative ideas, just do the next best thing...
