Dear all:

BestBuy.com has just started to serve a complete RDF/XML dump of their
products and price information to the Web of Linked Data, using the
GoodRelations vocabulary for e-commerce. The data dump is updated on a
daily basis and contains detailed descriptions for roughly 450,000
individual items. With about 60 triples per item, this totals to about
27 million RDF triples.

a) Software:

b) "Hardgoods":

c) Movies:

d) Games:

Other than many existing large RDF transcripts, the data very dynamic,
holding the daily prices for all items.
According to Wikipedia, BestBuy.com is the largest specialty retailer of
consumer electronics in the United States accounting for 19% of the market.

It is likely the first Fortune 500 company to start publishing offer
details on the Web of Linked Data.

Congratulations to Jay Myers from BestBuy.com for this excellent

their support,
