comment Getting and maintaining data from a large number of sources on the web
@codingoutloud Well, pulling all the lists in, parsing them and then recomposing a central list seems like a lot of effort if only one price has changed in a given lapse of time. I'm thinking through the possible scenarios and how they could be best addressed.

comment Why are interfaces useful?
Interfaces are already useful in the theoretical sense of the word (think UML). Along the line of what arnaud says it would not be possible to interact with a class if they didn't exist. Basically class = implementation + interface. The interfaces in C# are simply a way of separating the buttons from the electronics of a remote control.
