// regular function
diffbot.article({uri: 'http://techcrunch.com/2011/09/07/nintendo-gets-sued-over-the-wii/'}, function(err, response) {
  console.log(response.title);
  console.log(response.text);

    console.log(JSON.stringify(response.media));

// and a dash of cayenne... some addins
diffbot.article({uri: 'http://www.vanityfair.com/business/features/2011/04/jack-dorsey-201104', html: true, comments: true, stats: true}, function(err, response) {

  console.log(response.html);
});

// maybe try the frontpage api too
diffbot.frontpage({uri: 'http://prettyspace.tumblr.com/'}, function(err, response) {
  // the frontpage api is weird right now
  // the json return isn't really json...
  // it looks like xml converted to json
  // need to incorporate an xml parser to this
});
