Rails' new seamless integration with Amazon DynamoDB & S3 (daniellobato.me)

A nice, instructive article to those rubyists who may be unfamiliar with aws-sdk. Does anyone else think the title here may be a bit sensational/click-grabbing?

I mean it lead me to think it was some new engine or active model plugin. Alas, this is just a how-to for the aws-sdk gem.

Once again, helpful article overview of the aws-sdk, just not quite "Rails new seamless integration"

True, I myself believe I chose the title wrong but I only realized after this comment. I met the main developer who created the Ruby wrapper for aws-sdk a few days ago and I was really surprised how it works so similar to ActiveRecord that I thought that this was new. The code is on github and I didn't find any similar overview of the aws-sdk for Ruby on Rails, so I thought this might be helpful.

While it's not Rails, one of my favorite DynamoDB articles was Twitter Streaming with EventMachine and DynamoDB (http://arfon.org/twitter-streaming-with-eventmachine-and-dyn...). I see one huge strength of DynamoDB is its flexibility for analytics drools

I'm not sure, but from reading the article this feels more like AWS-SDK's seamless integration with Rails rather than Rails' seamless integration with DynamoDB & S3. Please correct me if I misunderstood.
