Difference Between REST and RESTful ?

Representational state transfer (REST) is a style of software architecture. REST is an “architectural style” that basically exploits the existing technology and protocols of the Web.

RESTful is typically used to refer to web services implementing such an architecture.

Google Reader API / Facebook API / Twitter API are good examples of the RESTful service.
