Ever had a great business idea only to find someone else beat you to the punch?

Like the main character in Knocked up who finds that his idea for a website already is out there, have you ever done this yourself, come up with an idea that seemed like it would be great only to discover someone else did it first? For years I thought a book trading site would be a great idea, and just recently I came across bookmooch.com which basically is the exact idea I had with only a few variations, ie I thought it'd be good to be able to purchase points and that the ratio was higher then 1:1 in other words you'd have to send out 3 books to get one free type thing.
