how to position a new "beta" feature -- examples?

I imagine this might be a tough one, but you IxDAers never fail me, so
here goes.

Can anyone think of any sites that are currently offering two versions
of a particular *feature*, classic and beta?

To be clear, I'm NOT looking for:
- brand new sites that are still in beta testing mode
- existing sites that have an entire beta replacement site to try out
(e.g. Gmail's Older Version / Newer Version)

Instead I'm looking for sites that have, say, two different searches
available - their old search, and a new search that they're testing.

Gratuitous use of AJAX

Check out HiDefDVD.com (from
The article has some good info on when to/ not to use AJAX (wrt interaction
models). I'm not an expert on this, but I'm starting to have to deal with
this on a regular basis.

Visual aspects of interaction design -combative, dismissive, and hostile

Ok, I'll bit.
In the rsparch vs. hga competition. ;)
I didn't like RSParch either as a site or visually. I felt very silly trying
to figure out how to use it.
The HGA site however I liked much better. I think it had one major flaw
though in that some of the transitions felt unnecessarily slow, though I did
like what they led to. The basic structure was good and I never really felt
all that lost. OH! And it was clean and beautful. I doubt this was done by
an inhouse team.

See-through mobile with multi-touch on the back

Video showing simulated see-through screen for multi-touch from the back!


They call it Lucid Touch and envision this used for two-handed mobile
devices. If you are interested in touch screens and have not seen it, its a
must see.

Looking for Great Registration/Purchase Paths

Hi, I am working on creating a streamlined, potentially integrated registration/purchase process for an online subscription product. Does anyone have any recommendations on site with clean, simple purchase paths ala Netflix?

Thanks in advance for the help.
