Examples of UI fading in and out over content?

I'm a bit curious about the emergence of a pattern in recent years.

In embedded Flash movie players it has become pretty common to see
player controls (play, ff, rw, etc.) fade out after some time of
inactivity or mouse out, and fade back in on action, mousein, etc.
We can also see this when you use a quicktime player in full screen

The benefits of creating a seamless way to shift focus are obvious.

I was wondering if anyone could add a few more examples of when a UI
changes opacity to shift focus from control to consume? Or for any
other reason? Other examples than web?

People, I invite you to make up your own minds about the products you use

Hmm, Ok... I admit I should have added some thought on GTalk on it,
we're behind an Institute firewall and it wasnt connecting at times
so couldnt form an informed opinion on it . yet the mail was to
initiate a download of an alternate way of doing something which most
of us do daily, so all the people are on the same plan and can
Discuss. I am a silent reader of the list most of the time and "feed"
on what people have to say.

Whiteboard/Web-Conferencing Software?

I work as an Interaction Designer for Business Objects in Vancouver and I am
in need of Whiteboard/Web-Conferencing software so that our team here can
effectively communicate with the other half of the team in Paris. We want
to be able to review screenshots, Flash, and PowerPoint presentations while
making notes on an upper transparent layer. We don't necessarily need
application sharing, simply the ability to communicate suggestions. We've
tried Microsoft's, Live Meeting, as we have pre-existing accounts, but it
doesn't seem to have the features we are looking for.
