They've turned every MySpace profile URL into an OpenID, and they're 
also demoing the new Popup UI mode that will be formally standardized in 
the forthcoming OpenID UI Extension.

On the OAuth side of things, they're supporting the OpenID OAuth hybrid 
Extension, which allows users to simultaneously sign into an RP with 
their OpenID and authorize API access via OAuth.

Sounds pretty good to me!
