AOL has a slew of new beta products all powered by Dojo. The portal piece differs from iGoogle and the like by not using iframes. At first I was surprised at this (security concerns), but then you see that the portlets are fairly locked down.

Mgnet is an interesting product that helps you find content that suits you. First you click on images that show off categories (e.g. soccer, gadgets, politics), and then you are taken to entries from blog feeds that you thumb up and down. It is certainly a new way to go about finding content, and there are nice examples of Dojo usage throughout.

The site appears to currently be powered by 0.4.3 so it will be interesting to see it when it boots up to 0.9+.
