An interesting article on Techcrunch today about an A/B test by Yahoo on a website's Registration page:

Specifically, he wanted to know if this style of form actually encourages more people to sign up than the usual ... to do some A/B testing and, whaddya know?, it turns out the conversational fill-in-the-blanks form increased conversion by 25-40%.

I saw that article as well. It's surprising that the non-traditional form worked that much better.
