For me, the natural results have probably been as bad or worse as they have been for finding things.
However, the Adwords results seem to have improved in terms of relevance. maybe it is because so many legitimate sites are finding it so hard to compete in the organic results that they are now forced to us Adwords to get on page 1.
I try to just copy and paste the displayed URL from adwords into the browser so that I don't cost the advertiser anything. (If you are an adwords advertiser, my advice is to try to make your display URL resolve to the actual page, whether through a 301 or whatever.)
Most of the ehow articles I see are irrelevant to my queries. The "Ask Me" sites with compiled answers are even more worthless, and to be honest, seem to be ranking just as well as before Panda. At least with ehow you can scroll right down past the article (and their adsense ads) and sometimes they will list good resources to check out - hey, they OFTEN list my pages in the resources section, so at least ehow has got that part right ;-)
