Perhaps I’m too tired to see it, but this frickin’ tit on a boar hog at Forbes certainly knows how to produce a 600 word article that says nothing:

BURLINGAME, CALIF. – E-mails have been flying back and forth for 35 years, but never have changes to the most popular e-mail applications been more wide-reaching than those now moving to the front burner.

Yahoo! (nasdaq: YHOO – news – people ), Microsoft (nasdaq: MSFT – news – people ), Google (nasdaq: GOOG – news – people ) and Time Warner’s (nyse: TWX – news – people ) AOL all are retooling their Web-based e-mail systems to take advantage of new technologies that will result in radically different–and advanced–user experiences.

As I said, I’m tired, and I may be missing it. But this article seems to say nothing about just what these “radically different–and advanced–user experiences” might be. And a quick Google news search doesn’t seem to offer any alternative source currently. But I’m sure that, by afternoon, there will be plenty. I’ll update then.

Or perhaps some of our readers have been in on the beta testing, and can fill us in?
