I keep thinking about Last.FM's radio player and it's three button "Love, Skip, Ban" control. I want to put these buttons all over the place because they look to me like the bare minimum UI to build a rating system. So how about:-
- A Firefox status bar extension to the last.fm radio that makes these buttons always available
- The three buttons on Google AdSense displays so that the publisher can express preferences for particular ads.
- Put the buttons on a TV remote and link them to Tivo.

Which then got me thinking about Amazon and their recommendation system. To make it work, you have to go through and manually rate items you already have. But I only have a 3 state reaction to a lot of things, not a 5 way grade. I love it, it's OK or I never want to hear/see it again.
