A friend told me about an interesting use for Mechanical Turk.  He says he uses it to get research tasks accomplished that he’d otherwise have to pay hourly employees to take on.  For instance, coding documents for quality can be created as a Mechanical Turk job, and then the documents can be uploaded, and the users started off.  He says that unless you can get your hourly workers for $1/hour, MT is usually cheaper.
