Wacky Wiki: 6 Fascinating People on Wikipedia

Most people approach Wikipedia as they approach Google: they head there with a search term already in mind. But that approach may mean you miss out on much of what Wikipedia has to offer. It boasts entries that are obscure, odd, offbeat, and unlikely to be seen by more than a handful of people. Welcome to the world of weird Wikipedia.

Will it fail? Will it become a media sensation?

Facebook For iPhone: The Review We Should Have Written By Now [iOS]

The Facebook app of today isn’t the same app it was when it was first released. It’s a new kind of monster with extra features and a sexier design. Yes, it has the same basic functions that Facebook (and the original app) has always offered, but over time, it’s been redone almost as many times as my ex-girlfriend’s MySpace page. It’s time to take a good look at the latest iPhone app and its features.

Stop Annoying UAC Prompts – How To Create A User Account Control Whitelist [Windows]

Ever since Vista, we Windows users have been pestered, bugged, annoyed, and tired of the User Account Control (UAC) prompt telling us a program is starting up that we intentionally launched. Sure, it has improved, but not to the extent that we’ve hoped. It still comes up for good and reputable programs like Geek Uninstaller, Everything, CCleaner, and others. So what do you do?

How I Built A Projector For My Phone

When I first saw Photojojo’s DIY iPhone projector I was intrigued. The science behind it was sound in my mind, but I wondered how usable it really was. The only way to find out was to make one myself, but not content with simply making another website’s tutorial I decided to change things a bit. What I ended up with is a slightly easier to use yet still ultimately hobbyist toy for iPhone photographers. Total cost? $4.50 for a magnifying glass and some duct tape.

Facebook Home Hijacks Your Android Phone – Should You Let It? [Weekly Facebook Tips]

Facebook Home is the social network’s home screen replacement for Android phones, currently only available on select HTC and Samsung devices. By acting as a launcher, the app takes over a central position on the phone and provides instant access to Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg expects Home to change the relationship people have with their mobile devices. Not surprisingly, the app is highly controversial.

I’m therefore constantly on the prowl for the perfect music player. But here’s the thing: I’ve already been through all of the big name household programs.

How to Use Google Person Finder to Locate Loved Ones After a Disaster

Living barely an hour and a half from Boston, it was a bit surreal to watch the aftermath of the recent Boston Marathon bombings. I know there are lots of readers from different countries that frequent MUO, and many of those countries are somewhat violent – where bombings are not a rarity. However – in Boston, bombings are very much a rarity. And when things are rare, tpeople are unprepared for the aftermath.
