Favicons

2 Add-ons You Can Use To Help Manage Favicons [Firefox]

3rd June, 2012

It’s awfully frustrating when you’ve got a website that you really love and would like to keep sitting in your bookmarks toolbar, but there’s no favicon attached to the website that would set it apart from any other bookmark. Honestly, that’s kept me from bookmarking and more frequently visiting a few websites. If you’ve got a popular website, you need a favicon.

Wallpaper

2 Sites To Find The Best “Socially-Selected” Desktop Wallpaper

1st June, 2012

It’s pretty difficult to find a quality wallpaper site anymore. There’s a ton of them, but many are packed full of plain, boring, “stock” wallpapers that you don’t want sitting on your desktop. There are many more that are filled with adware, risky pop-ups and pop-unders, and more. That’s not the kind of stuff I’m into.

League of Legends

League Of Legends Darius Patch Overview [MUO Gaming]

29th May, 2012

Ever since the late, great Warcraft III brought us the beast that is DotA, online gaming has adapted a brand new genre – the MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena). League of Legends is the finest example of this class of game. LoL has done a great service to the world of online gaming by being a gold-standard example.

Time Management

Mind The Time & Time Limiter Both Help You Track Your Productivity [Firefox]

27th May, 2012

One of the worst strategies in managing your time is dedicating too much time towards figuring out the most effective way to prioritize your time. If you work in front of a computer, I’ve bet you’ve been there just as I have. We’ve shared a lot of solutions that you can use to make better use of your available time here at MUO, and I’ve got two more options for our Firefox users.

TimeSnapper Lets You Play Back Your Time On The PC Like A Movie [Windows]

25th May, 2012

TimeSnapper is a Windows application that sits in your system tray and gradually takes screenshots of your active window so that you can have a running log of exactly what you were doing at any random interval of the day. Putting TimeSnapper to good use means your desktop or laptop will be your own personal spy.

This Is Why I’m Broke – A One-Of-A-Kind Internet Mall

22nd May, 2012

If there’s one thing that there’s no shortage of on the Internet, it would be things that are weird, unique, and otherwise foreign to our beady little eyes. While I don’t particularly advise spending your money on these sorts of things (because you’ll run out of cash quicker than either of us can imagine), This Is Why I’m Broke is your one-stop website for finding the Internet’s strangest products.

Rap

Browse The Wikipedia Of Hip-Hop Lyrics At Rap Genius

20th May, 2012

Rap music isn’t all just what you hear on the radio or thumping from the teenager’s car beside you at your nearest intersection. It’s a pretty popular opinion that the radio rap genre is very dumbed down and easy to understand. I’d agree with that. Rap is sort of where pop music was in the late ’90s. Understanding that much, you’re cutting yourself short if you shrug hip-hop music aside as immature and boring.

Flashnote

Start Jotting Notes On Your PC The Right Way With Flashnote

18th May, 2012

Taking notes is really important. You need and should do it every day, whether you know it yet or not. If you use the internet for more than two hours in a day, there are always things worth noting. Don’t clutter your hard drive with individual text files saved by Notepad. That’s primitive. With Flashnote, you’re able to store all of your notes cleanly and in a single place.

Facebook

7 Apps That You Can Use To Help Facebook Invade Your Life

15th May, 2012

I’m having a bit of a rough and uncomfortable week on Facebook. Are you one of those people who are lazy when it comes to signup forms, figuring “hey, I might as well connect to Facebook and let them aggregate all of my information”? Me too! I’ve never really valued the privacy of my personal information, I don’t have much to hide and a stalker or two might add a little spice to my life.

Svpply

Svpply: Window Shop With Ease On The Tumblr Of Fashion

13th May, 2012

I jumped on Svpply about a week ago, and every day since then I’ve spent about an hour on this website. Picture blogging has really taken off online. Websites like Tumblr and Pinterest are huge, especially for those of us in our late teens and early 20s. Svpply takes reblogging elements of Tumblr, mixes them with the feed of Facebook, and keeps relevant backlinks intact the way Pinterest would, all in one stylish experience.

Cloud Storage

5 Things That You Should Be Using Your Cloud Storage For

11th May, 2012

Cloud storage services are great in that they offer a nice chunk of free storage that anyone should be able to put to use. With the cloud’s rising popularity and on-the-go computing as popular as ever in 2012, it’s time for you to get on the ball. But what exactly should you be using Dropbox, Google Drive, or another alternative for? Let me help you figure that.

Steam

Buy, Trade & Giveaway Steam Games With This Awesome Network Of Sites

8th May, 2012

Steam! You either love it for being one of the largest and most successful gaming communities online, or you absolutely hate it because you’re completely against all that hoopla over digital rights. With that in mind, allow me to introduce you to a network of three websites that will make your Steam experience even steamier.

Mail

Use Your Email Like It’s Instapaper With toread & CC:to me

6th May, 2012

Instapaper and Read It Later aren’t for everyone. A lot of us are more simple. Our email is the headquarters where we get everything done. With that, I’d like to use this article to introduce you to the powers of toread and CC:to me, the best in-email alternatives to IP and RIL.

NES

Emulating & Playing Classic NES Games On Your Computer With Nestopia

4th May, 2012

Oh, the NES. As an ’89 baby, there wasn’t a larger part of my childhood than this gaming console. Before school, after school, and on weekends you would find me attached to this thing. With Crystalis, Metroid, Metal Gear, Final Fantasy, Mega Man 1-6, Castlevania, Dragon Warrior, River City Ransom, Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!, Contra, The Legend of Zelda, and the entire Mario Bros. series, what is there not to love?

Comics

Download & Read Classic Comic Books Using Comic Books Archive & ComicRack

1st May, 2012

As a kid, I burned through a lot of hobbies and phases. There was the NES, pogs, trading cards, and I was huge on comic books. I still have them all, stored away in plastic cases and as (probably) worthless as ever. Nonetheless, these are pieces of nostalgia that I don’t want to let go. Knowing that a lot of my favorite comic books exist online forever would make letting go a lot easier, though.
