5 YouTube Shows & Personalities That You Really Must See

10th June, 2012

The success of YouTube has created an atmosphere where “normal” people like you and I have an outlet to gain fame and fortune from the confines of our own homes. It’s not easy, but it’s possible. YouTube’s Fred was a pretty regular kid before he plateaued YouTube as the user with the most subscribers. The “Charlie […]

Use @unfollowr As The Easiest Way To Monitor Who Unfollows You On Twitter

8th June, 2012

With networks like Klout popping up here, there and everywhere, it’s now more important than ever to be relevant when you’re on the web. If you’re an Internet personality or someone who really values their audience online, keeping track of how your base responds and reacts to the things you do and say could be your lifeline.

Email

3 Ways To Instantly Create A New Email Address For Yourself

5th June, 2012

There are a lot of different ways that you and I use the Internet and sometimes they should be kept separate. That includes email inboxes. It’s nice to keep your personal emails apart from your work emails. Sometimes, you may even want to separate emails from social networks or dating sites from other personal emails.

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.
