    I think a guide for Media Centers (boxee, xbmc, etc) is in order. With everyone buying boxes just to stream movies it might be a good idea to show people how easy it is to hook up a computer to your tv as well

    I'd like a LinkdIn Manual.
    My clients ask me so many questions about Microsoft Office. It usually involves "why it doesn't come on the computer." A manual explaining the different versions of office, what they provide, and alternatives to MO would be great. That way I can just send them to your site instead of spending an hour trying to explain it.

    I want MUO to publish pdf guides like:
    Step by Step to be a Good Programmer (learn this first, then that, then what ...), or
    Step by Step to be a Good Hacker, or
    Step by Step to be a Good Web Designer, or
    Step by Step to be a Good Writer, or
    Step by Step to be a Good umm ... Businessman, whatever.
    I believe if we want to be good at something we must learn A first, then when we mastered A, we better learn B, then C, and so on.
    It will be very useful and open many people's mind.

    In today's world, there's widespread use of smartphone.Be it iphone, android etc.

    I want MUO to publish articles on how to choose a smartphone and what are the important things to be considered while choosing it.

    Smartphone's batteries have also became today's issue as every user has to charge their phones everyday.I want MUO to also concentrate on battery of smartphones.

    I also want this article to be published as there are less resources available on web on this topic.
