image thumb1 5 Wikipedia Donation Fails You Can’t Miss

We must promote the availability of knowledge for free. Far and wide and to as many people out there as possible. And when it comes to information, Wikipedia is the best source for all this (though I believe quite a lot of information was written by people who had no one to listen to their whining). What we do love about Wikipedia is when they have poor Jimmy Wales right on top of every article appealing for donations for Wikipedia, just to keep the knowledge hub running.

We are sharing some of the most WTF Donate For Wikipedia Moments and would love to have our readers share the same with us. Have you ever performed a search on Wikipedia for an odd word or personality and found Jimmy Wales picture right above that odd name or word? Feel free to share links! In the meantime enjoy ours!

image thumb112 Big Names FAIL Big: Google Takes The Fail Tradition To Calendars [After Gmail]

I love Google and the countless services it provides us. I mean it would be impossible for me to easily collaborate with my team back at work if it weren’t for Google but! Why does it keep backing out at one time or the other?

The latest in news is Google Calendar that has been down for several hours on the trot. The reason? Well no one is aware of it and so are we. According to App Status Dashboard the problem is with service disruption and it isn’t an outage, call it stubbornness and Google’s unwillingness to accept that it has bigger problems handling such a massive user base it caters to by providing services on the cloud.

image thumb68 AT&T Facebook Drama: Security Flaw Taken Care For

The Web or more importantly the social networks that you are so profoundly the members of aren’t all that secure after all, even Facebook. Not that Facebook would sell your information or misuse the rights with secret super password that some of its employees might have. Earlier yesterday CNET reported that a glitch in AT&T causes users to login into someone else’s accounts using their credentials. Bong! And there went all your data, in the most secure platform, or one that claims to be.

The issue wasn’t with Facebook as already said, but with AT&T when users logged in with their credits to the social network on their mobiles. The problem was with handling request of accounts accessibility from the carrier to Facebook.
