    Play with a Wibbly-Wobbly Interactive Timeline of All the Doctors’ Travels

    DoctorWho.tv has put together a handy interactive infographic for you to play along with the Doctor's travels at home. The Hurt Doctor (as we call him) would probably dislike how wibbly-wobbly and timey-wimey it looks, but it's actually a really fun way to visualize just where in time the Doctor has gone on his roundabout path through history.

    Facebook Launches Personalized Year in Review Feature, Likely Shows Things You’d Rather Forget

    The totalitarian dictators at Facebook are once again deciding what you want and when you want it, whether or not you actually do. To commemorate the end of one year and the beginning of another, Facebook has introduced a personalized Year in Review: A retrospective feature that, to put it succinctly, invades your privacy and marauds your profile for pictures and other items of note to display. Go ahead, argue the point, but Facebook is still going to send you on an awkward trip down memory lane.

    Facebook’s New “Timeline” Interface Rolls Out to All Users Starting Today, Prepare for the Complaints

    Announced last year, Facebook's new Timeline interface is the largest change to its UI since the introduction of the Wall. For months, it was available only to developers and users who opted-in to the new layout. That changed today when Facebook announced that Timeline would begin rolling out over the next few weeks for all users starting today, and is guaranteed to spawn a myriad of "petitions" demanding its removal and a #timelinesucks tag on Twitter.

    Finally: The Official Zelda Timeline Releases, is Not One Single Line Like We Always Knew

    If anything has consistently been in contention regarding The Legend of Zelda series, it is if each game coherently fits into one single universe. Nintendo always said yes, gamers always said there is no possible way. Nintendo never really gave us many hints, but an accepted working theory was that Ocarina of Time was supposed to be the first in the timeline, and the original NES The Legend of Zelda (and its sequel) was supposed to be the last. Working with this information, and the fact that a few games in the series (Wind Waker and Majora's Mask, to name two) were directly related to other games in the series, gamers came up with the working theory that if you split the Zelda timeline in two, everything fit into place. Now, with the release of a new Zelda art book, Nintendo has released the official timeline for the series, both satiating our thirst for chronological Zelda order, and also really bugging us that Nintendo has regularly said all these years that everything fits into one timeline when this official timeline shows that, what do you know, there are three separate timelines.

    Facebook Cookies are Tracking You Whether You’re Logged In Or Not

    If the frictionless (read: permission-less) sharing involved with the new Facebook Timeline weirds you out a little, blogger Nik Cubrilovic has some more unsettling news for you. As it turns out, Facebook has cookies that will track the website you go to for its own purposes in addition to purposes that could arguably be for "sharing." If you log out, the cookies are not deleted, but instead modified and will still able to track letting Facebook keep an eye on the websites you visit.

    Cubrilovic had been working on a project involving fake Facebook accounts when he was tipped off to the situation. Despite the fact that his fake Facebook accounts were unconnected to his real account and that none of them were ever signed in simultaneously, Facebook started listing his real account as a suggested friend for his fake accounts. Facebook was keeping track of who was logging in and from where.

    Megan Fox vs. Michael Bay: A Timeline

    Yesterday's revelation that Megan Fox will not be starring in Transformers 3 stunned and divided a nation. While Fox is not generally regarded to be a particularly gifted actress, she is a pretty gal, and was seen by many as the main reason anyone would want to sit through a Transformers movie (typical messageboard comment: "Yeah… They just cut their boxoffice in half..") Time will tell what actually happens with Transformer 3.

    Fox's PR team issued a statement yesterday that said that "It was her decision not to return. She wishes the franchise the best," which Deadline's Nikki Finke dismissed as "absolutely untrue." More likely, she was axed for, among other reasons, comparing Transformers director Michael Bay to Hitler.

    How did things break down between Bay and Fox? We investigate:
