Using wp-uploads instead of wp-content/uploads

What is the difference between the wp-uploads directory and the wp-content/uploads directory? I am running Ubuntu Server 12.04 and recently installed WordPress using apt-get, but there have been a few problems.

Where does wordpress store the FTP credentials?

When wordpress asks for FTP information to upgrade, you type it in and then it seems to store it for future use (for future upgrades, and maybe also for media uploads?) Where does it store these details? Is it in a file? In the database? I’m trying to figure out what information is being used […]

Filter to modify post_title after image upload?

When I upload images, WordPress 3.4.2 sets the Title to the base of the filename, such as “DSCN1234” or “IMG_1234”. I’d like the Title to be left blank.
