Android Candy: Flickr Uploader

As luck would have it, shortly after I purchased a Flickr Pro subscription, Yahoo decided to eliminate the pay-for option with Flickr and give everyone a free Terabyte of space to store photos. Although I'm still not convinced Flickr is the best way to store photos, I have found it to be very flexible, so for now, my family members dump all their photos to Flickr from all their devices. (And then I back them up with because I'm paranoid.)

On my phone, a Galaxy S4, I find it cumbersome to upload photos directly to Flickr, so I bought Flickr Uploader from the Google Play store, and now all my photos are uploaded to Flickr instantly when I take them. Options are available to limit uploading to Wi-Fi only, or to upload only certain kinds of photos (camera photos but not screenshots, for example). The application is $4.99, but the developer has created "coupons" to get the application for a huge discount or even free.

I find the application to be smooth, stable and incredibly convenient. It's important to realize, however, that if you're the sort of person to take personal or compromising photos, double- and triple-check your settings to make sure you don't upload publicly viewable shots automatically! If you're a Flickr user, check out Flickr Uploader today.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux has become a key foundation for supporting today's rapidly growing IT environments. Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
