Android Candy: Free, Family, Fun—Fantastic
I've mentioned geocaching before, but if you've never taken the time to go out and do it, you're really missing out. Whether you're dragging your family through two feet of snow in the middle of the woods (yeah, I did that last year, I'm still not sure they've forgiven me) or following your GPS around a parking lot looking for a tiny micro-cache, geocaching is fun. You need only a few things to go geocaching:
A sense of adventure.
Friends or family (not required, but more fun).
A sharp mind (there often are brain puzzles involved).
A GPS or smartphone app to guide you.
That's where c:geo comes in. There are several geocaching apps for Android, and they vary in price from free to very not free. The c:geo app is one of the free ones, and it also happens to be one of the best. It will show you clues, help you find local geocaches and guide you on a map to the GPS location you need. Whether you're a hard-core geocacher or just want to go out for a little fun with the family, c:geo is a great tool for your Android device that will make geocaching easier and more enjoyable. You can find it in the Google Play Store.
Because it's such an incredible application, and because it relates to our three favorite F words (Free, Family, Fun), c:geo gets our Editors' Choice award this month. Download it now, and get out there and find stuff: http://www.cgeo.org.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
