Android Candy: Pocket
Most people are familiar with Instapaper and Read It Later. Those types of services are great for tagging Web articles for later reading, and in the case of Read It Later (now called "Pocket"), they do a wonderful job of copying articles off-line for reading when the Internet isn't available.
Using Pocket's Chrome extension, as I browse the Web during the day and find articles I'd like to read later, I add them to my Pocket queue with a single click. This works perfectly for me, because although I find lots of things to read during the work day, I don't have time to read them. Now, I simply can open the Pocket app on my Nexus 7 and catch up on my reading as if it were an e-book. As you can see, articles are formatted for easy reading, and because they sync off-line, reading doesn't require Internet access.
Pocket is a great system, a really nice Android app and provides an effective way of staying out of trouble at work! Check it out at the Google Play store, or visit the Web site: http://getpocket.com.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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
