Android Candy: Repix, Not Just Another Photo App
Apps like Instagram have made photo filters commonplace. I actually don't mind the vintage look for quick cell-phone snapshots, but a filter can do only so much. At first glance, Repix is another one of those "make your photo cool" apps that does little more than add a border and change saturation levels. It is more than that, however, taking photo modification to the next level and making it art.
The photo here, for instance, is from the Repix Flickr stream. It's obviously been filtered, but you're sure to notice there's a lot more going on. I'm not a terribly visually artistic person, but Repix allows a few simple touches to make a beautiful difference. If you're looking for a simple way to make your cat photos a little more exciting, but don't want to have to transfer photos to a desktop application, check out Repix. The standard features are free, but with an in-app purchase, you can get more packages to play with.
Due to its ability to help a luddite like myself create artsy photographs, Repix gets this month's Editors' Choice award. If you like to take photos, but don't have an artistic bone in your body, I urge you to check it out. It's in the Play Store, but the Web site is http://www.repix.it.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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