Android applications are developed specifically for Android OS devices and are available in the Android "Market", preinstalled on most Android devices, allowing users to browse and download apps published by third-party developers.
Beginning in September 2011, Linux Journal began offering a custom Android app. The app itself is free to all and includes one sample issue of the magazine as well as a constantly updated feed of news and stories. All paid Linux Journal subscribers also receive access to read their monthly issue from within the Android app as a part of their regular subscription.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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