Sleep as Android

I sleep poorly. In fact, insomnia has plagued me for years. As it turns out, even when I think I'm sleeping well, I'm usually not. There's nothing worse than a shoddy night's sleep followed by an abrupt alarm going off when you've finally settled into a deep slumber.

Enter: Sleep as Android.

By using the accelerometer in your phone, Sleep as Android not only tracks how restful your sleep was during the night, but it also determines the best moment to wake you up. Rather than setting an exact time to wake up, you enter a "time range" in which you'd like to be woken. Sleep as Android looks for a time during that range where you're sleeping lightly (or not at all) and goes off. More times than not, it means waking up feeling refreshed, as opposed to my normal routine: groggy and coffee-starved. If you have trouble sleeping, or just prefer to wake up feeling refreshed, give Sleep as Android a try. It's free for two weeks, then only $2.99 if you want to keep it. I've listed only some of the features here, but check it out, it's truly an awesome program: https://sites.google.com/site/sleepasandroid/home.

Maybe someone from Linux Journal should write an article about spam filters, and why LinuxJournal.com's filter is the worst I've seen in a long time.

Skeptic

Hmm. I may be skeptic about this and wanted to know more about this one. As a medical professional I know that it takes more than a phone's accelerometer to record your sleep. How can it track it? Is it the brain's activity? I would check this one out. Thank you for posting an intriguing topic.

In my Iphone days there were a few different sleeping programs that did the same as sleep as Android above.

I had thought that there were others for the Android phone?

Is sleep as Android the best one out?

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.
