No Downloads (local copies): Tech Issue or Legal (IP) Issue?
I'm a new subscriber now accessing LJ via the Texterity app on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 7+ running android 3.2 (it looks very good... I'm happy.. I don't miss the paper). I'm surprised and unhappy over the realization that downloaded issues aren't preserved, and appear to be deleted once the present session ends. I notice this issue has been raised for many months already, with no apparent substantial response or change. I'd like to get a clarification on what the issue is here. Is this behavior by design purposefully to assert or protect the legal IP rights of either LJ or Texterity? Or, is this inability to locally save issues purely a product of a Version 1.0 (or less?) release? Or, is this restrictive behavior a product of Androids architecture... perhaps necessitated by the needs to preserve compatibilities across several OS versions and hundreds of different hardware devices? Does LJ (I'll separately query Texterity about this) have any issues with me hacking my own kernel/environment to over-ride this behavior?

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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