Smile, you're on Tornado M20 camera. Or, you may be, after you read about the astounding Linux-based camera phone and digital media center in this issue. You'll be amazed at how much more this puppy can do than your typical VoIP phone. If you want more of a digital media center, Jes Hall will tell you all about OpenMedia myPVR 2.0.
As you know by now, there's always much more. We interview open standards champion Bob Sutor. We get you started programming for the Trolltech Greenphone. And, we walk you though the promising video editor project, KDENLIVE.

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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