Hacking the Nokia Internet Tablet
For Further Hackery
Getting more information on the tablets and their extensibility is easy, thanks to excellent documentation on the Internet about these units. The first stop when looking for information should be the maemo.org site. This site is the home for all things tablet-related, from the Nokia wiki, to the software repositories, as well as the software updates and source code archives. It's all on maemo.org—except for the true hacks. Those can be found in the archives of the Internet Tablet Talks forums. The people there have come up with some truly amazing hacks and other really neat ways of using the tablets, and there's something new almost every day there.

Bill Childers is an IT Manager in Silicon Valley, where he lives with his wife and two children. He enjoys Linux far too much, and he probably should get more sun from time to time. In his spare time, he does work with the Gilroy Garlic Festival, but he does not smell like garlic.
Bill Childers is the Virtual Editor for Linux Journal. No one really knows what that means.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
