Welcome to the New LinuxJournal.com
You may have noticed something different about LinuxJournal.com today.
I am very pleased to share our newly redesigned site with you, and I'd like to tell you a little bit about some of the new features. I hope you'll take the time to register, if you have not already, so that you may take advantage of all of the new features we have added and will continue to add.
When you are logged into the new LinuxJournal.com you'll be able to communicate with other readers and with the Linux Journal editors and staff. Visit the participate page to search for other readers and editors, so you can make friends and share your experiences in the world of Linux and open source. Think of us as your virtual LUG!
Once you have established a profile, this will also be your "recipe book" to keep track of all your favorite articles and posts from around the site. You'll notice a new link at the bottom of each post that says "Mark as Favorite." Use this to store articles for easy reference.
I'll continue to add new features in the near future, and I look forward to sharing them as our online community grows.
Please feel free to leave comments here with your feedback.
P.S. Every week we'll randomly select a handful of registered members to receive free, cool stuff and this week we're giving away 5 copies of The Official Ubuntu Server Book by Benjamin Mako Hill and Linux Journal's own hack editor, Kyle Rankin (psst... he's the guy in the super-cool video goggles on the front page).
Pick up any e-commerce web or mobile app today, and you’ll be holding a mashup of interconnected applications and services from a variety of different providers. For instance, when you connect to Amazon’s e-commerce app, cookies, tags and pixels that are monitored by solutions like Exact Target, BazaarVoice, Bing, Shopzilla, Liveramp and Google Tag Manager track every action you take. You’re presented with special offers and coupons based on your viewing and buying patterns. If you find something you want for your birthday, a third party manages your wish list, which you can share through multiple social- media outlets or email to a friend. When you select something to buy, you find yourself presented with similar items as kind suggestions. And when you finally check out, you’re offered the ability to pay with promo codes, gifts cards, PayPal or a variety of credit cards.Get the Guide
