Android Candy: Flickr Uploader
As luck would have it, shortly after I purchased a Flickr Pro subscription, Yahoo decided to eliminate the pay-for option with Flickr and give everyone a free Terabyte of space to store photos. Although I'm still not convinced Flickr is the best way to store photos, I have found it to be very flexible, so for now, my family members dump all their photos to Flickr from all their devices. (And then I back them up with https://pypi.python.org/pypi/flickrbackup because I'm paranoid.)
On my phone, a Galaxy S4, I find it cumbersome to upload photos directly to Flickr, so I bought Flickr Uploader from the Google Play store, and now all my photos are uploaded to Flickr instantly when I take them. Options are available to limit uploading to Wi-Fi only, or to upload only certain kinds of photos (camera photos but not screenshots, for example). The application is $4.99, but the developer has created "coupons" to get the application for a huge discount or even free.
I find the application to be smooth, stable and incredibly convenient. It's important to realize, however, that if you're the sort of person to take personal or compromising photos, double- and triple-check your settings to make sure you don't upload publicly viewable shots automatically! If you're a Flickr user, check out Flickr Uploader today.

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
