The Navy has contracted Raytheon, a technology and innovation company, for almost $28 million to switch the operating systems in its drones from the current Solaris system to the open source Linux .
The tactical control system (TCS) will originally be developed for the Navy’s vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) drones, but it will eventually be used throughout the military. The reasons the Navy has opted for Linux for its drones include reliability, the open source nature of Linux, and security.
Flickr was among the first in the image-sharing wave that has taken social media by storm in the past several years. Despite this, they have been eclipsed by a number of competitors thanks to some innovative features and viral marketing exposure. However, the company recently released a batch of updates that includes a number of new features designed to take back a share of the market. Yahoo has been developing these changes since purchasing the company in 2005.
Here’s Flickr’s new intro video:
The foundation of any successful SEO campaign revolves around keyword research.

While some work the mailroom jobs to try and break into a large corporation, why are SEO professionals so successful and quick to advance? Which kinds of people get hired and normally thrive in the SEO industry?
Having been a career counselor for several years and acting as a liaison between many different companies and young, eager professionals, it is safe to say that it takes a certain personality to flourish in the world of SEO. Here are some of the top personality traits that I noted:
“PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system,” said PostgreSQL. “It has more than 15 years of active development and a proven architecture that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity, and correctness.”
PostgreSQL focuses on overall traditional features for RDMS applications, while MySQL is more concerned on faster performance for web-based applications that typically form part of a LAMP model.
“The MySQL database has become the world’s most popular open source database because of its high performance, high reliability and ease of use,” said MySQL. “It is also the database of choice for a new generation of applications built on the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP / Perl / Python.).”
The penguin is soaring high in the IT industry, consistently earning a reputation for high reliability. Linux servers regularly appear as a Fortune 500 company favorite when it comes to solid performance computing and cloud infrastructure deployment.
“More than 7,800 developers from almost 800 different companies have contributed to the Linux kernel since tracking began in 2005,” according to the Annual Linux Development Report by The Linux Foundation.
“Just since the last report, more than 1,000 developers representing nearly 200 companies have contributed to the kernel.”
This expansion is largely driven by the following advancements:
Prominent technology brands, Microsoft and Google, are now offering cloud storage services, making it easier for Internet users to save, upload, and back up files.
We recently reviewed Dropbox against Google Drive in the race for the best storage application and with a combination of Dropbox-like syncing and back-up features, both Google Drive and SkyDrive attract a variety of users. Some prefer the former, others the latter, leaving the rest of us to wonder: Which is better?
We took at a stab at this question by examining some of the key features that users look for in a cloud platform including user interface (UI), simplicity, features and pricing.
