Doors lightOpen source software powers the world’s technology. In the past decade, there has been an inexorable adoption of open source in most aspects of computing. Without open source, Facebook, Google, Amazon, and nearly every other modern technology company would not exist. Thanks to an amazing community of innovative, top-notch programmers, open source has become the foundation of cloud computing, software-as-a-service, next generation databases, mobile devices, the consumer Internet, and even Bitcoin.

Google’s Cloud SQL Hits General Availability, Gets An SLA, Encryption And Support For Larger Databases
blogger_hexagonsAfter two-and-a-half years in preview, Google's Cloud SQL, the company's fully managed MySQL database service, has now hit general availability. As with most Google services that hit this milestone, Cloud SQL now features an SLA, which guarantees 99.95 percent availability for the service. Google will consider a minute of 20 percent connection failure as downtime, which is pretty generous.

Yahoo Confirms It Has No Plans To Update Flickr’s Windows Phone App
Screen Shot 2014-02-07 at 9.51.31 AMYahoo has no current intention to update its Flickr application for Windows Phone. A user request for the company to both update its extant, but quite dated Windows Phone app, and perhaps build one for Windows 8 (another user requested a Windows 8.1 app separately) was met with a terse, if friendly response: Thank you for this feedback. At this point, we are focusing our mobile development efforts on iPhone and Android apps. If this changes, we’ll let you know in the forum here. Yahoo confirmed the decision with TechCrunch. The company provided a second short statement: We can confirm that we currently have no plans to update our Flickr Windows Phone app. At times, we have to make tough decisions and prioritize our efforts. This change will allow us to spend more energy on improving our Flickr mobile experience. Microsoft did not respond with comment in time for publication. (Update: Microsoft declined to comment.) To sum, Yahoo is focusing its resources on the two largest smartphone platforms — iOS and Android — and is not pushing cash or hours toward Microsoft’s Windows Phone effort. To quote WMPowerUser, who brought the initial Yahoo response to our attention, “Yahoo released [a] Flickr app for Windows Phone devices back in [the] WP7 days. After a period of time, the app was never updated and Yahoo never showed any interest in revamping the app.” Microsoft’s hard-fought, and earned position at number three in the smartphone game has brought the firm increasing mobile presence and credibility. Yet that doesn’t mean, as we can see here, that all players are now willing to spend to cater to its audience. That Yahoo, a now purportedly mobile-first company would choose to avoid Windows Phone makes the decision all the more salty for Microsoft. Yahoo itself took some razzing over the choice. Flickr users, in response to the company’s stated decision, lit the firm up. A sampling from the thread: “I will be taking back all my photos now. sticking them in to skydrive until a proper upload service can be created for the 1020. one I can upload over the air.” “Congratulations to Flikr, a service that is failing fast, in ignoring the fastest growing mobile platform and one that has some of the best mobile photography devices on the market.” “yahoo has been buying out so many dev studios and you can’t afford to buy one that already has windows
