Rackspace Gives Their Android App a Facelift
Rackspace is back in the news again this week with the latest version of their Rackspace Cloud Android App. And the new version isn’t just a bug fix (although Rackspace says they’ve improved the app’s performance). The updated application now supports OpenStack servers, the ability to manage multiple accounts and carry out functions like reboot, change root password and call Rackspace support from within the app.

As a Gen X-er and technophile, one of my pet peeves has become teaching my parents how to use every day technology. So I can only imagine the perspective that Gen-Y (i.e. people in their twenties) and Gen-Z (teens) have, because the web and mobile technology has been around for the bulk of their existence. Hostgator’s comparison of daily habits amongst different generations offers an entertaining view of our differences.

What is CloudFlare?
We don’t usually do promo announcements on this blog. In fact, we never do. However, I’ve used CloudFlare for a couple years and have to say that its about the coolest thing since sliced bread. Basically, Cloudflare is a combination between a CDN and a firewall. That means, it speeds up your website and protects it from malicious visitors.
