In most cases, developers prefer to make new smartphone apps for iPhone first, only moving to Android and other platforms once they get some traction.

(Android owners who had to wait months for Twitter’s video app Vine know what we’re talking about.)

But there are some outliers. There are a bunch of great apps that happen to be Android exclusives. Check them out.

Ingress is a sci-fi game that sends you on a scavenger hunt through the real world to find “hidden” virtual goodies.

Google developed the game. Here’s the plot:

“A mysterious energy has been unearthed by a team of scientists in Europe. The origin and purpose of this force is unknown, but some researchers believe it is influencing the way we think. We must control it or it will control us.”

So, basically, you run around your town trying to find this illusive “energy” before the bad guys do.

Chevrolet Corvette Timeline: Milestones and More from C1 through C7

By Andrew Wendler

Chevrolet Corvette Timeline: Milestones and More from C1 through C7

Over its 60-odd-year run, the Corvette has largely stuck to its original objective of providing homegrown performance wrapped in a stylish, two-seat package. Its journey has at times been an uncertain one, but now in its seventh generation, it’s safe to say the hits have outnumber the misses. Here’s our look at the Corvette story from conception to 2014 C7.

C1 1953–1962

1951: Harley Earl, GM’s chief designer, drives the Le Sabre concept car to Watkins Glen, where he falls in love with the Jaguar XK120. The wheels begin to turn.

1953: Chevrolet reveals the Corvette dream car on January 17, 1953, at New York’s Waldorf Astoria hotel, as part of the kickoff to that year’s GM Motorama. Named after small, highly maneuverable naval escort ship, the show car is also known as the EX-122.

On June 30 of the same year, the first production 1953 Corvette rolls off the assembly line in Flint, Michigan. Production is capped at 300 units, all in the now iconic Polo White/Sportsman Red exterior/interior color scheme and powered by the 150-hp, three-carb “Blue Flame” inline-six and a two-speed Powerglide transmission. The only options are a heater and an AM radio.

1954: Corvette production begins at GM’s St. Louis, Missouri, facility on January 1. Chevrolet expands the exterior color choices to include Pennant Blue, Sportsman Red, and Black. Beige is added as an interior option. The straight-six engine gets bumped to 155 hp. Just 3640 Corvettes are produced by year’s end.

1955: The small block Chevy V-8 makes its first appearance between a Corvette’s fiberglass fenders, and a three-speed manual appears as an option. The year closes with the six-cylinder bidding adieu. Production totals 700 units.

1956: Factory-installed removable hardtops are offered for the first time, and the exterior gets exposed headlamps, sculpted side coves, and roll-up windows. Seatbelts make the scene as a dealer-installed option, and one-hundred and eleven buyers drop $188.30 on a high-lift cam (order code: RPO #449). Head Corvette engineer (and future legend) Zora Arkus-Duntov tells the brass to go racing, but his pleas for a racing program fall on deaf corporate ears. Two four-barrel carbs enhance the 265-cubic-inch (4.3-liter) V-8, and our own Karl Ludvigsen (back when we were known as Sports Cars Illustrated) deems the ’56 credible: “Without qualification, General Motors is now building a sports car.”

Marathon bomber killed in shootout had arrest record

By Cristina Corbin

The older suspect in the Boston bombings was arrested in 2009, Massachusetts authorities confirmed Friday, but they would not say what caused the arrest.

Middlesex County District Attorney spokeswoman Stephanie Guyotte told FoxNews.com that 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev — killed early this morning in a police shootout — was arrested by the Cambridge Police Department.

But Guyotte could not elaborate under current state law, saying only, “He doesn’t have any prior convictions.”

The website, spotcrime.com, reports that the elder Tsarnaev was arrested four years ago for domestic assault and battery of his then-girlfriend. The website sources a Cambridge Police Department news release from July 2009, which does not contain any names.

“On 7/22/09 at 12:52 AM, a Norfolk St. resident reports that her ex-boyfriend pushed her to the ground after an argument outside of the Middlesex Lounge restaurant on Mass Ave.,” the statement reads. It is not confirmed whether the ex-boyfriend cited is Tsarnaev.

Tsarnaev had a 3-year-old child and was reportedly married. It’s not known whether the arrest involved his purported widow.

Tsarnaev, identified as Suspect No. 1, was killed early this morning after a gun battle with police in Watertown, Mass. His 19-year-old brother, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, remains at large.

Sar -u generates multiple column headers in csv file

By a1_win

Hi All,

The below sar -u command generates multiple column headers in csv file

Expected output should print column headers only once in the csv file

Code:

shell script:

$cat sar_cpu_EBS.sh

#!/bin/bash

while [ 1 -eq 1 ]; do
sar -u 15 1 | awk '/^[0-9]/ {print $1,$2,$4,$6,$7}' | tr -s ' ' ',' >> /sar_cpu_EBS_`date +%m%d%y`.csv
sleep 5
done


Code:


Output the shell script provides:

To print lines between 2 timestamps using awk|sed and regex

By sarah-alikhan31

Hi,

I am using the following code to fetch lines that are generated in last 1 hr . Hence, I am using date function to calculate -last 1 hr & the current hr and then somehow use awk (or sed-if someone could guide me better)
with some regex pattern.

Code:

dt_1=`date +%h" "%d", "%Y %l -d "1 hour ago"` #Apr 05, 2013 1 --- if ran at 02 AM
dt_2=`date +%p -d "1 hour ago"` # AM|PM
echo $dt_1
echo $dt_2
dt_3=`date +%h" "%d", "%Y %l`
dt_4=`date +%p`
echo $dt_3
echo $dt_4
awk -v a="{$dt_1}" -v b="{$dt_2}" -v c="{$dt_3}" -v d="{$dt_4}" '$0~/a:[0-9][0-9]:[0-9][0-9] b/{flag=1;next} $0~/c:[0-9][0-9]:[0-9][0-9] d/{flag=0} flag' /some/logfile >> /some/dump_logs.txt


The above code doesnot give any errors and I have also tried without $0~

Let’s say I want all the lines starting from
Apr 07, 2013 1:mm:ss AM
to
Apr 07, 2013 2:mm:ss AM

if script gets executed b/w 2:00-2:59 hrs

OR
lines between
Apr 07, 2013 12:mm:ss PM
to
Apr 07, 2013 1:mm:ss PM

if script gets executed b/w 13:00-13:59 hrs

I have been searching for similar posts reported by various users, but I can only see variables being used in awk, without any regex pattern.

Could anyone please guide me here ?

Need answers for these shell programs…..

By sandeep148

1. Write a shell script to print the file names of all files having .txt extension of a given directory after converting to uppercase letters. The input (directory name) should be given as command line argument. The script will also check whether sufficient arguments are passed or not and whether the argument is a directory or not. In case of invalid input, proper message should be displayed.

2. Write a script that would print any one of the following message along with the username according to the system time:
Good Morning, between 12 AM and 12 PM.
Good Afternoon, between 12PM and 4 PM
Good Evening, after 4 PM

3. Write a shell script – compare.sh
It will take two string arguments from the user, compare them and give the output “Both are same” or “Both are different” based on whether they are same or not. If input string is null, error message should be given.
If user enters less or more number of arguments, an error should be thrown

4. Write a script which accept a number from command line and check whether it is prime or not. If it is prime number then store this number into prime.txt file otherwise store into notprime.txt file.
If user enters less or more number of arguments, an error should be thrown.

5. Write a shell script – reverse.sh
It will take a line as argument from the user, and display it in reverse order. If input string is null, error message should be given.
If user enters less or more number of arguments, an error should be thrown

Ex :
Input : This is Unix.
Output : Unix is This.

6. Write a shell script that prints the total number of users having a given file in their home directory. The input filename should be supplied as command line argument.

7. Write a shell script to count the frequency of semi colons( in a given file. The input file should be given as command line argument. The script will check whether sufficient arguments are there or not and whether the argument is a file or not while the script is executed. In case of invalid input , proper message should be displayed.

8. Use awk for displaying first n numbers in Fibonacci series where n is supplied as command line argument.
Note: Fibonacci series of numbers are 0 and 1, and each remaining number is the sum of the previous two. For e.g. first 5 numbers in Fibonacci series are 0, 1, 1, 2, 3

9. Write a shell script to display the four letter words in a given file. The script will also print the count of such words. The input file should be given as command line argument. The script will check whether sufficient arguments are there or not and whether the argument is a file or not while the script is executed. In case of invalid …read more

Utah cabin burglar ends long run in wilderness

Troy James Knapp was dodging authorities, again.

The fugitive with a fondness for whiskey and a dislike of living near people had been wanted for a string of break-ins for years at cabins in Utah’s mountains. With each near miss, each wanted poster and each threatening note left behind for law enforcement, the legend of him only grew.

Knapp survived by holing up inside the cabins, sleeping in the owners’ beds, eating their food and listening to their AM radio for updates on the manhunt. And then, authorities say, he would take off, stealing items such as guns and high-end camping equipment and vanishing into the woods where he lived off dandelions and wild game.

Over Easter weekend, authorities were on his trail, again.

By Tuesday, his life on the lam came to an end, done in by an educated guess by searchers who had grown to know his tendencies, the tracks he left with his snowshoes and the sounds of him chopping wood outside a cabin near a mountain reservoir.

A team of 14 officers approached him on snowshoes — the only way to quietly sneak up on him — and called in reinforcements to help corner the bearded and camouflage-clad fugitive, a trim 45-year-old standing 5-foot-8.

Now in police custody, Knapp is telling authorities how he managed to evade them for so long across a mountainous region stretching for 180 miles. “He really has a fascinating story to tell, and right now he’s willing to tell it,” Sanpete County Sheriff Brian Nielson said.

Knapp, born in Saginaw, Mich., got into trouble with the law early. As a teenager, he was convicted of breaking and entering, passing bad checks and unlawful flight from authorities, according to court records. His most serious offense, an arrest for felony assault in Michigan, was reduced in 1994 to a charge of malicious destruction of property after he agreed to plead guilty.

“He says, ‘I don’t hate people. I just don’t like living with them,'” Sevier County Sheriff Nathan Sheriff Curtis said.

With no known occupation, Knapp drifted across the country and ended up in prison in California for burglary. He fell off the radar in 2004 when he “went on the run” while on parole, said Bobby Haase, a spokesman for the California …read more

Silicon Labs Launches Most Integrated Multiband Receiver Solution for Wheel-Tuned Radio Designs

New Si48xx AM/FM/SW Radio ICs Ease Design and Manufacturing for China’s 115 Million-Unit-Per-Year Analog-Tuned Radio Market

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Silicon Labs (NAS: SLAB) , a leader in high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal ICs, today introduced the latest generation of the company’s widely used analog-tuned, analog/digital-display (ATxD) multiband radio IC family. The new Si4825/27/36 AM/FM/SW receivers provide superior radio band coverage and a 16-pin SOIC package option that eases the design and manufacturing of ATxD radio products. The new Si48xx radio ICs provide an “all-in-one” single-chip receiver solution for tabletop and portable radios, stereos, mini/micro systems, boomboxes, clock radios, iPod docking stations, toy radios and many other consumer products containing wheel-tuned radios.

The wheel-tuned or “analog-tuned” multiband radio product market exceeds 115 million units per year, according to Silicon Labs estimates. More than 90 percent of all ATxD radios including products for the global export market are manufactured in China. A pioneer in RF-in-CMOS multiband receivers for the wheel-tuned radio market, Silicon Labs has now delivered three generations of single-chip receiver solutions that reduce the cost and complexity and simplify the manufacturing of radio products used by many millions of consumers worldwide.

Silicon Labs‘ new Si4825/27/36 receivers offer the same exceptional RF performance, unmatched integration in CMOS, bill of materials (BOM) and labor cost reduction, and ease of design and manufacturing as previous generations of Si48xx radio ICs. In addition, the new receivers use a single band to cover a wider frequency range for FM and SW bands, and they also support TV audio carrier reception in the China market. Additionally, the devices provide advanced audio conditioning for all signal environments, removing pops, clicks and loud static in challenging signal conditions.

The Si4825 mono-output, consumer-grade product and the Si4836 stereo-output, commercial-grade product are designed for the ATAD radio market. The Si4827 mono-output, consumer-grade product targets the ATDD radio market. Each receiver supports worldwide broadcast frequencies from 64-109 MHz in FM, 504-1750 kHz in AM and 2.3-28.5 MHz in shortwave (SW), enabling a single radio design based on the receivers to support all worldwide markets.

Silicon Labs‘ Si48xx multiband receiver family provides an innovative ‘radio-on-a-chip’ architecture that enables wheel-tuned radio manufacturers to simplify and shrink their board designs, eliminate costly manual labor in manufacturing and reduce component count by more than 80 percent,” said James Stansberry, vice president and general manager of …read more

Why Would Mel Karmazin Go to Pandora?

By Rick Munarriz, Munarriz, The Motley Fool

Filed under:

Pandora may have stunned investors with last week’s announcement that CEO Joe Kennedy would be stepping down after helping the company’s board find a replacement, but it didn’t take long for speculation to begin stirring about Mel Karmazin taking his place.

Billboard opined a day later that Pandora may be looking for a seasoned radio veteran to take Kennedy’s place. A former radio exec argues that Karmazin would be a good fit.

“He is the smartest media executive I have ever known,” he argues.

Several financial outlets and bloggers have been throwing their weight behind the former CBS and Sirius XM Radio chief to take the reins at Pandora.

It doesn’t seem feasible.

Karmazin doesn’t come cheap, and you have to remember that Pandora lost money in its latest fiscal year on the way to ringing up $427.1 million in revenue. Sirius XM was profitable on $3.4 billion in revenue.

Pandora won’t have a problem finding a proven terrestrial vet to hop on the growing Pandora platform, but Karmazin is probably out of its price range.

Then again, does Pandora even need a radio veteran?

Pandora loves to compare its usage to the country’s overall radio listenership — it’s not up 8% of total U.S. radio listening — but it’s not a radio company. It’s a streaming music service with comedy as filler.

This isn’t Sirius XM with $300 million a year to invest in programming and content. This isn’t CBS with countless local AM and FM stations to nurture.

Sure, one can argue that at the end of the day Pandora is simply out to sell audio ads just like conventional radio. That’s fair. Pandora’s push to match Sirius XM and Spotify in premium subscription revenue isn’t terrestrial fodder, though that’s more ammo for Karmazin as the ideal CEO as the master of both.

However, Pandora is ultimately a technology company. It’s no surprise that Pandora’s biggest threats on the horizon are tech giants. Google is gearing up to launch a pair of branded digital music services through YouTube and Google Play. Reports continue to surface about Apple negotiating with its record label partners for attractive streaming royalty rates.

Pandora doesn’t need someone to pit Pandora against CBS Radio and other terrestrial offerings. Pandora’s already winning that bout. Sirius XM has been a Wall Street winner over the past four years, but Pandora is also growing a lot faster — in revenue and users — than Sirius XM.

Pandora needs a tech visionary at the helm. The real battle will be about technology as companies jockey for the best apps and auto dashboard integration. Karmazin would turn heads, but he’s not necessarily the leader that Pandora needs right now.

P is for Pandora
Pandora has won millions of devotees among music fans but few supporters on Wall Street. The online jukebox seems to be redefining the way we consume music, a transformation that’s only likely to grow. But …read more

Clear Channel Attacks Pandora and Sirius XM

By Rick Munarriz, Munarriz, The Motley Fool

Filed under:

No one expects the disrupted to be the disruptor, but that appears to be what terrestrial radio giant CC Media Holdings is doing today.

The parent company behind Clear Channel — the AM and FM behemoth with 850 radio stations attracting 243 million monthly listeners across the country — is beefing up its iHeartRadio app. The new “Add-Ins” feature lets listeners of iHeartRadio’s customized stations to have brief local news, weather, and traffic updates inserted into their streams.

In other words, you now have as many as three fewer reasons to listen to Clear Channel‘s traditional radio stations if you have smartphone in a newer model car that allows Bluetooth streaming.

It’s a bold move for Clear Channel to get ahead of the trend, even if it means sacrificing its own business.

Burning your own boats is naturally a risky strategy, but it has paid off handsomely before. Netflix was the country’s leading DVD rental service, but that didn’t stop the video service from taking the lead in the video-streaming revolution. It’s a strategy that played out nicely for Netflix. It now has more than 33 million streaming subscribers worldwide, and that’s roughly twice as many DVD-based accounts it had at its peak.

Clear Channel‘s move will raise the stakes for Pandora and Spotify, and it may even challenge Sirius XM Radio for dashboard attention.

After all, Sirius XM and its lesser terrestrial radio peers have always had the advantage of live content. Sirius XM benefits from its ability to pay up for premium programming, setting itself apart from the music-centric Pandora and Spotify. Traditional radio stations offer local perspectives that even Sirius XM can’t match outside of its traffic and weather updates for major metropolitan markets.

The beauty of Add-Ins is that it’s not just about the local perspective. Add-Ins can be customized. Someone that isn’t hitting the open road may not care about traffic. Someone staying in may not care about the weather. Not everyone cares about local news headlines.

Yes, iHeartRadio’s biggest threat will be to Clear Channel‘s own stations, but the move ultimately raises the bar for Pandora, as the rival free ad-supported service and other premium digital platforms will need to offer more to remain competitive.

Despite Sirius XM being one of the market‘s biggest winners since bottoming out three years ago, there is still some healthy upside to be had if things go right for it — and plenty of room for it to fall if things don’t.

During his presentation, Mr. Grindeland will show how to move beyond the basic two-step of corporate Facebook and Twitter pages. SXSW attendees will learn how to foster a company community, identify internal influencers and convert executives. Mr. Grindeland will address challenges of creating social companies, but will share how to play within the rules of corporate engagement.

If you’re not attending SXSW in person, be sure to follow Mr. Grindeland’s presentation by using #SXSW #gosocial on Twitter.

In addition to Mr. Grindeland’s talk, SXSW goers should plan to attend the “Nowhere to Hide: Can Twitter Fight Corruption” on March 10 at 12:30 PM at the Hyatt Regency Austin, featuring the best-selling authors and industry veterans, Don Peppers and Martha Rodgers, PhD. The duo will address using social media to combat cronyism and widespread business corruption.

Mr. Peppers and Dr. Rogers, founders of the Peppers & Rogers Group, a TeleTech company, will discuss how interactive technologies can be employed to generate a level of transparency sufficient to eliminate the need for costly and intrusive regulatory actions, such as Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank.

Follow the conversation during Mr. Peppers and Dr. Rogers session by using #SXSW #tweetcop on Twitter.

Autosys Scheduler- Running job at particular time

By pk_bohra

Hi Experts,

I am new to Autosys. I created a Autosys box job to run at 10 AM daily. As scheduled, the job starts on time.

There is another box job inside the box. I have scheduled it to run at 11 AM but it kicks off automatically with the main job at 10 AM.

insert_job: Main-job job_type: b
owner: XXXX
permission: gx
date_conditions: 1
days_of_week: all
start_times: “10:01”
alarm_if_fail: 1

<>

insert_job: pull-files job_type: b
box_name: Main-job
owner: XXXX
permission: gx
start_times: “11:30”
alarm_if_fail: 1

I want the pull-files job to start at 11:30 only but it starts at 10:00. Can you please guide me on what I am doing wrong and how to resolve it.

I need the pull-files box to me in Main-job. I don’t want it to be another independent box.

Thanks,
PK
