I am just getting used to my Apple iPhone, which I love. Then along comes articles like this! This is from If you are a Samsung Galaxy user, check this out and feel good that you waited!

Galaxy S6 Vs iPhone 6

Beginning in two weeks on April 10th, we’re in store for an epic battle of the sixes. Apple’s iPhone 6 burst onto the scene this past September and helped Apple rack up more profit in the holiday quarter than any other company has ever earned in a three-month period. iPhone 6 sales are still going strong according to estimates, but the phone will finally see some real competition next month when the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge hit store shelves.

All three of these phones are fantastic options, but there are a few key features on Samsung’s new handsets that could make iPhone 6 owners a bit jealous. In this post, you’ll find 10 of the most impressive things the Galaxy S6 can do that Apple’s latest iPhone can’t.

5 ways to test your computer's security

More good stuff from guess who? Yup, Kim Komando. She has been at this a long time and has had great success. She apparently has grown to the point where she has a top notch technical staff - in addition to herself - who spend time researching things that seem to apply to all of us. And most of what she publishes on her web site seems to be very timely. I recommend a daily visit to her web site.

5 ways to test your computer's security

 "You can't turn on the news without hearing about some scary new computer security problem. Just in 2015, we've already had major Windows security flaws, Adobe Flash security flaws, Lenovo's Superfish scandal and more.

That doesn't even include the threats that are always out there, such as hackers, snoopers, viruses, phishing attacks, and I could go on. If you don't think computer security is a big deal, think again.

So you've grabbed some great security software for your system. You've encrypted your Wi-Fi network to keep out criminals. Maybe you know the latest information about using the Adobe Flash plugin safely.

Those are all good things, and I highly recommend them, but the big question is whether it worked. Is your computer and information really safe?

If you don't test your security, you might have a wrong setting or unpatched flaws and never know it. Companies regularly hire hackers to test their security for them. Fortunately, you can do it yourself for free."
