The Samsung Galaxy S6 will be one of the hottest devices on the market when it launches around the world next month. Millions of consumers will rush to purchase the device that takes Samsung in a new direction. The Galaxy S6 features a metal and glass body, two materials that just scream high-end. With that high-end look, however, comes concerns with how durable the device is. That is why protecting the Galaxy S6 will be important for many consumers.
Among the various cases that are capable of protecting the Galaxy S6 is the Spigen Capsule Solid. The accessory maker, which is known for its stylish and quality products, designed the Capsule Solid with simplicity and functionality in mind. Spigen notes that the minimalistic look is met with a gold kickstand for stylish functionality. The primary material used is a flexible, shock-absorbing TPU. There is also a slightly raised lip so the display will not sit on a surface and risk scratching. Nothing about this case is bulky and it looks great keeping things simple.
We want to make sure that your Galaxy S6 is protected, too, and that is why we are giving away the Spigen Capsule Solid case. The exact case we are giving away comes in black (pictured above) and usually retails for $14.99. Just last week, we gave away a similar Spigen case.

Apple today released Safari 8.0.4 for OS X Yosemite, bringing stability and security improvements to the browser. Apple has also released Safari 7.1.4 and Safari 6.2.4 for Mavericks and Mountain Lion users, respectively.
In addition to bringing stability improvements, the update fixes vulnerabilities in WebKit, which could allow a malicious website to unexpectedly terminate an application or execute code. It also fixes an interface inconsistency in Safari that could have allowed attackers to misrepresent URLs.
Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an
unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution
Description: Multiple memory corruption issues existed in WebKit.
These issues were addressed through improved memory handling.
Impact: Inconsistent user interface may prevent users from
discerning a phishing attack
Description: A user interface inconsistency existed in Safari that allowed an attacker to misrepresent the URL. This issue was addressed through improved user interface consistency checks.
Today’s 8.0.4 release comes several months after the release of Safari 8.0.3, which was bundled into the OS X 10.10.2 update in January. The new Safari builds can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.
Mindsense has annoucned that Mail Pilot 2 for Mac is on its way. The app has added a number of new features, including a revamped interface for OS X Yosemite, and will be a free update for existing users.
The interface has been simplified, with your inbox, reminders, drafts, and more all located on the translucent, collapsable source list. Everything is less cluttered, even with the redesigned inbox, which shows more of your messages, letting you get a quick glance of your mail.
We redesigned version 2 to have an intense level of simplicity & focus. We stripped out every unnecessary interface element, collapsed views when they aren’t needed, and redesigned the interface to put your life’s content center stage.
Mail Pilot 2 has made a number of improvements to existing features. Search has been rebuilt for speed, and you will be able to drag and drop attachments inline with your message. The app also allows you click one button to collapse all messages that have been sent by bots, which the app automatically detects.
During the beta for Mail Pilot 2 for Mac, Mindsense is offering a public preview. You can sign up on their website here.
In addition to Mail Pilot 2 for Mac, Mindsense has also announced Mail Pilot for Apple Watch as an update to Mail Pilot 2 for iPhone and iPad. You’ll be able to check your inbox, view notifications, and use the watch’s Glances feature to look at your reminders for the day.
Finally, the developer is working on a new email tool, called Periscope. Details are scarce at the moment, but Mindsense says that the all-new product will give you control over your inbox in a way that can’t be matched by email clients. You can sign up to the Periscope newsletter for more information.
No date has been released for the launch of Mail Pilot 2 for Mac, and Mail Pilot for Apple Watch is expected closer to the actual release of the device on April 24.
iGrann Pro gains ability to auto-hide action bar, improved perfomance and bug fixes in latest update
If your Instagram app of choice happens to be iGrann Pro, you’ll be pleased to know a new update has arrived in BlackBerry World and is readily available for download. This release services as mostly just a maintenance and bug fix release but the change log also notes performance improvements.
Normally, I wouldn’t even bother putting on pants to save 10% but when it comes to electronics, it’s sometimes worth it and such is the case with the BlackBerry Classic. Right now, Amazon (US) is hosting a little bit of a sale on the latest BlackBerry QWERTY designed to meet the needs of productive people who appreciate the speed and accuracy that can only be found with a physical keyboard.
Although there are several two-factor authentication apps for BlackBerry 10 available already having another option to choose from is great and Cyphercor Inc. has now announced their enterprise-grade, cloud-based two-factor authentication solution LoginTC is now available on BlackBerry 10 as a native app.
Whether you need an SMB, Enterprise or even Government account, LoginTC can accommodate the situation with their free starter or paid professional and enterprise accounts allowing you to secure everything from your personal WordPress blog to an enterprise RADIUS server through their connector add-ons.
BlackBerry has now officially issued a security notice for the OpenSSL vulnerability better known as “FREAK”. Early reports had suggested that some BlackBerry operating systems (in addition to Android, iOS, OS X some of which have already been patched) were vulnerable to the attack which could theoretically be used to intercept what should be a secure HTTPS connection and downgrade the encryption to “export-grade”, which is much easier to crack.
When I’m out of the office I always make sure I turn on my out of office rely messages. Normally, when this option is activated on your device, the message sent is what both people outside and inside your organization will see. By default, it enables only the inside your organization message.
For those of you familiar with Microsoft Outlook, you know that it goes one step further and allows users to create a separate reply for both. What this means is that if you created an out of office reply on your device, it required you to either be on Outlook or Outlook Web Access to set up the other reply.
HTC is counting down the hours until it’s big “Uh-Oh” announcement, which will begin on Wednesday, March 18th at 9am PT (11am CT). As of right now, we’re not quite sure what the term “Uh-Oh” means in this case. HTC has posted the countdown video on its site, and you can find it by heading to HTC.com/us/uh-oh.
The HTC event that’s happening tomorrow was alluded to by the company’s own Jason Mackenzie just yesterday. On Twitter, he said:
HTC has a BIG announcement for US customers on Wednesday. #HTCOneM9
While Mackenzie didn’t specify what details will be outed in the announcement, we have a feeling that it has to do with the One M9‘s U.S. availability. Multiple carriers in the United States have announced that they’ll eventually carry the One M9 sometime in “early Spring”, though we haven’t heard any information beyond that.
Last year when HTC announced the One M8, the company made it available exclusively on Verizon that same day. Needless to say, that got customers pretty excited, so we wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what we hear tomorrow. For now that’s just speculation, so we’ll need to wait for official word from HTC during the “Uh-Oh” event. If you’d like to watch the event, you can check out the YouTube video below. If not, Android Authority will surely keep you updated as HTC announces more details.
If the HTC One M9 becomes available tomorrow, will you pick one up?
Another productivity application has been rolled out this week by BlackBerry 10 developers Emberify. Inbox Zero allows the user to snooze emails for future reminder, similar to Mailbox and Inbox by Gmail. Like most apps, it won’t be for everyone, but if removing the risk of not replying to emails is paramount to your business then Inbox Zero could be a life saver.
