Boost Mobile customers will be able to buy Samsung's new Galaxy S6 smartphone with no annual contract for $649.99. The new smartphone, and its flashier sibling, the Galaxy S6 Edge, will be released by Samsung April 10 and will also be available through the big four wireless carriers in the United States: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless.

The improvements in the new S6 smartphones over the previous Galaxy S5 model are many, from a chassis made of aircraft-grade aluminum to a higher resolution 5.1-inch, quad HD Super AMOLED display that has about 80 percent more pixels.

It looks highly likely that ex-Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina will take her business and less-extensive political experience and jump into what will be a busy 2016 presidential race.

Speaking on Fox News Sunday March 29, Fiorina said there is a "higher than 90 percent" chance she will run for the Republican nomination, and expects to announce her decision in late April or early May. More than a dozen people are expected to jump into the Republican race for the presidency.

Arista Networks and Supermicro are combining forces to develop tightly integrated data center solutions for hyperscale workloads. The two companies announced March 30 that Supermicro will integrate Arista's networking switch products and EOS+ network operating system into its server and storage hardware to create rack-level offerings that officials said will drive the adoption of software-defined data center  environments.

As opportunities in the emerging Internet of things market grow, so too do the associated security risks. Sami Luukkonen, global managing director for the Accenture's Electronics and High Technology business, is seeing vendors of all shapes and sizes coming to his organization asking about IoT, and they're all worried about security.

For the full potential of IoT to be realized, it needs to be secured, according to Luukkonen. While open ports on devices are a risk, simply locking down ports is not the entire solution to the IoT security challenge.
