Top 10 most read: Galaxy S6 v HTC One M9, Simda botnet smashed, skills shortage

There are so many top-of-the-range smartphones on the market, and choosing which one is best for you is a tough call. So it’s no surprise to see V3 readers flocking to another head-to-head review, as we pitted Samsung’s and HTC’s latest models against each other.

It was a hard-fought battle, but there was a clear winner so head over to the review to see which phone emerged victorious.

Elsewhere, there was success for the security community as the Simda botnet was taken down by a coordinated cross-industry effort, although warnings have already arrived proclaiming that it will return stronger than ever.

Meanwhile, more warnings were issued about the skills shortage looming in Europe. A shortfall of as high as 800,000 is expected by 2020, according to European Commission Digital Single Market chief Andrus Ansip, unless something is done.

One answer, according to security consortium ISC2, is for organisations to move more services to the cloud as it enables them to outsource the skills required for IT management to dedicated firms, rather than having to manage everything in-house.
