Console gaming (XBOX, Playstation, Nintendo, etc) or PC gaming.
Julien says that ESPN is going to start covering "eSports." Leo says that ESPN sees how popular Twitch is, with how many people watch video games being played, and they see the reason for it. But many of the sports casters say it isn't sports. Will ESPN have a mutiny on their hands?
Vincent's wife is blind and he's thinking of using a Harmony remote and the screen reading app on her iPhone to use it. How does that reader work? Leo says that's a great idea and some phones have free built-in infrared, making the phone a smart remote. The Harmony remote can talk to the phone via Bluetooth, though. The iPhone also has great accessibility features, if the app developers take advantage of them. But Leo says that the iPhone is the best option.
Jonathan is a gamer and he just discovered how much more powerful a PC is for gaming than consoles like the PS4 or XBox One. Leo says it's true. PCs can have more powerful processors in both CPU and graphics. There are better screens, and keyboards and mice are more accurate. If Jonathan is a hardcore gamer, PC is the way to go.
Dave wants to know why he can't watch YouTube in higher resolutions through the PS3. He only gets 240. Leo says that's ugly. The issue could be bandwidth.
Dave may want to try using the YouTube app, and not the browser. He can download the YouTube App from the Sony Playstation store. That will always do better than the browser.
Devon wants to get an iBuyPower Gaming PC. Is that a good brand? Leo says that iBuyPower makes great computers and at $495, it's a great deal. The games that Devon wants to play aren't really all that demanding, but still, it depends on what graphics processor and card he's going to get. For video games, the GPU is the workhorse. The NVidia GE Force GT610 is a good one.
Jennifer would like to record video from her Nintendo 3DS and post it on YouTube. Leo says she can get a 3DS capture board which can then route the video signal to her PC to record, edit and upload. This requires an original 3DS to work though, so be aware of that.
Ivan is a hardcore gamer and he uses an Alienware laptop. But his laptop has been getting up past 200 degrees. Leo says that's not a good thing. It's normal for a laptop to heat up with a lot of hard core use, but not that much. Leo suspects that Ivan's GPU fan isn't working. It could also be that the thermal paste wasn't applied correctly. Leo advises going back to the store with it and having them fix the issue.
Joshua owns and operates Minecraft servers and he wants to know what the future has in store for online gaming. Leo says that since Microsoft bought Minecraft, it's possible that Microsoft could require Minecraft be run from Azure. But Leo doesn't think there's much cause to worry because the Minecraft culture is very independent. Gamers won't really feel Microsoft's presence in Minecraft for at least a year, but there's not much cause for concern. Since online gaming is social by nature, the future is bright.
