Laptop or desktop computers and any components within.
Gregory has an RV and wants to know if he should get satellite for it that will give him faster WiFi. Leo says he could, but it would cost him a lot of money and would be a hassle to re-position the dish often. The future is in LTE, and it's also more affordable. Often times it's faster than home internet as well. He can get a WiFi device and he will then have access to over five different devices. Leo recommends Google Fi because it has three different ISPs on the same device and switches to the one that is better. And he can pay as he goes with it.
Dale says that the Fuji X-T2 and he says that most adjustments can be made without the menu settings. They have dials and buttons like the old days. Leo says that seems to be the trend now, going back to physical dials to make changes while shooting, and you can even reassign and program buttons for your most often used settings. It's mostly in higher end cameras, though. Leo says that they look like the old retro style film cameras and he loves that.
In what Leo calls a simple application of machine learning and data translation, Google Home can now make phone calls to any number in your phone's contacts. Leo adds this is the benefit to offering free services like Google Voice and Google Photos. It's able to take all that data that Google has access too and apply it to applications that make our lives easier.
Chris wants to know what Leo thinks of the new Max-Q design for Nvidia powered laptops. Leo says it's for hardcore gamers. But it is thin and light, and uses less power to save battery life. It's still about 10-15% slower than the desktop GTX1080. But for laptop performance, it's impressive. And at $1,000, it had better be.
Kevin has a point of sale touch screen system and it blacked out right in the middle of sale and didn't come back. What can he do? Leo says that when a screen goes out, it could sometimes be the backlight. If he looks at an angle, he may see a very dim screen. But if it's totally black, that means that the screen completely died. Or it may be a bad cable. Leo suggestions changing out the cable to start. If it's proprietary hardware and software, then it's not going to be user repairable.
Clarence says that if you grab the wrong pair of welding glasses, it'll be just like having a huge flash going off in your eyes. So he advises taking a quick glance at the sun with the glasses on, then look away. If it looks like a camera flash, then you have the wrong glasses. Leo agrees. The damage the sun does to your eyesight will never heal. It's permanent and it's not worth risking for two minutes.
Ben wants to enjoy the total eclipse but all the glasses are sold out. So he's looking at welding glasses, but can't find 14 grade lenses. Can he stack two 8 grade lenses together? Leo says he doesn't think that they are additive and it won't work that way. It's certainly not worth taking the risk. The best place to find out what to wear is the NASA Eclipse Website.
Bill says that exposed Xray film is good for viewing the solar eclipse and if you can find some wasted film from a doctor's office, you can use it. Leo doesn't recommend doing this, and viewers should consult the NASA Eclipse Website for how to properly and safely view it.
Amazon has issued a recall alert and cancelled all orders for glasses told to view the upcoming solar eclipse. The glasses were counterfeit and has the proper ISO certification printed on the items, even though they weren't. Not knowing which ones were real and which were counterfeit on it's face, Amazon decided to cancel ALL sales and issue a recall.
