Laptop or desktop computers and any components within.
Mike is having issues with USB thumb drives he plugs into his computer. The computer won't mount it. Leo says that the flash drive is a cheap device and it can fail anytime in strange ways. Leo says that's a sign it's broken so just throw it away.
Nolan's elderly mother needs a way to make phone calls with her voice. Leo says that Amazon Echo will do it with a device called Echo Connect. The Google Assistant will also do it. Both Google and Amazon also offer devices that have screens and cameras so you can make video calls.
Sam recently completed his test drive of the Audi eTron, a mid-size electric crossover vehicle. It's Audi's first all-electric vehicle. Audi expects by 2025, that 30% of all sales will be electric vehicles. Sam says that it also charges about 30% faster using an Electrify America charger, vs. a standard charger. Very fast charging. Up to 80% in 30 minutes. The eTron drives very well, smooth ride with almost no wind noise. Exceptionally quiet. If you love driving Audi's this car is for you.
According to Zing Toys “Axe Throwing Competitions” are a ‘giant factor’ Well you do not need to fret concerning the threat of throwing an actual axe as a result of a brand new toy known as Zax means that you can convey all of the laughs of axe throwing in a secure means! A 12-inch comfortable foam Zax sticks to any flat floor (like partitions or glass) because of its three uniquely designed suction cups. (Well, now not always as you can see as I take a look at within the video we shot at Toy Fair.
Jeff has reached the end of the line on his iMac since it won't work with updates anymore. So he's looking at buying a new Mac. Should he get an iMac or a Mac Mini? Leo says that he's a real fan of the new Mac Mini because it has a ton of connectors, including Thunderbolt 3, so he can run an external GPU if he wants. He can also upgrade the RAM. He can save some money and get his own screen, keyboard, and mouse. He can also get a better webcam or connect a video camera to do streaming.
Kathy dropped her external hard drive on the floor and now it's not working. It wasn't even that far. Leo says that's just bad luck: it's likely a broken arm or scratched sector. DriveSavers could fix it, but it's very expensive. And if they can't, then nobody can. This is why you back up. Leo recommends a 3-2-1 backup strategy: three backups, on two different formats, one off-site.
Scott imaged his hard drive using EaseUS. Now he's trying to restore it to a larger hard drive, and it's reading as a smaller size. Leo says that he can repartition the hard drive using EaseUS. There are switches he can enable to do it differently. Or, use Windows Key + X: he will get the Windows 10 partition manager. From there, he can repartition it in the action menu.
Nikki's laptop is in airplane mode and she can't get out of it. Leo says that it may have been enabled using a function key and you have to re-enable it the same way. The switch may also be stuck. Keyboards can get dirty. It may also not be a function key. It could be a hard switch on your laptop.
Steve is traveling to Mexico and wants to know what's the best way to stay connected with data. Leo recommends PrepaidwithData.wikia.com. It'll also tell you the best hotspots. Get a MyFi card and you get LTE with up to five devices connected. What about phone calls? Leo says that most companies actually offer you a better deal by adding Mexico and Canada to your plan.
Richard wishes he could name his Google Assistant something else so it wouldn't go off when he doesn't want it to. Leo says that the Hey Google in the mobile phones can. So why can't the assistant? It may be that it just doesn't have a powerful enough processor, and as such, it couldn't read it fast enough. It's likely comparing waveforms with what it has on the device, and then, activates. Then again, it may just be marketing.
