Laptop or desktop computers and any components within.
Jim is blind and he's been building up the capability of his Amazon Echo with more skills. He wants to be able to dictate and send email. Leo says that Amazon Echo can work with If This, Then That, and he can find out how to send email with it here. There's also this article by the Verge on how to do it.
Nick just moved in with family and they don't have Wi-Fi! He needs a printer, though. Leo says that most printers that do wireless printing do wired printing via USB too. Leo likes Epson. Canon is also a good option. HP's printers are improved, but they only use HP printer cartridges now. Leo recommends going with Epson. And since Nick is going to be printing so infrequently, he can actually shop by price.
(Disclaimer: Epson is a sponsor)
Corey is a gamer and is using a Corsair M95 mouse, but the driver software has "stuck" the buttons and even reinstalling the drivers doesn't fix it. Leo says it may be time for a new mouse. It sounds like the settings may be kept in firmware, though. He could look for a reset button. He should look for a tiny pin hole that will allow for that. But outside of that, if the settings can't be changed through the software, it indicates that the memory may have failed.
Randy has been bit by malware and it won't disappear. Leo says Randy needs to just start over. He should just backup his data, then restart his computer, hold CMD + R, erase the hard drive and reinstall. He should get his data backed up first, though. It's really the safest way to fix his problem.
Alex would like to make a video of his daughter growing up using video and pictures. He was thinking about getting a Mac for it. Leo says Macs have a great video editing program called iMovie that comes with all models for free. Leo expects new desktops to come within the next month or so, but even if he didn't wait, he wouldn't be losing out on performance. Apple's iMac would be ideal, but it would cost him more. He could save some money and get a 21", but Leo recommends spending more and getting the 27" iMac. The larger screen really helps.
Jose wants to know where Leo got his desk. Leo says he got it at officefurniture.com and it's the largest desk made. It's called a 3/4s desk and Leo can control the radio show from there with multiple monitors, a mixer, and much more. Check it out here. It's not cheap at $3,000. But it'll do the job.
Kevin loves to travel with his wife and needs a small laptop that he can use. He was thinking of a Chromebook. Leo says that traveling is problematic with a Chromebook because he doesn't have constant access to the internet. He will have it in the hotels, sure, so that's beneficial. But on a cruise ship, the internet is slow and congested.
Mike has a Google Nexus 6 that isn't updating. He's tried to get Nougat on it, but it won't update. Leo says that the Nexus 6 may not be getting updates anymore, especially through Verizon. Leo says he may have to root the phone to get it updated. Google didn't offer a major update to the Nexus 6, and the security update for March was pulled because it broke Android Pay. They do plan to update to version 7 soon.
Dave wants to know if his old RAID hard drives can be read by his computer. Leo says it depends. If mirrored, maybe. They're identical. But maybe not. He shouldn't make any assumptions. Dave should copy the data off it and then he can take each of them and put them in their own enclosed drives, or use a new array like Synology. Synology also does a disk check periodically to keep it healthy. When he puts them in, they'll check the hard drives as they are building the raid.
Kenny wants to know when new computers will be coming out. Leo says that computers aren't like cars, so there's no annual expectation. There is a boost of new computers that usually come out in Spring and Fall, mostly for kids going back to school, and then the holiday shopping season.
