Johnny Jet on Travel

Episode 1414

Johnny Jet

Leo doesn't understand why people are rude while traveling. Johnny says that people are in a hurry, especially if their flights are delayed and they have to make a connection. But it doesn't make it right.

Travel Tip of the week - If you're flying on Monday, the solar eclipse could do severe damage to your eyes if you look at it from the plane. So make sure you have the right glasses, or simply pull down the shade of your window. There is a special flight that's going to chase the eclipse across the United States and they'll be providing proper glasses for the experience.

Can I use WhatsApp without a phone?

Episode 1413

Jane from Oregon
WhatsApp

Jane wants to know if it's WhatApp or WhatsApp. Leo says there's an "S," so it's WhatsApp. A clever way of saying "what's up?"

Jane is thinking of getting her first smart phone so she can use WhatsApp to make phone calls. Leo says that WhatsApp identifies users by their phone numbers, not their names. So when people ask to use WhatsApp to make a call, that means they want not only their phone number, but also their contact list. Facebook is doing that to cross reference contacts with Facebook contacts, but you can opt out of it when you sign up.
