Po isn't thrilled about the trend of surveillance in this country and how easy it could be for them to listen in on cellphones. Leo says that the courts have held that metadata (where he is or who he's calling) isn't subject to a warrant. So the government can make a request for a "pen register," pay a fee and then they can know someone's exact whereabouts.
Adam is in the military and he's going to be heading to Texas while he leaves his daughter behind with her mother. He'd like to keep in contact with her via the Internet, but she doesn't have it where she's going to live. Leo says there's always the Library or a free public Wi-Fi hotspot. If her Android tablet has an SD card slot, he could send audio/video on an SD card and share it that way.
Rob bought an old church and he's remodeling it. He wants to install Ethernet to create a network in home. Leo says that if Rob wants Internet everywhere, the ideal time to lay down ethernet cable is when the walls are open. However, pretty much everything we do now is wireless. For music, he'll want to do wirelessly. A simple Wi-Fi analysis will show him whether Wi-Fi in his home is crowded or not. If it is, then going back to wired connections is a great idea.
Daniel has so many social media outlets for his business, and it's becoming a full-time job managing all of it. Leo says that if he has a business, he should at least have a web page, and a presence on Facebook and Twitter. Pinterest is good for selling goods. Google Plus is good, but it's not widespread at all. Twitter is great for communicating with customers, though. LinkedIn is good for finding employees. But at the end of the day, it's best to just keep it simple. YouTube is great for video, but he's better off driving people to his own webpage.
Rob wants to know the best way to share large legal documents and photos. Leo says that ShareFile is a great option for lawyers, but might not be so great for their clients. OneDrive would work. He would need an account to do it, though. There used to be a great option called DropIO, but Facebook bought it and killed the service. BitDrop is a good one. He'd have to run his own website to make it work.
Victor wants to know about IP version 6. The way IP version 6 works is like the current system of numbers, but instead of a dotted "quad", which is four 8 bit digits surrounded by dots, they've added two more to make it a dotted "sextet." This allows for a large amount of IP addresses.
Johnny Jet is in paradise and when the news of the Malaysia Airlines MH370 disappearance came out, he did a ton of research. He put up this resource page to stay up to date. Johnny also reminds us that airline travel is still the safest way to travel.
Colin wants to know about Evernote. Leo says that Evernote is an amazing app and it's free. He can buy a premium version, but it's not really necessary. It will allow him to sync all of his devices in the cloud. He can insert images, video, sound, and more. It's a great app. Lifehacker has some great tips on how to best use it.
Ron is getting email popups from the "FBI." Leo says the FBI would never email him, they'd visit him directly. He thinks it's probably someone trying to turn him off from his ex, like a roommate or a new boyfriend. If the emails get more aggressive, including death threats, then Leo advises going to the police and showing them the emails. If he feels he's in danger, he should have the right to be protected.
