Watch Doctor Bird from California Comments

Doctor Bird just bought a brand new Toyota Rav 4, but it only comes with Apple Carplay. How can he get his Android phone to connect and get recognized for navigation? Leo says that is a bad trend, and Sam says that most car makers are making players that will support both. Sam says that if you're ordering a 2019 model, it should support Android Auto as well. If it doesn't, an over the air software update should fix it. The dealer may also be able to reflash the system to give Android Auto support. Also, Android Auto is separate from in-vehicle navigation. It should project your Maps app to the screen.  Another option is to go to Google Maps; you can download maps for where you're going, and be able to navigate with offline maps via GPS. And it won't use any data.

Watch Gary from Cheektowaga, New York Comments

Gary uses TMobile's home service for $50 a month. Speeds fluctuate from 25-115 MBps. Leo says that's pretty usable. Gary likes YouTube TV, but TMobile thinks he's in another city, and so he can't get local TV. Leo says that's the problem with mobile-based internet. It's based on where your IP is located. It's a universal problem because people trust geo-located IP and it's never accurate. Leo says that there may be a way by contacting YouTube.

​Doctor Mom says that YouTube now has a page where you can tell YouTube TV where you are.

Watch Steve from Beaumont, CA Comments

Steve bought a new iMac with a Fusion Drive, but it seems as slow as his 2013 iMac. Leo says it is! It's a common problem with fusion drives. Leo says that you could have an SSD installed to replace that Fusion drive. However, you don't want to try and do it yourself because you would have to lift your screen off with a giant suction cup to get to the hard drive. You can go to MacSales.com for the hard drive you want.

Apple is now allowing third-party, Apple Authorized repairs. So you can find a technician in your area that is authorized to install the hard drive at a more affordable cost than the Apple Store.

Watch Jay from Providence, North Carolina Comments

Jay wants to know how he can avoid cross-site Scripting attacks. Leo says that you could turn off javascript, but that would make most of the web unusable. Leo uses UBlockOrigin, which is nominally an ad blocker. But it can block cross-site scripting. A good browser like Firefox will protect you as well. In the security settings, you can block a lot of things like cross-site scripting. And load a minimal set of extensions as well.

Watch Jim from Louisville, KY Comments

Jim builds computers, and he's been trying to get a friend's netbook updated to Windows 10. But it doesn't work with it. Leo says that the computer is probably not compatible with Windows 10. It's a cheaper computer that was designed to work only with the older OS of Windows 8. Leo suspects that the storage memory isn't enough to upload Windows 10 and install it. It's just too lightweight. 

Watch Michael from Wooster, MA Comments

Michael wants to know if Leo knows anything about Windows Pro N. He bought a refurbished computer with it. Leo says it's a European version of Windows. Michael also says it's a trial version of Windows. Leo says the guy Michael bought the computer from, didn't want to pay for an official Windows license, and eventually, that version of Windows will stop working. Michael will probably be able to upgrade on top of that version, and you can buy an OEM version of Windows from NewEgg for about $100-150. Get the 64-bit version. 

Watch Al from Los Angeles, CA Comments

Al uses a VPN with YouTube TV on a Linux computer because he doesn't live in California anymore. Sometimes it gets disconnected and YouTube thinks he's somewhere else. Leo says that YouTube may decide to block your VPN. Netflix does that.
