Episode 1464

Greg from Mobile, AL

Greg's granddaughter likes to draw. What can he get her that will work? Leo says that an iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil is fantastic and she could do real artwork with it. There are great apps that she can use on it. There are two sizes, 10.5" and 12.9". It's the closest thing to actually drawing on paper she'll find, especially in that price range. ProCreate is the ideal app for art and drawing.

Mary from Van Nuys, CA

Mary is a Luddite who hates the obsession with technology. She feels that she's being forced down the road of technology and she'd rather not, especially since she's been hacked twice in the last six weeks. Leo says that for what Mary uses a computer for, she doesn't need Windows at all. Mary would be better off with a Chromebook. It's far simpler and not hackable. It's a very simple and highly secure operating system that she can just directly connect via ethernet, and when she turns it on, it will go straight to the web browser.

Episode 1447

Greg from Riverside, CA

Greg has a Mavic Pro Drone and he wants a new tablet to pair with the controller for a larger screen. Leo says that the Mavic is a very nice quadcopter with a nice camera in it. Leo says the iPad Mini is a good one, but the standard iPad would also be good, and larger. He should look to spend between $300 and $400 for it. Sadly, Samsung has stopped upgrading the software for their Galaxy Tab line, so that really won't be a good idea.

If she exits out of FaceTime, however, it works fine. Leo says it may not be Alice's iPad. It may be her daughter's iPad that's having a hardware issue. It sounds like her device has a defective camera. Alice should have her call someone else with FaceTime to see if she can replicate the issue. She can even do that herself just to be sure. Then she'll need to bring it into the Apple Store and have a genius take a look at it.

Leo says that his old iPad has an OS that may not support the current standard anymore. iHeartRadio was probably updated and it simply no longer will work with it. What can he do with it?
