Dave wants to get a backup camera that has infrared and 180 degree scope. He's seen them on Amazon for $250 down to $39. Leo says that most of them are made by Chinese companies and sold to American companies. Amazon fulfills it, so it's a good idea to buy from them, and they'll stand behind them. Dave should check the reviews from Amazon and he'll see how good people think they are.
Ubervita, a nutritional supplement firm, said that they want to know who's publishing negative reviews on Amazon.com of their products.

Leo got his iPhone 5s when he got home from vacation and his thumbnail review is that he loves the Touch ID authentication. It's really easy to use. He also likes that he can make purchases without having to input a password every time.

Leo finally setup the Sonos Playbar Soundbar, and while it's overpriced, it was very easy to setup. Leo was able to sync all of the speakers wirelessly, add a "party mode," where all speakers play the same sound, or movie mode that simulates surround. It can also connect to the Sonos woofer. Thumbs up, but it is pricey.
