Gloria said she tried to upgrade to Windows 10 a few years ago, but it wouldn't let her. Leo says that things have changed, and Microsoft really wants users to move to Windows 10. So he recommends trying again. Here's an article how - https://www.zdnet.com/article/heres-how-you-can-still-get-a-free-windows-10-upgrade/
John has Windows 7 Home, and he knows he has to update to Windows 10. But how does it do it? Leo says that the first thing to do is get the Windows 10 upgrade. The best-kept secret is that it's still free from Microsoft. Google Microsoft Windows Media Creation Tool. Put it on a 16GB USB key and install it on top of Windows 7. It'll authenticate automatically, and you're good to go.
James has an issue where Windows will boot up with the wrong drivers after a feature update. Leo says that during an update, Windows will select what it thinks is the best driver for your hardware. Even if you prefer to use the manufacturer drivers if you built the computer yourself, you're going to need to update your drivers from the manufacturer, and they may not have updated it yet for the latest feature update. So check every once in a while for all the latest drivers.
Randy got an Epson 2750, but he can't get it to print in color. Leo says that Epson will do a few nozzle cleans, before running a thorough nozzle clean. It'll take up a good portion of ink, but with the EcoTanks, you have plenty. Leo says that Inkjets tend to clog when not used regularly. Epson says that they coat their heads with a special coating to prevent clogging, but if you rarely use color printing, even with that, the printer will clog up due to dried ink in the head. It's just the nature of inkJet printing. So if you don't print at least once a week, maybe an inkjet isn't for you.
Sam joins Leo to talk about the latest over the air updates by Tesla. Tesla recently removed auto drive from a used car bought by a user, which caught a ton of bad press. Tesla's position was that the upgrade was attached to the driver, not the car itself. But eventually, they relented and gave the new owner back the advanced feature. This is why Sam advises people to buy an electric vehicle based on what it can do today, not what it may do down the road because new features will likely be required to pay a fee to enable.

Roger really doesn't want to move to Windows 10. He likes Windows 7. Leo says he has to bite the bullet and upgrade. Security alone makes it vital and since Microsoft isn't supporting Windows 7 anymore, he runs the risk of getting infected every day and infecting others. Windows 10 gets updated with security patches every Tuesday. So it's just important. The good news is, if he already has Windows 7, he can download the Windows 10 Media Installer and upgrade for free. He will then have a legitimate copy of Windows 10.
Joe wants to know about digital scales. Leo uses the WiThings Scale, which also measures heart rate and BMI. But it doesn't take blood pressure. The Body Cardio is also a good one for blood pressure. There's something called the HiGi Machine that will do all of it.
Logan wants to sell his old laptop and build a new gaming PC. Leo says for gaming, he will want to get a PC that has an NVIDIA GPU. Fastest one he can afford. But ironically, the Processor is less important than the GPU now. Leo recommends going to PCPerspective and look at the Hardware Leaderboard. It shows what is the current best configuration by price point. That'll give him a good idea of how to build the computer he wants. Intel or AMD Ryzen?
