Unless you get an Android phone that's advertised as a "pure Google experience," chances are your Android phone has some pre-installed software that often is referred to as "bloatware." This means it has extra programs or features that are installed over top of Android, and in many cases cannot be removed. Samsung's recent phones have particularly suffered from this. Fortunately, it's fairly easy to at least hide these unwanted extras.
Dan wants to get his wife a tablet so she can check her email at work. Leo says that there are some excellent Windows tablets, and many like the Dell Venue Pro. This can run the full version of Windows too, which means it will run regular Windows programs. Dan is a bit sad that Windows doesn't have the same app capability as Android or iOS, though. Will there be ever be a Windows tablet that can run Android? Leo says no.
Lily has a Samsung Galaxy Note 3. She loves the huge screen but says that there's a huge learning curve to it. Leo says that's likely because of all the pointless stuff that Samsung has loaded it up with. S-Voice is an example of that. Leo prefers Google's voice control. She can disable it in the Android's "Language and Input" settings. Choose "US English" as the default language. Lily could even root the phone or just tap the microphone button in the search bar and speak into that.
Since Apple released iOS 7, there hasn't been a jailbreak available for it -- Until now. But it doesn't come with a recommendation from Leo. There's only ever really been one reason to jailbreak an iPhone, and that's to install apps that haven't been approved by Apple. Instead, all previous iOS jailbreaks have come with an app store called "Cydia," which is well-known and fairly safe, or at least as safe as a jailbroken phone can be. The new iOS 7 jailbreak, however, comes with an unknown secret Chinese app store installed.
