Andrew has been noticing that when he shuts down Android apps, they still appear to be running when he goes into Manage Apps. Leo says on all mobile devices, there's no need for programs to actually shut down. On modern versions of Android, iOS, and even on Windows 8.1 or RT, apps don't necessarily close. The operating system just takes care of it on its own. When the user does something else, the OS will halt the CPU for that app, reclaim the memory, and eventually close it. It will still be in the "recent apps" section, though, but that's more for the user's convenience.
Marion listens to Leo's shows on her desktop but wants to also listen to it on her mobile phone when she's driving.

Reilly upgraded to OS X Mavericks and was surprised at how different looking the apps are. He'd like to get some of the older apps back.

Leo says that those are really cool, especially the hologram one.

Alex has a Google Nexus 4 that reset on him recently and he lost all his data. He wants to know the best way to backup and restore the whole phone. The Google sync didn't restore all of his contacts and apps. Leo says that it should, but Alex says half the time it doesn't, and he doesn't know why. It could be a settings issue, so he should look into the backup and restore options to make sure it's enabled.
Aaron's dad got a Samsung Galaxy SIV from Verizon, and he hates the Outlook email app. Leo says he likes K-9 for Outlook.

Larry is an angel investor and wants to know what Leo thinks the future holds for networking with people using technology. Leo says there's a conference in Hawaii called Lobbycon.
