Jay has an iPhone 5s and his new Mac doesn't recognize any photos from before he bought the 5S. Leo says that there are plenty of alternatives including Google+, Microsoft One Drive, DropBox (only 2GB), and Flickr. There's a ton of options and some are free.
Daryl also wants to know about music software and what's the best platform. Leo says that a lot of people use Macs. Logic Pro would take him to another level. Ableton's Live is great for live performances. DJs have taken to the iPad, which has a lot of apps for music. FruityLoops is a good app for DJing. There's also an option for Windows: Cakewalk.
Beats by Dre are popular headphones. Beats owns MOG as well, which is a music streaming service. The latest rumor is that Apple would buy them for $3.2 billion, which would be the largest acquisition Apple's ever made. If this is true, Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre himself would have executive positions at Apple.
Don has an iPhone that he's jailbroken. But he picked up a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and he wants to be able to move his music over to it. Leo says the key is whether the music is copy protected or not. If they were bought recently, then there should be no issue with copying them over.
Since Leo was talking about Neil Young's Pono player earlier in the show, Tom wanted to know if Leo had heard about Bob Weir's Tamalpais Research Institute, or "TRI." Bob Weir has built a beautiful state of the art streaming performance studio in Marin County in California. The Greatful Dead have always been huge supporters of high quality audio. They were notorious for having the best stage sound system anywhere. Bob is continuing the tradition by broadcasting live video and audio concerts in high quality. It's at tristudios.com.
A site called "Forgotify" will find songs that are on Spotify, but have not yet been played by anyone.

Dwayne has 20,000 songs on iTunes and spent hundreds of hours collecting songs. But he isn't sure Carbonite is the best place to store his music. Leo says it isn't. It would take too long to upload: 100GB would take about 3 months. So Leo recommends Google Music. It's free and he'll be able to keep 25,000 there.
Beyonce released a surprise album with great success on social media sites. Each song has an accompanying video, and there were tons of photos shared on Instagram as well. But since the album was sold exclusively on iTunes the first week, other retailers including Amazon, Target, and other retailers are now saying they won't carry it. Walmart will be carrying it, however, because Beyonce was shopping there for Blue Ivy. She also was giving 750 $50 gift cards to people at Walmart. The album sold 600,000 units in the US first 3 days and 820,000 worldwide.
