Laptop or desktop computers and any components within.
Gino has an old iPod Nano MP3 player, but he can't listen to anything with his headphones. Leo says that it's likely that the headphones are bad or the headphone jack has gone bad. Gino knows that the USB connector works for music, so that leads to the headphone jack being busted.
Dick went to the Special Equipment Manufacturer's Association (SEMA) show and they had a custom 3D printed car! Called the LM3D Swim, the idea is if you have a fender bender, you just reprint what's broken. It uses a combination of plastic and carbon fiber. Leo says it looks like a dune buggy. It's got an electric motor and will be available in 2017 for $53,000. We're getting to the point where anything can be 3D printed and imagine being able to custom design your own car.
Ludlow would like to get a 'nanny cam' of sorts for his elderly mother. Leo says that there's a great product to keep an eye on older parents without intruding, called Lively. It comes with a wrist watch that sends you messages about your parent's activity. It'll tell you if she's taken her meds, if she's getting active, and there's a life alert button. It's ideal for what Ludlow is looking for.
Peter bought an Apple Mac Pro and it keeps beach balling. Leo says he thinks that the Mac Pro is a lemon and even Apple isn't really pushing them anymore. Peter could try zapping the PRAM and refreshing the USB controller. He could even reinstall the OS. Leo did all that and he decided that the Mac Pro is just a bad design.
Wayne is being told his old Gateway PC isn't worth keeping since it's been in storage for a few years. Leo says it's probably running an old version of Windows -- likely XP. Hardware wise, there's probably nothing wrong with it. The reason people are saying Wayne shouldn't use it is because Microsoft isn't updating it, so security is an issue. He can run it safely by doing the following:
Glen is looking for a cheap UPS (uninterruptable power supply). Leo says that he'll get what he pays for and Leo recommends Tripp Lite. He'll want one that is compatible to his OS so that the computer can trigger the UPS to start up.
Ian installed Splashtop remote desktop to his PC so he could control it from his iPad. But now the icons are all spread out in a weird way. Leo says that's a resolution issue between his iPad and the desktop. It doesn't remember his layout, and it'll change it back and forth rather than present it as he set it up. Leo suggests going into the Windows Display settings and changing the resolution to a proper setting for both. But in Windows 10, there's actually two display menus, one for touch screen, the other for the laptop.
Paul is looking to get an iMac or Mac Mini and run Windows on it. Leo says that it really is the best Windows computer out there, so that's a good idea. Paul is wondering when the new models be coming out and can a Mac Mini do it? Leo says that the new iMacs just came out and the Mac Minis were upgraded recently as well, right in the middle of the development schedule. So now's a good time to pull the trigger.
JC upgraded all his lights in his home with LEDs and now he's having issues with radio reception on his AM transistor radio. Leo says not all LEDs emit RF interference, but some do. And in theory, all of them shouldn't because it's illegal. But that doesn't change the fact that it happens, mostly in cheaper varieties.
Jack has the Samsung 850 EVO SSD, and it was working fine until he upgraded to Windows 10. The software that came on the disk worked under Windows 7, but not Windows 10. Leo says he shouldn't need the software that comes on the disk. The SSD should be like any other hard drive, where he should be able to format and run it. He should repartition it and then choose it when he sets up Windows 10.
