Laptop or desktop computers and any components within.
Joanne has a Windows machine and she's getting a message that her hard drive is getting full. Leo says that in Windows, she could see what's taking up space on her computer with the disk clean up utility. She can run disk clean up in Windows and it will wipe out temporary and downloaded files, clear caches, etc. There's also WinDirStat. Leo likes that because it sorts it with color so he can see it at a glance. Then he can choose what to remove.
Bret bought his first Raspberry Pi in a kit and it comes with Linux. Leo says yes, it's called Despian. He can't get his Chrome browser to stream certain websites because they are missing plugins, though. Leo says that's because there is an open system like Linux, some sites refuse to use it due to copyright and piracy worries. He should try using Plex or XBMC as a media server. It could do a better job of handshaking. NOOBS would allow him to choose a different OS like RaspBMC.
Bret is having issues accessing wireless cameras due to blocked ports on his router. Leo says what he wants to do is "port forwarding," and it may be that he'll want to use a higher, five digit port to connect to them. The lower port numbers may either be reserved or in use, like 8080. He should try going higher. He'll also need to use ports that his devices understand. So Bret should look in his manual to see what ports the device supports.
Brandon wants to get a smartwatch to work with his Android phone. Leo says that Android Wear will give him the most choice, but Samsung's Gear 2 and Gear 3 are quite good. The only negative is that he'd need a Samsung Phone to use it.
Adam is looking to get the new MacBook Pro but he's concerned that it isn't high performance enough. Leo says that it does come limited with memory at only 16GB, and he won't be able to upgrade it. So what you buy is what you get. Whether it's right for Adam is subjective. Adam runs Logic and he's worried it won't be enough for him. Leo says Logic does take a lot of RAM, but Leo's used it for Logic and it works for him. That doesn't mean it will work for Adam, though, as his mileage may vary. Leo says that if Adam's iMac, at 32GB of RAM is bogging down, that should tell the tale.
Terry is an artist with Disney Imagineering, and she wants to know what's a good computer to for sketching and artwork. Leo says that Microsoft's Surface Studio was just announced and it's designed with artists like Terry in mind. It has a 28" tilting display, pen stylus, and a new Dial that will enable her to change colors and other options with a turn of the wheel.
John wants to know if he can delete the multiple backups on iCloud. Leo says he can manage his iCloud storage and delete the backups, but he'll want to be sure he has another backup on his computer first. Then once he has that done, he's free to delete them. Then he can turn off the backup to iCloud on those other devices.
Mary had to get her son a computer for school and she put herself in as the admin. Leo says that's a very good idea. She can use herself as the admin and her kid as a limited user. There's also a new feature in Windows 10 which would allow her to give them a pin code to install things without having her type in the password.
Does she need MacAfee for her Antivirus? Leo says no. She should take it off. Windows 10 has its own antivirus which is quite good if she keeps it updated.
Troy updated Windows 10 on his Mac and liked it so much he deleted macOS and now it's not working well. He's trying to reinstall it, but he can't. Leo says that's because he needs the Apple drivers through Boot Camp to run it. So he kind of has to have macOS on the computer, but he can shrink down the partition to as low as it can go. It could also be an issue with the EFI Master Boot recorder.
Dickie D walked by something that he thinks Johnny Jet should get. It's called the Snoo. It helps babies stay asleep. It's basically a baby pen, but it has a swaddling capability to keep them calm and relaxed. It then prevents them from rolling over on their stomach. If the baby starts to cry, the Snoo has microphones to listen and will rock them back to sleep automatically. After 5 minutes, if the baby is still crying, it sends you a text message. It's not cheap, though. It costs $1160.
