Lee is looking at Bluetooth headphones. Leo says that Apple is making the move towards Bluetooth headphones and there's plenty of options out there already. Leo says he'll want to make sure his headphones are at least A2DP profile supported.
Tom has an iPod Touch and wants to know if he can do anything on it like Facetime. Leo says sure. It's essentially an iPhone without the phone. So Tom will be able to do VOIP and video calling. He can use apps like Tango, Skype, Viber and several others. He'll have to buy credits to call regular numbers.
Susan is looking to get a new laptop and she's thinking of a Chromebook. Leo says a Chromebook is a great choice. She wants one that can run Android apps. Leo says that most do that, but she'll want to get one with a touch screen since Android apps are driven by touch.
Mike's XBox One is losing its Wi-Fi connection after about an hour. It won't even work with a hard wire. Leo says it could be a bad Wi-Fi radio, but that wouldn't have anything to do with the ethernet chip. There could be an issue with the DHCP host protocol. DHCP assigns IP addresses and they are dynamic, so they can expire.
Richard gets frustrated with customer service at Comcast. Leo says that support is expensive and companies are trying to cut support because of it. More and more are just chatbots. That's why Leo goes to the store to talk to real humans.
Tim wants to know Leo's thoughts on Channel Master. Leo says it's a DVR for over-the-air antenna broadcasts. Leo doesn't get over-the-air broadcast TV because of where he lives, but he hears good things. Now he's learned that Channel Master will also stream video through Roku. That's pretty cool. If he's in the city and can get a good over-the-air signal, he will get the best broadcast quality because it's uncompressed. The key is to be close and within line of site of the main channels.
Bernardi says that he's a Linux system admin, and he's thinking about going with a MacBook Pro for his next computer. It's very expensive with the dollar exchange, though. We're talking $10,000! Leo says that's crazy! Most of that cost is a tariff to the Brazilian government. This is why Apple's been considering opening a plant in Brazil.
Dennis bought a new Dell XPS 9500 computer. Leo says that Dell XPS laptops are a very good choice. Dennis has an issue with the sound on it, though. He's also having problems streaming video. Leo says it could be the sound card but his first instinct is to look at the operating system. Dennis should update the drivers. He may even have to try reinstalling Windows. Then if that doesn't work, he can think about hardware.

Doug has iOS 9.5.3 installed, and when he taps on the home button, the whole screen drops down. Leo says it's a feature that allows you to use your phone one handed because the iPhone 6S is larger than the previous iPhones. It's supposed to do that whenever you double tap the home button, without actually pressing it down.
