Internet and Web
Rob bought an old church and he's remodeling it. He wants to install Ethernet to create a network in home. Leo says that if Rob wants Internet everywhere, the ideal time to lay down ethernet cable is when the walls are open. However, pretty much everything we do now is wireless. For music, he'll want to do wirelessly. A simple Wi-Fi analysis will show him whether Wi-Fi in his home is crowded or not. If it is, then going back to wired connections is a great idea.
Daniel has so many social media outlets for his business, and it's becoming a full-time job managing all of it. Leo says that if he has a business, he should at least have a web page, and a presence on Facebook and Twitter. Pinterest is good for selling goods. Google Plus is good, but it's not widespread at all. Twitter is great for communicating with customers, though. LinkedIn is good for finding employees. But at the end of the day, it's best to just keep it simple. YouTube is great for video, but he's better off driving people to his own webpage.
Rob wants to know the best way to share large legal documents and photos. Leo says that ShareFile is a great option for lawyers, but might not be so great for their clients. OneDrive would work. He would need an account to do it, though. There used to be a great option called DropIO, but Facebook bought it and killed the service. BitDrop is a good one. He'd have to run his own website to make it work.
Victor wants to know about IP version 6. The way IP version 6 works is like the current system of numbers, but instead of a dotted "quad", which is four 8 bit digits surrounded by dots, they've added two more to make it a dotted "sextet." This allows for a large amount of IP addresses.
Johnny Jet is in paradise and when the news of the Malaysia Airlines MH370 disappearance came out, he did a ton of research. He put up this resource page to stay up to date. Johnny also reminds us that airline travel is still the safest way to travel.
Colin wants to know about Evernote. Leo says that Evernote is an amazing app and it's free. He can buy a premium version, but it's not really necessary. It will allow him to sync all of his devices in the cloud. He can insert images, video, sound, and more. It's a great app. Lifehacker has some great tips on how to best use it.
Ron is getting email popups from the "FBI." Leo says the FBI would never email him, they'd visit him directly. He thinks it's probably someone trying to turn him off from his ex, like a roommate or a new boyfriend. If the emails get more aggressive, including death threats, then Leo advises going to the police and showing them the emails. If he feels he's in danger, he should have the right to be protected.
Betsy likes to play online poker. Leo says that the best way to learn how to play poker is online, although you can't play for money anymore in the US. Betsy says she's having trouble getting online and doesn't have internet in her building. Can she use her cellphone? Leo says that Betsy can use a MiFi card from Verizon. Then she could use that to go online via 4G.
Craig has a ton of adware on his PC from installing software. Leo can't stress enough how important it is to be careful where he gets software. Since he doesn't really know what he has, he could have opened himself up to far more bad things. Leo suggests turning off all extensions, deleting them from his extensions folder, and running as a limited user. Look in "add/remove programs" for entries he doesn't recognize and remove them.
