iPad, Android, Kindle, or Windows tablets.
Joe wants to know how much he should spend on a tablet to get a decent one. Leo says not a lot. The Nexus 7 is $200 and it runs great. Samsung is a great place to look as well. The best place for a good tablet, though, is Google itself. That way he'll get updates as they come out.
George bought a new Microsoft Surface Book 3. He was hoping it would be more consistent with Windows 10. How can he turn off the log in and just have it always logged in? Leo says he can type the Windows key + R, and type "Users" and disable the password requirement for logging in. George could also go into the power settings and have it not log out or go to sleep as fast.
Becky's new tablet freezes up every time she tries to connect to the internet. Leo says to try connecting to another internet portal like a Wi-Fi hotspot and see what happens. If it doesn't work there either, then there's definitely an issue. It sounds like a hardware problem. The antenna may have gotten loose or a connection may have broken. Since Becky is on a budget, Leo recommends going to Samsung and looking at their refurbished section. She can save some money that way.
Brian is having trouble syncing to Outlook on his laptop, iPhone, and iPad. Leo suggests going into iOS settings and removing the Outlook sync account. He could also install the Outlook app.
It could also be an issue with his Exchange server at work, especially if other coworkers are having issues. He should use Microsoft's app on the laptop. Then remove the Exchange server from iOS devices and reinstall it. It's likely a network issue with work. Brian should talk to his IT guys, as they may have to configure it.
Richard has a Google Nexus 9 and signed up for the beta program for Google N, but he can't get past Google. Has be bricked it? Leo says no, he can't really brick it that way. Leo says to go into recovery mode and back out of it. He'll also have to wipe his data and cache. Richard will have to download the drivers, do an ADB, and then download and install the Nexus 9 image. He can also try reinstalling the N Dev again, since maybe it was a bad download.
Walt is a Ham and wants a Windows Tablet that can handle avionics while he's sailing, and Ham radio software. Leo says that the Surface Pro 3 may be a better option than the Surface Pro 4. It has GPS in the LTE model, while the Surface Pro 4 does not. Asus makes a really nice one as well. Also, the Surface Pro 3 is on sale right now.
Paul uses the iPad Pro for presentations and wants to have a remote to control his Powerpoint presentation. Leo says that if he has an iPhone or Apple Watch, he can use it to sync to the iPad remotely.
Another option is a Bluetooth clicker that supports Powerpoint. He could also just make the move to Keynote. Doctor Mom uses a Satechi Bluetooth Smart Pointer Mobile Presenter and Remote Control.
Jonathan knows someone who lost an iPad in the snow and found it months later. It actually turned on! Leo says Jonathan is incredibly lucky. Leo says to make sure it's fully dried out before turning it on again. He should stick it in a bowl of rice and let it sit for a week. This will draw out all the moisture. There may also be corrosion.
Noah wants to know if Apple will go to USB Type-C connectors on the iPhone or iPad. Leo says no. They just moved to Lightning connectors on the iPhone or iPad. They did put USB Type-C on its MacBooks, but don't look for Type-C on iOS any time soon.
