Sorry if I missed this point in the tips section. My question: So is τι κάνεις only used because of γεια σου? If it was γεια σας would κάνεις change to something else?

That's right; "Γεια σας!" would go with "Τι κάνετε;".

what's the difference between Γεια σου and γεια σας?

Γεια σου refers to a single person, while γεια σας refers to more than one person, (it could refer to one as well, but for formal reasons, ie to someone that is older or a superior.)^.^

    Can one still say « Πῶς ἔχεις » like they did in Socrates`s Athens?

    Um, I think not. :P Unless it's still used in some regions, which is something I am not aware of. Generally speaking, it's not used anymore. :P
