The New Screen Savers (Audio)

On 'The New Screen Savers' recorded on Saturday, November 3, 2018, with Leo Laporte and Patrick Norton:

  • Leo and Patrick discuss how passcodes are protected under the Fifth Amendment; and the new iPad Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini that was announced at Apple's October event.
  • Apparently, iPhones can be rendered useless by helium so Leo tries to drown his iPhone XR with a balloon while talking to iFixit co-founder Kyle Wiens, who has done tests of their own and explains what causes it to happen.
  • Patrick reviews Caavo's 2nd-gen Control Center which unifies your home theater with a voice-activated universal remote.
  • Leo gives his review for two Acer laptops. One is 'the world's thinnest notebook,' the Swift 7; and the other is a large 15" Chrome OS 2-in-1, the Chromebook Spin 15.
  • OnePlus continues to push the envelope in getting flagship features in an affordable phone with the OnePlus 6T. Jason Howell gives his review.

Hosts: Leo Laporte and Patrick Norton


Guests: Kyle Wiens and Jason Howell
