Leo Laporte and Megan Morrone discuss Elon Musk's naive fear of artificial intelligence. NASA is working on a probe that will travel directly into the sun's atmosphere, closer to the surface than any spacecraft before it. Nicola Fox, Project Scientist for the historic Parker Solar Probe, joins us to talk all about it. Speaking of something hot - Bryan Burnett of 'Know How' shows us how to overclock the CPU on your PC. Megan is looking for a new laptop for her daughter heading into the new school year. We take a look at some solid options and let you know what features to look for and how to balance cost vs performance. Waze added a new feature for recording custom voice directions. Jason Howell of 'All About Android' shows us how to make your own and share it with others. And, we answer a 'Call for Help' about finding and getting rid of duplicate files on your Mac and answer some iOS questions in our 'Mail Bag.'
