On this episode of The New Screen Savers for Saturday, January 20, 2018, with Leo Laporte and Jason Howell: 
  • Edward Snowden has a new app for Android called Haven that turns your phone into a portable security system. Nathan Freitas, Director of the Guardian Project joins us to talk about how they created it and why.
  • Steve Gibson joins us to explain his latest freeware InSpectre and how it looks for Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities.
