On this episode of The New Screen Savers for Saturday, February 17, 2018, with Leo Laporte and Megan Morrone:

  • What makes smartphone cameras so good? Rishi Sanyal from DPReview joins us to compare two of the best, the iPhone X and Pixel 2 XL, and discuss computational photography. 
  • So many gadgets, where to charge them? Megan has a docking station problem, so we try out several charging stations to see what works, what's the best, and what you need to know to build your own. 
  • Back in 2015 on show #11, we saw amazing images of Pluto from The New Horizons spacecraft. Now the craft just sent back some record-breaking pictures. Megan talks with researcher Simon Porter about the farthest images ever made from Earth and what is in the future for the mission. 
  • Jason Howell has some tips for using the new features in the DuckDuckGo privacy search engine app for Android. 
  • In Call for Help, we find a way to separate your work from personal photos on the iPhone.
