On The New Screen Savers for April 28, 2018, with Jason Howell and Rich DeMuro: 

  • Everyone is doing it except Apple. Those pesky Mac laptops have no touchscreens. We'll meet Kevin Kwok who can turn your MacBook Pro into a touchscreen for around $1!
  • There are a lot of tricks out there to learn guitar. What if you could learn chords using light? Jason shows you the Fret Zealot which uses LED lights mounted on the fretboard. 
  • And speaking of light, Megan Morrone shows us the modular smart-light system from Nanoleaf. 
  • We'll answer a Call for Help about choosing the right Android phone, plus there are more of your questions in the Mail Bag.

The New Screen Savers records live every Saturday at 3PM Pacific on Episodes are available for download and streaming later that evening at
