On 'The New Screen Savers' recorded on Saturday, October 20, 2018, with Leo Laporte and Iain Thomson:

  • Leo and Iain discuss Apple's upcoming October event and what could be announced, Apple CEO Tim Cook calling for the retraction of Bloomberg's Chinese spy chip story, and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's passing. 
  • Leo gives his hands-on review of Google's new flagship Android phone, the Pixel 3 XL, putting the camera to the test on the streets of San Francisco.
  • Purism, the maker of privacy, security, and freedom-focused devices, just launched the Librem Key, a USB security token that also can detect if someone tampered with your computer. Purism's Chief Security Officer Kyle Rankin joins to show how it all works.
  • NETGEAR Orbi, Wirecutter's pick for best Wi-Fi mesh-networking kit, is adding a new product in its lineup. The Orbi Voice combines a mesh Wi-Fi extender with Harman Kardon speakers and Amazon Alexa smarts. Megan Morrone gives her review.
