Plenty of examples featured in a New York Times article suggest that Google has been trying to suppress competition, prompting some critics to say the government should step in. Edible Arrangements also goes after Google because its competitors show up in search results. Google AI can now predict heart attacks through an eye scan.

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.

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.
