This week, Cherlynn and Devindra chat with Engadget's Sam Rutherford about this move towards greater repairability and what it means for future iPhones. Also, they dive into NVIDIA's powerful (and expensive!) new RTX 4080 and 4090 GPUs. Sure, they're faster than before, but does anyone really need all that power?

This week on the show, Cherlynn and Devindra dive into Apple's new MacBook Air M2 and its recent batch of OS betas. It turns out a redesign and a whole new chip makes the MacBook Air even more compelling than before (at least more than the 13-inch MacBook Pro). Also, we chat with Lisa Grossman, Astronomy Writer at Science News, about the astounding new photos and data from the James Webb Space Telescope. It's a clear upgrade from Hubble, and NASA is just getting started!
