Zoom tips, Mini Electric and Resideo interviewed - Pocket-lint Podcast 48

Season 2, Ep. 48

This week, Pocket-lint's editor Chris joins host Stuart to talk about the phenomenon that is Zoom, and how it is helping us all keep in touch while we stay at home during lockdown.


Also, as part of Pocket-lint's sustainability month, Stuart chats with Honeywell's Andrew Hurst and Krzysztof Meinicke about how smart heating can save you bundles, while helping the planet by lowering your energy consumption. 


And finally, Chris returns to give you his verdict on Mini Electric car. 


We also wanted to tell you about our plant a tree initiative we've launched.  


Pocket-lint has teamed up with Resideo - the new home of Honeywell Home - to plant trees in your name for free. We've already planted 1,000 trees, but we want to plant 3,000 more with your help and on your behalf.


If we can reach our target of 3,000 trees, it will mean we're offsetting around 900 carbon tonnes. That's the equivalent of over 1,000 return flights from Los Angeles to London, or the average CO2 a family of four uses over 150 years!


To help us help the environment, all you have to do is tell us the Mac address of a Honeywell smart thermostat that is active in your home or office. The thermostat can be already installed and being used or completely new - but it must be active and you must tell us before the end of April (30 April 2020).


You can find out more details here.
