ScreensavRz Jolly Roger EditionRadTech has introduced a limited-edition “Mac Pirate” pirate flag-design ScreenSaverz laptop screen protector. The design is inspired by the flag the original Mac team flew over their offices. If you’re on-site at WWDC, you can pick one up. Availability beyond WWDC is yet-to-be-determined. (John, I say keep making `em!) RadTech ScreensavRz are designed to protect notebook LCD displays from damaging contact with keyboard and chassis, as well as offering the ability to clean, polish and remove prior damage resulting from abrasive contact.
