CNET News Daily Podcast: A truce in security research?

Secret Service investigates Sarah Palin e-mail hack; pricing information comes through for HTC's first Google Android phone; and Yahoo offers up free music with its search results.

Are we finally seeing a truce called between software makers and security researchers? Security reporter Elinor Mills writes that although there is a long history of clashes between the two groups on the way software holes are reported, a few recent examples of cooperation between the two groups might be a sign of a more cooperative relationship.

The U.S. Secret Service is investigating the hack of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's personal e-mail account. TechCrunch is reporting that the HTC Dream, the first phone based on Google's open-source operating system, will set early adopters back $200 (that's with a two-year T-Mobile contract). Nearly a year after Yahoo killed off its music service in order to team up with RealNetworks' Rhapsody, the fruits of that partnership are now coming to light. Yahoo has started offering full-length music tracks to its search results.
