CNET News Daily Podcast: AOL gets a spin-off target date

In today's episode we talk about AOL's split from Time Warner, which is taking place next month, as well as GE's plan to bring its clean coal technology to China.

Eight years after merging with Time Warner, AOL has finally been given a date for when it's being spun off to once again be its own company. We also talk about clean coal in China, the next versions of Adobe's Flash and AIR platforms, as well as the news that Microsoft's next version of Internet Explorer isn't quite ready for a public peek just yet.

Two small housekeeping notes: Thanks to everyone who wrote in last week to provide feedback on the CNET News Podcast. It's much appreciated. Also, there was a problem with Monday's episode making it to places like iTunes and other podcasting grabbers. In case it hasn't shown up yet, try refreshing the feed in whatever podcasting software you're using.
