CNET News Daily Podcast: Apple's Lala buy confirmed, plus we talk shirt

We talk Apple's pickup of music site Lala, and we discuss a site that lets you buy custom-fitted dress shirts while actually making the process kind of fun.

Over the weekend Apple confirmed it had in fact picked up music service Lala, an acquisition that could drastically change the company's iTunes business and product offerings. It remains to be seen what parts of Lala's technology and services Apple chooses to integrate into its own.

We also get CNET writer and copy editor Jeff Sparkman in the studio to talk about his recent foray into the world of creating customized dress shirts online, a process he says has been made easier by playing video games. Find out more about the service he checked out, and how involved it was.
