CNET News Daily Podcast: Catching our breath, post-tech selloff

Making sense of the tech meltdown; Republicans on edge after laptop theft; and Delta says no to air porn.

The laptop contained "information you'd expect the coordinator for a GOP national campaign to have," such as information on areas to target for support, said Tina Hervey, communications director for the Missouri Republican party.
