CNET News Daily Podcast: Google in China plot thickens

Internet censorship, a runaway Toyota Prius, and .xxx domains are in the news today. We also talk FCC broadband speed test tools, and what the best job in America is right now (hint: it's tech related!)

In light of not posting a podcast last Friday, we're back this week with an extra large version. The lead story so far this week is a report of the Chinese government allegedly warning certain Google partner sites that they should look for another search provider. This coincides with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez calling for tighter Internet regulations over the weekend.

Also, the FCC has a new tool for you to test how fast your Internet is; and the electrical problem that led to the runaway Toyota Prius the other day has been unable to be replicated. Whew. Tune in to find out more.
