CNET News Daily Podcast: How does Internet Olympic coverage rank?

A software fix may be on the way for the iPhone, and we check in on Internet coverage of the Olympics at the halfway point.

The 2008 Summer Olympics can be watched online more than any Olympics past, which is no surprise. But how smoothly is all the streaming going, and how many people are tuning in to watch the Games on their computers? CNET News reporter and sports enthusiast Ina Fried breaks it down.

Plus, Business Week is calling Infineon's chip inside the iPhone 3G the root cause of the reception problems that numerous iPhone 3G owners have reported. The good news, according to the publication, is that Apple believes it can fix the problems with a software upgrade; the company is said to be testing an update that could be released as early as the end of this month.
