CNET News Daily Podcast: Microsoft speaking with one voice about Windows 7 Server?

Figuring out Windows 7 server; the Android age inches closer; and MIT, hackers gird for court face-off.

Microsoft now says the server version of Windows 7 will not be a major release and will bear the name Windows Server 2008 R2. The move is surprising, given that in the past, Microsoft has used R2 monikers to signify a product with a few new features, as opposed to major changes to a product. CNET News' Ina Fried explains.

The first handset with Google's Android software, the HTC Dream, is now expected to arrive in November after passing FCC certification.

Also, a hearing in Boston is likely to resolve the question of whether or not students who found fare card vulnerabilities must turn over unpublished material to the Massachusetts transit agency.
