CNET News Daily Podcast: Supercomputers and the future of Hulu

We talk supercomputers and Hulu, in just that order. Who's got the fastest supercomputer? And will you soon have to pay to use Hulu.com to watch TV shows and movies?

Supercomputers are in the news again. First Microsoft has a new version of its Excel program that can tear spreadsheets that used to take weeks to calculate, down into a few hours. Then we've got results released early Monday that unveil which company gets to claim its supercomputer as the fastest among the top 500 in the world.

We also get CNET News senior writer Greg Sandoval on the phone to talk about what's going on with Hulu, and why it may soon cost you money to watch your favorite TV shows and movies on the popular site.
