CNET News Daily Podcast: The inner workings of Google's Postini

Elinor Mills talks about how Google's e-mail security service unit handles as many as 3 billion message each day; Usenet.com ruling, a 'whittling down' of Betamax defense; and Bing's first month produces small share gain for Microsoft.


Google's e-mail security service unit, called Postini, monitors 3 billion messages per day. They flow in and out of customer systems and pass through Postini's thousands of machines in data centers around the U.S. and in Europe before hitting the Internet.

That and other headlines of the day, on Wednesday's edition of the CNET News Daily Podcast.
