CNET News Daily Podcast: The skinny on the new Shuffle

Apple overhauls the iPod Shuffle with new features and more storage; as Google makes its online maps better, one politician wants to blur them out; and AMD says MacBook problems shouldn't taint the entire graphics chip industry.


Apple overhauls the iPod Shuffle with new features and more storage in an even smaller case. Reporter Tom Krazit stops by the podcast studio to talk about where the Shuffle fits into Apple's lineup. Also in this podcast: Google is opening up its Map Maker tool so people can make maps and directions more accurate. At the same time, a California politician wants to blur parts of Google Maps out in the name of national security. And AMD says the problems some users are having with their new MacBooks shouldn't taint the entire graphics chip industry.
