CNET News Daily Podcast: How Symbian can stop the bleeding

Mats Lewan explains why the most widely used mobile OS is losing market share so rapidly, and what Symbian plans to do about it; ComScore changes its traffic-counting methodology; and get ready for the Bing commercials.

CNET News' Mats Lewan joins today's podcast to talk about what Symbian plans to take back some of that share.
