A year ago Sunday, Apple's iPhone officially made its way into the hands of consumers. CNET News.com reporter Tom Krazit was on the front lines covering the phone's frenzied release and he's been following the device ever since. He joins the podcast to talk about some of the highs and lows of the iPhone's first year.

Also, AT&T may be getting ready to add a multimedia messaging service for the iPhone. And what's a day in the tech world without news of a lawsuit? This time, NameSafe, an identity theft protection company, has sued competitor LifeLock for allegedly placing search ads that prominently use its name. All this and more on today's News.com daily podcast.
