CNET News Daily Podcast: Google Chrome gets close to the metal

On Monday's podcast, Google's browser gets closer to the metal, Windows 7 laptops will be cheap, and one man's threat to shoot his iPhone.

Google is building its browser, Chrome, the ability to tap directly into a computer's native processing power through software called Native Client. If successful, Native Client will help close one gap that separates Web applications from those that run natively on a computer's operating system. That would improve the competitive position of Web applications such as Google Docs compared to Microsoft Office--and thereby boost Google's Chrome OS project in comparison with Windows.

Also on the podcast: Don't shoot your iPhone, Windows 7 means cheap laptops, and the FTC tells bloggers to disclose their conflicts.
