I talk a lot with CNBC about some FBI vs Apple drama that won't be happening now. Hearing got called off.

Ben Fox Rubin and I talk about the latest iPhone 5SE rumor, how much you would pay to watch movies the same day they premiere in theaters and gab about Google's super-smart AI.
We weigh in on whether "5SE" is too much of a mouthful, what's up with Napster and Facebook exec Sean Parker's newest venture and why artificial intelligence may be getting too smart for us.

We finish our first week of The 3:59 podcast by talking about Amazon, flying drones over a REALLY long distance and the new Ghostbusters trailer.

One of the cooler things I did in Barcelona -- even if I learned I am a terrible drone pilot.
Ericsson offers a glimpse of the future with a cellular-connected drone in Stockholm, which I piloted while in Barcelona.

So +Ben Fox Rubin and I started a new podcast to give you a quick rundown of the top tech news with a bit of attitude, analysis and awkwardness. Check out our first podcast!
For the inaugural 3:59 podcast, we talk about 5G hype, why smart baby toys freak us out and the promise of Microsoft's HoloLens augmented reality headset.

Apple gets a few more supporters as more parties come in defense of the company against the FBI.
Three key trade groups, as well as carrier partner AT&T, weigh in on Apple's fight against the FBI. More are expected to come.

It's Day 3 of The 3:59 and we haven't been yanked off the air yet. We tackle four hot topics on today's show, including Apple and Kanye West.
What Apple and the FBI told Congress; how your car might pay at the pump for you; and trending social topics Chris Christie and Kanye West. CNET gives you the latest tech news, fast.

Mobile World Congress is a trade show that's supposed to be about phones. But it's virtual reality that stole the show.
Virtual reality was all the rage as the technology nudges closer to the mainstream.
