Apple's rumored smaller iPhone 5SE: Does size matter? (The 3:59, Ep. 9)

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.

Time to spin up the Apple hype. Another event is right around the corner.

We're a week away from the rumored debut of Apple's latest phone, which could be a smaller version of its flagship handset called the iPhone 5SE. It's expected to have a 4-inch display, like the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S, designed for those who can't come to grips with the more recent supersized versions.

Also, we may have already seen the iPhone 5SE in the wild.

In today's podcast, we also talk about Screening Room, the venture by former Facebook and Napster exec Sean Parker that promises to stream movies in your home the same day they premiere in theaters -- all for $50 a flick. And we weigh in on Google's artificial intelligence program besting a top player in the ancient Chinese board game Go.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by CNET Executive Editor Roger Cheng and CNET Senior Writer Ben Fox Rubin.
