Samsung is bricking the surviving Note 7s (The 3:59, Ep. 152)

Samsung plans to render the remaining fire-prone Note 7's useless, Grand Tour could be the most pirated TV show ever and how will an online-only Super Mario Run play out?

Samsung is going to turn all surviving Note 7s into very expensive bricks.

If you still have a Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is coming for your device.

The South Korean electronics giant is releasing an update that will deactivate all remaining Note 7s after its recall in September due to batteries that caught fire. Some of our viewers who decided to hold onto their phones might not like that news.

Also on the podcast we chat about Amazon's "Grand Tour" having the potential to be the most-pirated TV show ever and whether online requirements are poison mushrooms for Super Mario Run.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by the CNET News team in New York and producer Bryan VanGelder.
