Amazon Go's new shopping experience looks a bit like shoplifting.

The online retailing juggernaut showed off its beta store in Seattle, which will open to the public in early 2017. The video showed customers happily walking into the supermarket picking up their items from shelves and just walking out.

We also discuss why some memes are awful and just need to die off and share our thoughts on the Oculus Touch's VR controllers.

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.

Check out the extended shows on YouTube.
