We talk about the prospect of a Google-made phone, Volkswagen's hefty punishment and more Amazon Dash buttons.

Google may make its own phone. Or not.

Either way, we talk about why (and why not) a Google Phone would make sense. This comes after a report that Google may move beyond its Nexus program and actually take a more hands-on approach with mobile hardware. The truth may be more complicated than that, though.

We also discuss Volkswagen's settlement to buy back or repair its diesel cars and whether the $14.7 billion punishment is enough. Lastly, we debate whether we need more Amazon Dash buttons in our lives, especially ones for Nerf guns.

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, Senior Writer Ben Fox Rubin and Producer Bryan VanGelder.
