Have hackers already messed with previous presidential elections?

That's a question we raise in today's podcast, which looks at the possibility that cyberattackers could hijack the election. Hackers, after all, have made their presence felt with the hack of the Democratic National Committee e-mails that resulted in the resignation of its chairwoman.

We also discuss the Galaxy Note 7's iris scanner, and how you would actually use it, as well as discuss who has the fastest wireless network in the US. Spoiler: It's not Sprint.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by CNET
