Ahead of a planned sale of its core business to Verizon, Yahoo this week made a few adjustments to what will be left of its company after the deal.

First off, the Yahoo name will be changed to Altaba, in reference to a huge stake in Alibaba the remaining company will still hold. Also, CEO Marissa Mayer will step down from the board. Though these moves aren't really a surprise, we discuss how the changes may signal that the deal is moving forward, after Yahoo's disclosure of two massive hacks endangered the acquisition.

Also on the podcast, we discuss what constitutes a robot and talk about warnings of a new scam involving Amazon gift cards.

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.
