We close off our last podcast of 2016 with more bad news for Yahoo.

The company revealed more than 1 billion users were affected by hack from 2013, that's on top of a hack disclosed in September that exposed 500 million users. The breach caps off a year of blunders for Yahoo as its $4.8 billion sale to Verizon hangs in the balance.

We also chat about Donald Trump's tech summit and Uber's battle with the California DMV. The ride-hailing company rolled out its self-driving car on San Francisco's streets without proper permits.

See ya in 2017!

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.
