Things are heating up for Google, Facebook and Twitter. 

The three tech companies face a trio of congressional hearings this week, starting Tuesday afternoon. CNET's Iyaz Akhtar, an attorney in his previous life, is a special guest on the show and breaks down what we may see. 

We also pick Iyaz's brain about the latest development in the Apple-Qualcomm legal spat. Apple is reportedly looking into getting away from using Qualcomm radios in its products. We discuss the feasibility of the move. 

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.
