BlackBerry continues to drop the ball.

The embattled phone maker reported results Thursday that saw continued declines in its phone business, confirming the sentiment shared by AT&T earlier this month. It may be only a matter of time before BlackBerry scraps the hardware business as it continues its transformation into a business software and services provider.

Special guest Iyaz "The Wolf" Akhtar and I also chat about Google Fiber and its possible expansion into big cities with the acquisition of Webpass, which is a small internet service provider that has its own speedy fiber network.

Lastly, we offer a quick update on the House Democrats' protest over the lack of action on gun control legislation -- an act that is being broadcast on Facebook Live. It's now gone past 24 hours.

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.
