Can Samsung's 'Siri' wipe away Note 7? (The 3:59, Ep. 136)

Also, Donald Trump loses his Twitter privileges, and tech companies prod you to vote.

Maybe you can ask Samsung's next phone why the Galaxy Note 7's batteries were exploding.

The Korean tech giant plans to launch its own artificial intelligence assistant with its Galaxy S8 phone, after purchasing Viv, the company co-created by one of Siri's founders. We talk about how Samsung's unnamed voice assistant will stack up against Google Assistant, Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri.

Also on today's podcast, we chat about tech's massive push to get out the vote, and Donald Trump's Twitter privileges being revoked.

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.
