The 3:59 extended edition: How Google's next Pixel can catch up to Galaxy S8

Here's our full podcast and live YouTube post-show on the Google Pixel, the phishing attack on Google docs and Instagram's red bathing suit spam.

So, the Galaxy S8 is leading the pack right now as far as Android phones go.

While the Google Pixel carried that torch for quite awhile after its release, the flames have died out a bit. As the folks at Google gear up to launch the sequel to their flagship phone, we've got some recommendations about what they should add. (Psst: Waterproof it! Make sure your supply can actually meet demand!)

Also, were you one of the millions of people affected by the Google Docs phishing hack? We break down how the scam worked and what you should do to prevent it from causing any more damage. We also enjoy some social media schadenfreude, this time at a swimwear company's expense. Here's what happens when your social media campaign spams Instagram with a red bathing suit.

Enjoy the audio version of our full, extended YouTube show from Thursday, where we chat about all three of these topics.

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.

Check out the extended shows on YouTube.
