Happy International Women's Day. Bill Gates took to Reddit for an AMA today. We cover the highlights.

Later this month, the Federal Communications Commission will vote on changing Lifeline's subsidy to offer low-income Americans $9.25 a month to purchase either home internet service or cellular data. But who's paying? We talk to Iain Thomson from The Register about the FBI, the NSA, and Facebook. And what skills are the best at keeping robots from stealing your job?
