6:25 am
>> hi. >> you feel like you were here a couple of days ago? i was? [ laughter ] >> "wall street journal" reporting -- seems to have some inside information that steve jobs liked this, went ahead with it any way knew about the problem. >> this is the idea of the antenna being around the outside edge of the phone. no one did that before. the antenna is usually buried. on the iphone your hand touches the antenna and there are two of them. electricity flows across your skin and you're kind of bridging the short-circuiting antennas and that's causing the issue. they are not going to change that. the phones are built. they are out there millions of them and they are coming off the plant every day. i'm curious what they are going to do to remediate this. >> the whole idea is that when people started complaining, apple's response was typical -- >> oh, yeah, there is nothing wrong. you're imagining things. >> then it's your fault. >> then they said the software is bad.
6:26 am
you haven't been getting as good a signal as you thought. you had four bars but real will had two that's not a fix, that's just saying no the phone wasn't as good as you thought it was. so another shoe has to drop. they may be changing the design of the iphone 4 going forward. i do not think they will recall the current phones out there so don't get excited that you have a new one coming. that's not going to happen. there may be a software change that can improve this. they may give one of those rubber cases. >> there is a cover. >> that's a total fix. >> that's thing. what are those covers about $10? you. >> they're $30! a real revenue source for apple but that small money to throw at this problem and get out in front their own little toyota- gate. >> toyota-gate. [ laughter ] >> they don't want to start the trip down. every company takes that trip one day but they don't want to take it until they have. >> what are you hearing about what people are saying aboutapple and their response? >> apple has so much love in the bank this is not going to
6:27 am
kill them and it's not a massive flaw. only apple having a modest design issue like this would get the attention of consumer reports with a big thumbs down, senator schumer calling it an open letter -- this is an apple- oriented thing. this wouldn't happen to blackberry. >> not to mention the editor at large of cnet getting up early to join us twice in one week! [ laughter ] >> thank you. it's 6:27. coming up, they ransacked oakland businesses. now police want some help to find them. >> the pictures just released and the reward for those who can put a name to any of these faces. ,,,,

6:31 am
closer to the coliseum where you can see it's not backed up yet all the way to here. the taillights are northbound traffic. so we'll continue to watch that let you know when they wrap things up. in the meantime chopper 5 is up towards our hi-5 this morning in milpitas. right now they are in fremont. positioned along southbound 880 near mission. traffic is friday light across the bay area. no big accidents either. that is your traffic. for your forecast, here's tracy. >> thanks elizabeth. well, our forecast for this morning, we are talking about cloudy skies, fog is back. there you go. foggy conditions in the bay this morning. that's going to hold down temperatures. yesterday we enjoyed the 70s across much of the bay area, today not as warm. let's take a look at what you'll deal with for your morning commute. just a few clouds and mild conditions that's well inland. sunrise at 6:00. low clouds returning with patchy fog for the bay and overcast conditions as well as

6:33 am
several break-ins. >> reporter: good morning. i'm here along old bayshore road in palo alto. it's not an area would you expect to be crime-ridden but this office building is one of six or seven buildings hit since february. burglars are apparently braking windows and grabbing whatever they can very quickly. the east bay shore corridor here in palo alto around the embarcadero road area east of highway 101 and then south to san antonio road. it looks like the burglar is just smashing a window and then grabbing whatever they can as quickly as they can, laptops, small flat screen televisions, and now police are warning businesses to make sure they don't have anything that might lead to temptation sitting in windows. police are trying to figure out who did it, they believe it is one suspect. they have blood evidence and
6:34 am
are trying to do lab work to figure out who it might be. so again, police are telling businesses to hide their valuables, improve their lighting, surveillance, even hire private security as they continue to investigate this. back to you. >> thank you. two teenaged brothers in the hospital this morning after they were shot at a house party in the east bay. this happened about 12:30 this morning in brentwood. several teens at a party when a group of young men drove up. witnesses say that words were exchange outside the house. when the small group was leaving, one turned and opened fire. an 18-year-old was shot in the back, his 16-year-old brother wounded in the leg. oakland police are offering up to $1,000 for help in finding looters who trashed downtown oakland last week. the department released 15 photos of people they would like to identify. they show those photos, rioters looting a foot locker, beauty store and sears on broadway following the verdict in the killing of oscar grant. police hope that the public
6:35 am
recognizes some of these faces. >> we need the public to come forward to give us their names so we can follow up and arrest them to show and send a message out that this is not a playground for criminals to come in and loot and steal items in the city of oakland. dozens of businesses in downtown oakland last thursday night. 78 people were arrested and felony charges are filed against nine of them. we have a link to all the pictures as well as the opd tip line. it's on our website, there is now a lawsuit in connection with a murder of vallejo city councilman matt garcia. garcia's mother has filed a $16 million wrongful death suit against the two men convicted in the killing. the councilman was just 22 years old when he was shot and killed in 2008. he was mistaken for a drug dealer who owed the other two men money. the suit also names the alleged getaway driver who was never charged. it's part of a plea deal. san jose arson investigators
6:36 am
are now confirming that the fire at trace elementary school was set by someone. the fire department has is not releasing details about how or exactly where the fire was started. but investigators say they reached the conclusion after reviewing evidence, talking to neighbors and ruling out any accidental causes. the july 5 fire destroyed the school's main building. it was contained to 16 classrooms, library and several offices. classes will resume as scheduled next month, with many to be held in portable classrooms. the fisherman whose boat capsized near point reyes wednesday had been friends since high school. more than 40 years. two of the fishermen were pronounced dead the day the boat broke up in the high surf. another body was recovered yesterday. the fourth is still missing. the four were from riverbank in the san joaquin valley. for about 20 years they had been part of a large group that took an annual fishing trip to bodega bay. california is more than two weeks into its new fiscal year and there is still no budget in place. yesterday, assembly speaker john perez said democrats and
6:37 am
republicans are $7 billion apart in negotiations. they are trying to deal with the budget deficit estimated at more than $19 billion. as party leaders keep talking, no one wants to talk in public about possible deals in the works. >> those are the exact kind of things you can't discuss in public. that's what makes them evaporate. so you have to have thorough discussions. you try to get to resolution. once you get to resolution, you can talk about them. but not before. >> meanwhile, a hearing is planned on how to pay state workers. the schwarzenegger administration is calling for them to be paid minimum wage until this budget issue is resolved. the governor's office says california continues to lose about $52 million every day that the state goes without a spending plan. since the fiscal year began july 1, this impasse has cost the state more than $765

6:43 am
of the east bay. you can see that towards the bay bridge. i have another shot four. i'm going to show you clouds. now i'm going to show you sunshine. see, i'll build you up after i put you down a little bit with those clouds. plenty of sunshine expected, that's going to be in antioch today, livermore, pittsburg, fairfield, benicia, those locations looking at temperatures in the 90s to near triple-digit highs. here is a look at the daily planner for this morning. morning commute a few clouds mild inland low clouds returning to the coastline as well as the bay. overcast conditions with areas of fog for the coast. lunchtime, breaks of sunshine for the coast but slightly cooler around the bay today with more clouds expected and inland warm weather but later on today around 4:00 is when we typically hit our afternoon highs. how hot? 100 morgan hill, 90 san jose, 91 campbell, upper 80s in sunnyvale and cupertino. 89 redwood city. 60s at the coast. that's where you are going to
6:44 am
see cooler weather. east bay location, lower 70s in richard phillips and berkeley, mid-70s in oakland and alameda. and triple-digit highs in brentwood to livermore to pleasanton near triple digits in danville, pleasant hill and concord. well up in the north bay lower to the mid-50s in santa rosa, sonoma and napa. lower 80s in san rafael and san anselmo and near 70 degrees in sausalito as well as in san francisco. heading into the weekend, still hot inland. next week we'll cool down to more seasonal highs. that's a look at your weather. back up to you. >> thank you. apple has a little something to say about its iphone problems. we heard from brian cooley about that big news conference they are planning this morning. let's go to jason brooks with kcbs and >> good morning. stock is actually up a little bit for apple. i think investors are leaved that apple is going -- are relieved that apple is going to
6:45 am
address issue. it's a big deal. they haven't fired too many blanks in the past several years. the iphone 4 a huge seller 1.7 million in the first few days but they have to address this issue quickly. it's not believed there will be a recall. that would cost the company somewhere between $1 billion and $1.5 billion. the question is whether or not there will be some sort of free hardware update, bumpers given out or something solved through a software update. there is software that communicates with antennas and possibly this is an issue that's existed on iphones for the past few years but is now exacerbated by this new antenna design. by the way, investors will be very relieved to see something come out of this and for apple to move past. it shares up are by a .5% which is decent because the market is going down. google announced its earnings after the close yesterday. while revenue and profit was up 24%, it didn't meet expectations. the company spent a lot of money. part of that was due to the
6:46 am
fact that it hired 1200 new employees and also invested more money in research. but the company is making most of its money off search which it dominates. investors want google to branch out. it's making progress with its android operating system. 165,000 new customers activated android-based phones but shares are down this morning by 5.5% and they have lost about 17% in value over the past three months. overall the market is down, dow lower by 93 points. nasdaq off 22. s&p down 11. some of the bank earnings, bank of america and citigroup did not impress very much. even though they did set aside less money to cover bad loans, that's good news looking at the future for the banks. >> jason, thank you very much. jason brooks with kcbs and 6:46. they are being called the toughest restrictions on the u.s. financial industry since
