6:39 am
making. a $5billion project that will add to not only stanford hospital but also lucille packard children's hospital and the stanford school of medicine. we are talking about even more hospital beds, 104 patient beds, and that's the stanford hospital, and make that -- scratch that, 144 patient beds at stanford and 104 at lucille packard children's hospital. and apparently these are going to be really nice rooms, private individual rooms at both locations. i talked to marianne zamora the assistant clinic manager in cardiology. she says this will allow even more patients to come to stanford. tons of patients already want to come here because it has world class healthcare. now they won't have to turn as many people away. there is a downside to all this expansion. the expansion means that there will be an increase in patients which also means an increase in traffic. around the campus, expect to see even more traffic as we watch some pass by this morning over on el camino, on page mill

the 70s. heading inland, you get inside the bay those temperatures cooling off into the 60s and breezy in berkeley and oakland by the afternoon. still pleasant weather there. the napa valley looking good at 72 degrees. 73 in santa rosa and 70 in san anselmo. next few days that ridge of high pressure should get going and that should warm temperatures up slightly on thursday and friday. very comfortable as we head in toward the weekend although those temperatures will start to cool down just a few degrees. that's the latest from here. elizabeth, to you. >> to me! and we'll catch it and we'll show you a shot -- live look right now at the dublin interchange. here's a live look at westbound and eastbound 580. in the commute direction sluggish especially through livermore. sounds like it's about a 17- minute drive time from the altamont pass to the dublin interchange to here, 680 and the dublin interchange. so in those westbound lanes of 580. it's been uneventful so much just your usual slow traffic in your usual spots and where are your usual spots? here, the bay bridge toll plaza. metering lights have been on
6:46 am
since 6:20 or so. and so we're left with a typical backup, looks like it extends to about the west grand overcrossing. 10, maybe 15-minute wait to get you on the bridge but again no incidents at the bridge, no wind advisories like yesterday. so your marin county ride still looks really light. southbound 101 is fine from novato towards the golden gate bridge. that was a live look through mill valley in the southbound lanes so from the north bay we'll get a check of the south bay and mostly green on our sensors a little bit of slowing coming up 101 into san jose but you can see 280 traffic looks great still coming out of downtown nice smooth ride all the way towards cupertino. want to take you back to highway 4. because it's always slow on highway 4. it's going to be slower today. we had an earlier hit-and-run accident on westbound 4 approaching lone tree way. so that is now cleared. it sounds like there may be some activity on the shoulder though and that's what causing these really slow speeds through the antioch area. mass transit remains on time. that's your traffic and

weather. back to you. >> thank you. free financing sure seemed like a good idea years ago but a lot of americans now are paying more for their homes than they're word. >> here now is jason brooks with kcbs and jason, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we have heard about people being under water on their mortgages for quite some time. one of the big overhangs on this economy. core logic says that people that took out second mortgages on their homes particularly during the housing bubble are about double the rate of those who didn't when it comes to being under water. 38% of those who took out second loans are under water compared to 18% who didn't. this is a huge problem. people have less money to spend. that's another reason why consumer spending fell back because people took out that money during the housing boom to spend on other things. vacations, boats, new cars, flat panel tvs, things like that. now that credit has been tightened up, it's hard to get

a second loan. people aren't spending that money on the economy. speak of the economy, that will be a topic today when ben bernanke addresses an atlanta banking conference. last time he spoke was in april. and at the time, the economy was still showing some decent growth. since that time a number of reports have shown that growth slowed down considerably. all eyes will be on bernanke and whether or not he gives any hints as to potential changes in fed policy whether or not there are going to be changes to interest rates or perhaps another round of quantitative easing, although a lot of people don't think that will be the case and the economy needs to start weaning itself off of that life support from the central bank. stock market is trying to stop a nasty losing streak over the past four sessions. so far, so good. dow right now is up by 42 points. nasdaq is gaining 5. and frank and sydnie, the s&p up by 4 points. >> all right. we need to claw back some of those losses.

jason, thanks very much. jason brooks with kcbs and a lot of -- >> a lot of -- >> yeah. >> i'm excited. a lot of excitement about apple's big announcement and steve jobs' appearance at a keynote speech but now we have to ask, i mean, why should we care about all this new technology and if you are a mac user, what's your next move? cnet's brian cooley joins us now with that information. you have all the answers huh? were you there yesterday. >> don't put me on that pedestal because this was the most complicated apple announcement ever. >> how do you decipher it? i was looking at an apple blog. put that in there and what is that? you had already left so i was saying -- >> there were something like 450 updates into the various software platforms they announced yesterday. let me boil it down simply. some of the most exciting things are this, you can synch your portable device without that annoying white cable anymore. that's going to be great. so that's going to make it go wirelessly. >> that's the icloud --
6:50 am
>> that's not the icloud. >> oh, my gosh. okay. >> icloud is when these devices your ipad, iphone what have you will now synch up to a cloud a server that apple runs and replicate it. whatever is on your device will be on everything. in your apple devices. this may not do much for you if you are like me you have an android phone, apple ipad and use windows computers. most of us are like this. so this is like the apple ecosystem so bear that in mind. >> there is a new operating system for the computers. >> i just bought a new computer a couple months ago with the leopard and now there's what, lion? >> now we are going to lion. snow leopard was the last one. leopard was before that. if you have leopard and millions do, you have to get snow leopard first to then get lion so you have to do a double upgrade. $30 plus $30 is $60. >> do i need the upgrade?
6:51 am
>> it has nice screens. it turns your screen into something like an ipad and an auto save, never lose anything. a lot of nice features too many to go into. it's a worthy upgrade but not life changing. >> it's times when it's just good have a pc. >> the old stuff that still works. so we get july is going to be our date for the new operating system for the desktop. that upgrade is a download as an app and then the mobile stuff is coming in the fall. >> iphone 4? >> maybe in september. that what we expect. >> they didn't talk about that? >> no hardware yesterday. >> we have to go to the website and read the fine print then. 450 -- cnet, right. >> a lot to look at. >> cnet editor at large brian cooley, thank you. we appreciate it. it is 6:51. let's take a check on your top stories, that's coming up. >> plus, this little piggy caused some trouble. how a tv reporter stepped in when things got a little wild.
