9:10 am
to get to. let's talk about tiktok. we know the ceo -- has had a lot of issues with the chinese government. why is this still a continuing problem that our government is getting involved in? >> there is a lot of pressure that is building up around tiktok. and you nailed the reason why. its ties to the chinese government. one of the things that is really fascinating about tiktok , other than the fact it has become a cultural sensation in the most visited website on the planet , it is not a u.s. company. there is concern because chinese companies tend to have a more connected relationship with the chinese government that the information that is cold front tiktoks app , if you have it on your phone is collecting your location and all sorts of information. could be accessed somehow by the chinese government. we have seen experiences before consumer apps , there was a running app
9:11 am
a few years ago that people would post the map of where they were running and it turned out some military people were running in the middle of the desert somewhere in squares and it was a secret nuclear facility and they were posting maps . that is where the danger comes . the concern that somehow the chinese government could nonstop about the united states that we don't want them to. >> it opens up a lot of doors. we have seen our government taking action telling government officials you cannot use tiktok on government phones. when we talk about tesla , the department of justice has requested documents . what are they requesting? >> this is around the words , full self driving. this is part of the criticism that elon musk has been under from a ton of people. that this technology, while very promising and very exciting in many ways, is not something that you can actually call ,
9:12 am
full self driving. the company has often said, it is in beta, which is a common thing in silicon valley to say something like that. it is and testing and it will be amazing at one point. the concern the doj has is that there are people that have died as a result of using this and relying on it too heavily. at the end of the day , the question is , is there any accountability for having a name for something that does not live up to that promise yet? >> i don't know how comfortable i am with self driving yet. this might be more of a personal question. my ipad i have had maybe for the last 10 years. it is time for an upgrade. and analyst for apple , i believe an insider has insider information about the rumored new ipad coming out soon. tell us what you know. >> this has been a perpetual rumor that apple is want to come up with a folding ipad.
9:13 am
part of this is driven by the somewhat popularity of samsung's folding phones. we have heard about them and they have gotten good reviews. they are pretty niche product and pretty expensive. apparently, apple is at the point where it is preparing to possibly release a folding ipad next year. if they do it would be the first folding ipad they have announced that it probably will not be cheap . the ipad mini and the ipad standard will be the cheapest ipads you can choose. but it will offer you the opportunity to have a larger ipad in a smaller form , when you're not using it. >> i have so many questions i am interested to see how it is. i always appreciate your inside. >> thank you for having me. >> we have partly cloudy skies filling the bay this afternoon. it is beautiful and mild today and we have rain around the corner. the high clouds allow for it to be a little bit warmer, like a blanket. as we

9:15 am
into saturday. future cast is showing a half an inch . a little more impressive numbers near kentfield. this weekend you can add what we can expect on saturday and sunday to add to the totals. nothing crazy. the models are starting to trend drier. if you're heading out to the giants fanfest, 56 on saturday. keep in mind, showers are likely if you want to head out to the chinese new year's parade. i plan on being out there but i will keep the umbrella handy and the rain jacket handy. it will be a beautiful event. next week we will trend drier into monday. notice out temperatures, even though a cold front is sleeping in, are sticking in the upper 50s and lower 60s. g
