parking and shopping areas every saturday through december 26th. and today san francisco kicks off the shop and dine in the 49. it's an effort to get more people to support small local businesses. many of us take black friday shopping very seriously. an estimated 100 million people joined the frenzy hoping to take advantage of good deals. malls were packed and it was really hard finding a spot at livermore's premium outlets. sky 7 hd showed some shoppers just had to sit and wait even to reach the parking lot. there was also a rush thursday night when stores opened early on thanksgiving, but with all that chaos, isn't it nice to stay home and shop online instead? that's what you did. online sales topped $1.7 billion on thursday and that is up 25% from last year. do use caution, though, if you shop online using your mobile device. that convenience could leave you vulnerable. we show you the possible draw

myself. >> reporter: this year the national cyber security alliance put together a tip sheet encouraging people to be cyber smart shoppers. be wary of free wi-fi hot spots, that can leave you vulnerable to hackers. and free wi-fi offered in stores can sometimes be used by the stores to track your browsing. abc 7 news. parents may want to think twice about buying the new hello barbie doll, it could allow hackers to spy on your children. the latest model of the popular sdol wi-fi enabled making it possible for barbie to have a two way conversation with with her owner. those conversations are recorded and stored on servers maintained by toy talk, the company responsible. hackers could get access to the audio files and have barbie say what they want. kind of scary.

fewer than 4,000 of the 85,000 decals are now available. the state says the stickers will probably last over a few more weeks unless the state passes a law to increase the total. lawmakers already have increased the total of stickers three times. according to a tally, the dmv issued about 2500 stickers between early june and november. and san francisco police need your help to find out who chained two dozen baseball bats around the city. very bizarre story. we first broke this on thursday night on abc 7 news at 11:00. some of those bats have nails sticking out of them. the most recent discovery was at fisherman's wharf yesterday morning. police say 27 bats in all have been found. since they could be used as a weapon, the person responsible could face felony charges. penn and tiller have been named the grand marshal of tomorrow's christmas parade and because he's a well-known atheist, people are asking if
he's the right choice. rob hayes from our sister station in los angeles has the story. >> reporter: ho-ho-ho. can it be? is christmas under attack? maybe not physically, but metaphorically. you may get the feeling that starbucks hates christmas because the company's holiday cups were just red. >> they better get in the christmas spirit. >> it's just a cup. >> they need to put glitter, some bling. something something on it. >> still get a great coffee shall. >> yeah. all right th . >> reporter: then somehow this for a countup of trouble. the christmas parade has picked for its grand marshals penn and tiller. >> really? >> reporter: sure the duo is known around the world for their
comedic magic act. but the tall part of the team is a well-known atheist. and the author of this book, every day is an atheist holiday. >> oh, no. he got to go. >> reporter: he's tweeted about the irony of the selection. yeah, x mass, you got a problem with that? and in another tweet, he explains christmas is just a secular holiday. penn and tiller were unavailable for an interview and we couldn't get anyone from the parade to talk to us, but parades are all about the street. so we talked to people on that street. >> i don't like an atheist being in a christmas parade. >> just let it go. no big deal. >> celebrate and have fun. >> reporter: rob hayes, abc 7 news. >> look at that. first lady michelle obama welcomed the official christmas tree to the white house yesterday. the tree will be on display in

freezing this morning. so it will be an awfully cold morning. it will take some time to warm up, but you'll he notice the clear conditions right now, freezing cold, sunny days throughout the weekend. next chance of rain comes our way unfortunately not until thursday. so the cold snap overhead it's that upper level low still situated to the east of us and that is bringing down the offshore winds. and we are just stuck in this pattern. so waking up to below freezing in livermore this morning. tomorrow, same deal. monday not much change. it will really take towards the middle of the week, a wind shift and another air mass to get in here to modify those temperatures. one year ago, check this out, sierra nevada looking very brown, meaning no snow. and now check it out, yeah, currently the snow pack doing much, much better. so hopefully mother nature will help out with that in the days ahead. so in terms of rain, san francisco looking like thursday with an 80% chance. and everybody else coming into play as well looking at some

ingredients, the apparel doesn't have the same anti-flammable procedures on them. >> reporter: so how can you avoid the fakes? poor quality is most obvious way to tell if something is counter fit. when you look at this fake bag at the stitching, you can see the imperfections there. and if all else fails, there is always the smell test. if it's supposed to be leather, it should smell like leather. it's best to buy from reputable retailers and websites. >> flea markets and maplaces ar not a good place to by luxury items. >> reporter: officials expect a surge in counter fit team gear and tickets. katie marzullo, abc 7. giants have won championships if every even number since 2010, so ud think there would be long lines for tickets. abc 7 was in san francisco at at&t yesterday for orange and black friday. it was the first day of individual game ticket sales.

have a great weekend, everybody. i know we keep saying it, but it really is cold. >> yeah, it is. yesterday the north bay was spared due to the wind, but this morning they're even colder than many other locations in the bay area. so let's join the party, why not. i add this wind and it feels like about 23 in santa rosa. so still in the midst of our cold snap with the freeze warning until 9:00. frost advisory, as well. the only exception is the city of san francisco where we're in the 40s. so really from san francisco to my house this morning, 15 degree temperature spread. so even yesterday you had to love the microclimates. but this morning everyone else uniformly freezing out there. this afternoon temperatures in a narrow range, as well. exploratorium camera so pretty with numbers ranging from here we go 46 in the city, oakland at
41. yesterday we saw a record in gilroy. tied another record at the oakland museum and it's possible again this morning. 34 in morgan hill. san jose, you're close to freezing and our exploratorium camera a little shaky, we have winds in the upper levels of the atmosphe atmosphere. freezing in novato, 40 napa, 41 fairfield. and concord. and out by livermore, you are below freezing. so if you're headed out this morning for a dog walk, you may want to wait a couple hours. if you're headed in the car, you may have do some scraping for your windshield. so we're looking at still a very cold weekend with temperatures staying well below average compared to yesterday. north bay was much milder, but you add in the windchill effect and it was cold pretty much everywhere. this morning we're just as
