the flu virus hits big. with aches, chills, and fever,
4:19 am
and it needs a big solution: an antiviral. so when the flu hits, call your doctor right away and up the ante with antiviral tamiflu. prescription tamiflu is an antiviral that attacks the flu virus at its source and helps stop it from spreading in the body. tamiflu is fda approved to treat the flu in people two weeks of age and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu, tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion, or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting.

and you haven't found them in days. but now there's a new app called "finding rover"... where it uses facial recognition to help find your lost pet. misha di-bono explains. an animal shelter is the last place you want to see your pet. but if he or she does get lost, thanks to a new app called finding rover - families have a
4:21 am
smartphones to quickly find them. (daniel desousa/san diego county animal services) "finding rover is facial recognition app." here's how it works. once you download the app to your smart phone or tablet, you take a picture of your pet and it's scanned into the system. (daniel desousa/san diego county animal services) "the public can use to register their dog, and if the dog ever runs away, they can post that their dog has been lost." using facial recognition technology, the app searches through thousands of images of old and recently added pictures to try and locate your pet. this is jane. she's been in the shelter for over a week and is helping us with our demonstration. (daniel desousa/san diego county animal services) "it looks at 8 different points on the dog's face. if the dog comes into us, we take the same kind of photograph and if that dog has been reported as lost, it makes that connection." and another feature -- the app will send alerts to be on the lookout for your dog to anyone in your neighborhood who also uses finding rover. and it also works in reverse. (daniel desousa/san diego county animal services) "if you just see a dog running loose down the street, you can take picture of it and it will still post it that way as well." in fact, in the last 10 days these families have all been reunited with
4:22 am
the finding rover app. (misha dibono, reporting) "so here's the best part: the app is absolutely free and it takes just minutes. the guy that developed it did it because he wanted to make sure that all these dogs would be reunited with their families." (daniel desousa/san diego county animal services) "it's amazing to see anybody get reunited with their pet. it's a member of their family. we see people break down in tears just because they have been missing this family member for a day." (reporter standup) "if the finding rover app doesn't reunite a dog with its family, they stay here until they're adopted. the good news here in san diego, we no longer euthanizes. but this app literally takes two minutes to download, and it's just another tool for families to find their lost dogs. from bonita, misha dibono." ((kirsten joyce)) > apple is adding a new feature in its next i-o-s update... where your i- phone or i-pad's screen light changes at night. it's called the "night shift" mode. apple added it based on a study...which found.. exposure to blue light from screens at night can make it difficult for you to fall asleep. night shift mode automatically shifts the colors on the display
4:23 am
once it figures out when the sun has set in your location. when you use your device in the morning, the colors will go back to its regular settings. /// ((brian loftus)) > doctors discovered a new condition... where people think they're cellphone is ringing or vibrating.. when it's really not. they're calling it the "phantom vibration syndrome". a georgia institute of technology professor studied a group of students... and found 90- percent of them thought their cellphone was ringing or vibrating.. when it really wasn't: (( dr. randi smith/assoc. professor of pyschology at msu denver: "there's a fear that we're gonna miss a text somebody is trying to reach us and we're not being responsive . " "i think it's a little scary how dependent most of us have become on our devices." )) ((brian loftus)) doctor smith also says being so attached to our devices.. keeps us from engaging with other people. /// > we'll be right back......../// ((kirsten joyce))
