[ laughter ] >> but it's also been said that apple's plan is years ahead, 2015 maybe. so that's in place. you just don't have the figurehead. >> keep this in mind. they have a year to a year and a half of their road map baked
6:04 pm
or virtually baked. they are not suddenly scrambling saying what are we going to do about iphone 5. iphone 6 is visionarily done. what happens in 18 months to two years? that's what wall street is overreacting to tonight, i have to say. >> tim cook. what can we expect of him and these are awfully big shoes to fill. >> the biggest in the tech industry. the way things are going on the stock market,s biggest in american street. he runs the company, day to day. he revamped their manufacturing for seven years. this is why apple has the best high quality manufacturing. this is the guy who made this happen and high quality on time and surprisingly good on price. h has that nailed. who is going to say no? jobs says no to overfeatured products and initiatives that don't have a clear purpose or
6:05 pm
work. that's what a lot of companies have the hard time finding guts to do. >> it's a big day in the tech world. >> it is. but they are not totally unexpected. and this has been managed as well as you can with the situation like this although they are relatively nontransparent about what his health has been so that's always frustrated the shareholders. >> it really happened. >> not i can't believe this was coming. we knew that. >> we'll keep an eye on this tomorrow. certainly the stock when the market opens. >> that will be our next milestone. >> cnet editor-at-large brian cooley, thank you. tonight bart appears to be changing its tune on a tactic it used to try to disrupt a protest recently. this as angry community members lashed out at board members today. joe vazquez on what the board said about the decision to shut down the cell service during protest. >> reporter: they have changed their tune. before it was we did the right thing and reserve the tri-state do it again. but now it's we might do it

6:07 pm
if we're -- >> if we're going to shut off cell service ever, it needs to be under the most extraordinary circumstances that i equate to 9/11 levels. >> reporter: the board president says the new policy needs to be proportional. >> so if we're silencing everyone for a very limited thing, that's not appropriate. if it's maybe for 10 minutes or --i think there's varying degrees of when it's appropriate. >> reporter: the board expects to have a new policy in place within the next few weeks. it's not clear whether that's going to be enough to quell these protests. they have another one planned monday. >> i was just going to say there's another one planned before the next few weeks. monday it is , huh. >> reporter: so it's planned. it's "anonymous." it's on the internet. so it's not clear how many people are going to heed the call. >> joe vazquez, thank you. in other bay area headlines now, the san jose police department is ending its partnership with homeland

6:13 pm

6:15 pm
no surprise because he was only -- the only real suspect ever identified and he was the last person to see her alive. the only real question and people are asking themselves in the building behind me that tonight, is why did it have to take so wrong for this to happen? if maurice nasmeh were alive today he would be tried for the murder of jeanine harms the case the district attorney says he could prove to a jury and win. >> maurice nasmeh killed her, rolled her up in a rug, put her in the back of his jeep and disposed of her body according to all the evidence. >> reporter: harms disappeared in july of 2001 after a night of the drinking and marijuana smoking that began at the rock bottom brewery in campbell where harms first met nasmeh. they later went to her duplex after buying beer at this liquor store, the last place harms was ever seen. investigators don't know how harms was murdered but they say
6:16 pm
a new and exhaustive crime scene analysis by an illinois company microtrace confirmed that 27 fibers from harms' persian floor rug and a latch hook rug she was making were found in the rear cargo area of nasmeh's jeep shortly after she disappeared. >> there is no innocent explanation for those 27 fibers being in the back of nasmeh's jeep cherokee. >> reporter: nasmeh was first arrested for harms' murder in 2005. but he was set free two years later after the competence of the original criminalist on the case was called into question before trial. he always maintained his innocence. the case took another tragic twist last january when harms' brother wayne shot and killed nasmeh and then killed himself after the two had a chance encounter at a san jose shopping mall. >> this case is layered with tragedies and i think it centers on the amount of time that the family has had to wait for an answer. >> reporter: investigators say other circumstantial evidence points to nasmeh. he had a history of violence toward women, especially when
6:17 pm
he drank or smoked pot according to former girlfriends. and that six-pack of beer none of the empties were ever found at harms' home. >> while i'm satisfied with the result of the investigation in terms of the work that was put into it, i'm not satisfied with how long it took. we weren't able to bring justice to the harms family and to our community. >> reporter: jeanine harms' body has never been found. and lot case is now closed, the district attorney and police in los gatos are asking anyone with any kind of information as to where her remains may be located, they are asked to now step forward and give that information up. dana, this afternoon i spoke with jess sanchez her father, off camera. he told me that he didn't want to comment. the only thing he would say is that his only hope and his wife's hope now is that somehow her remains will be found while they are still alive. >> hopefully that will be fulfilled for the family.

the category 3 storm with 120- mile-an-hour winds ripped through towns around the capital of santo domingo causing flooding and extensive damage to homes and buildings there. the hurricane irene is expected to reach the east coast by the weekend. >> we're thinking about packing up and leaving tonight or early thursday morning at 3 or 4 a.m. we are still playing it by ear to see what they say with the track of the storm. >> irene is expected to get stronger and could become a category 4 storm with winds of at least 130 miles an hour by tomorrow. let's see what the computer models are doing, lawrence karnow watching that. >> yeah, guys. it looks like like this is going to be a serious storm. still a tough call on exactly which way it is headed. right now the track continues to move further and further away from the coastline making its way onshore possibly up in new england. here in the bay area, we are enjoying a gorgeous summer day. lots of sunshine all the way to the interior valleys but we are
6:20 pm
seeing some fog out toward the coastline. and we are going to see more of that in the next couple of days. that's a sign of a cooldown in the works here in the bay area. so yeah, what a day it's been but that fog is gathering along the coastline pretty thick and just beginning to nose its way through the golden gate bridge here. so we have some fog as we head in toward the evening hours. dense at the coastline, probably going to see some drizzle overnight. still temperatures on the hot side inland. 90 in concord right now. 8 livermore. 91 fairfield. we have 63 degrees cooling down with a couple of patches of fog moving into san francisco. tomorrow, by the afternoon, you will see some hot temperatures still inland. but the numbers coming down especially along the coastline and just inside the bay. comfortable though, becoming mostly sunny into oakland about 72 degrees. 81 in san jose and sunny. patchy fog at the pacific, cooler and 62. 90 degrees into fairfield. so the next couple of days the ebb and flow of the weather as temperatures start to cool off
6:21 pm
just a little bit toward friday. bottoming out, then, i think as we look toward the weekend, high pressure builds in. we may see an offshore wind kicking in and clear skies to the coast and some very nice weather over the weekend. that's a look at weather. back to you. >> thank you. google settles with the feds. the rogue ads that cost it half a billion dollars. i hope they missed their mistake on this. >> they used to give it away for free but not anymore. why some say costco pulled the plug at the worst possible time. google has agreed to pay 500 ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

million dollars, to settle a federal investigation into rogue drug it's one of the biggest
6:24 pm
legal settlements in u.s. history. google has agreed to pay $500 million to settle a federal investigation into rogue drug ads. the feds were looking into the mountain view-based company for allowing canadian pharmacies to advertise prescription drugs to american citizens. the settlement means google will not face civil charges. the fine was based on gross revenue google had collected for the ads and from illegal sales of those drugs to u.s. consumers. costco the place with your doesn't just buy stuff, you buy lots of stuff. and until recently the stores were actually giving something away. no charge. not anymore. robert lyles on what that was and why some say it's a decision that costco will eventually regret. reporter: electric cars, a vision of the future we have
6:25 pm
heard about for years. >> connecting them to the grid. >> reporter: costco was buying in bulk. >> costco was phenomenal. for almost 15 years, they have had charging infrastructure that was really critical. >> reporter: but that was then, this is now. among those who noticed the change electric vehicle owner advocate jay friedland. >> this is where the costco chargers used to be and as you can see, they have basically covered it up. you can see where the electrical feed was. >> reporter: store by store, the mega-retailer is removing every one of those stations even in the famously green bay area. >> people would come to costco, charge, they would go in and buy things. >> reporter: so why pull the plug on the future? costco didn't speak to cbs 5 on camera but a spokesman did say by phone, this is a chain with millions of customers and virtually none of them were using the electric fueling stations. and there's one more problem.
6:26 pm
>> the old chargers that were put in place 10 or 15 years ago no longer work with the new cars. so cars like the nissan leaf, the chevy volt. >> reporter: that new generation of cars will still need a place to juice up. and eb believers say costco missed an opportunity by erasing instead of updating. >> we're seeing businesses all over the united states invest in charging. >> removal of chargers without a plan to basically deal with the coming ev market is probably something they will revisit. >> i hope costco admits their mistake on this and realizes that they had done the right thing and that they are going to do it again. >> reporter: in san francisco, robert lyles cbs 5. cheaper cable, hundreds of new jobs. the new high-tech offer for san francisco. but why some say it comes at too big a price literally. first the east coast, now
6:27 pm
the bay area gets rattled. kind of creepy late-night connection between the earthquakes. >> i cannot believe in this day and age that people would hurt a child trying to better themselves. >> kicked out before the school year even starts. why the college freshman was booted over an email. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

an ambitious plan by a-t and-t to beef up its internet and cable tv service in san new at 6:30, a community group is fighting an ambitious plan by at&t to beef up its internet and cable tv service in san francisco. now, they are not against the technology. instead, how it looks on city streets. phil matier has the story. >> reporter: san francisco neighborhood activists love the city's landmarks. what they don't like, however, is anything that clutters up the streets. and they are especially not happy at at&t's plans to install 726 boxes similar to this one around the city in order to compete with comcast for neighborhood internet and tv service. >> the purpose of the boxes are to bring fiber technology closer to where the customers live. >> reporter: maybe. but a group of neighborhood activists filed suit today asking for a full environmental review of the plan all in the hopes of putting the brakes on
6:31 pm
the city hall's approval of the boxes. >> this is a private enterprise with a benefit to private parties. why should the public be subsidized a dallas-based corporation? and having to look at these ugly boxes in the process? >> reporter: it's an issue that even has city hall divided. >> there are many of us who thought that the city should look into whether there was any alternatives to having these huge large ugly boxes on our narrow street sidewalks. >> i personally think it's a great idea. i think we need a little challenge to comcast. i think monopoly never helps. and when we get the competition, it means better cable rates and tv rates and hundreds of new jobs. >> reporter: that may be. but for opponents the big question is -- >> can i put one of these in your front yard? they are only four feet wide, four feet high and 2.5 feet deep and frequently subject to a lot of graffiti. >> reporter: on the other hand. >> i have a suspicion that four or five months after they are in people won't notice them i
6:32 pm
know more just like the ones there now, probably only noticed one or two of the 50 on your drive from the studio here. >> we have facilities underground. they are 9 feet by 20 feet underground and in an old city like san francisco, it's hard to find the places in the public right of way underground with the old sewer and cable and power and everything. >> reporter: so there you have t technology comes but it comes with a price and this time it is aesthetic and so people are upset about it. they are filing suit. they want a full environmental review. >> the point of the infrastructure being limited underground, that's a valid point. >> reporter: i remember they pulled up one thing up on telegraph hill, hit three gas lines and -- now, look. the other thing here that's interests is that the fact that the approval for this actually got so far in city hall. it wasn't that long ago that something like this would have been stop dead in its tracks,
6:33 pm
environmental review, environmental review. but this year whether it's a change in tone for business or jobs it got the six votes needed to pass the board of supervisors. that's going to be interesting as this plays out in an election year in san francisco. >> indeed. >> i am guessing there will be a lot of finger-pointing. >> reporter: you got it. [ laughter ] >> all right, phil, thank you very much. two minor temblors shook the bay area just a day after the earthquake rattled the east coast centered in the same area a 3.6 magnitude quake shook last night at 11:36. and almost equally strong 3.5 rumbled at 9:57 this morning. >> the earth is hotter in california than it is in the east coast. and when the earth is hot, the seismic energy doesn't travel away from the earthquake fault nearly as far. >> people record feeling the pair of earthquakes as far north as yolo county and as far south as santa cruz. last night's quake hit, get
6:34 pm
this, just as david letterman was giving his daily top 10 about the east coast being all shook up. >> it feels a little bigger than the earthquake but it's just an aftershock. [ laughter ] >> he was poking fun of the reaction on the east coast. bay area viewers were riding out their own minor shaker. well, officials on the east coast spent the day searching for hidden damage after yesterday's surprising quake there. danielle nottingham reports on the trouble found at some of washington's most treasured monuments. reporter: stone masons in hardhats get a firsthand look at the damage tuesday's earthquake did to the washington national cathedral. the 5.8 quake knocked statues loose and sent capstones from the highest parts of the towers crashing down to the roof. it's a sad sight for some members of the mason group. >> from 1994 to '98, we spent four years up here doing restoration work. >> reporter: the cathedral
6:35 pm
remains closed and so does the washington monument. national park service crews found at least one crack in the top part of the 555-foot landmark. it's off limits to visitors until further notice. >> i feel kind of sad because we didn't get to go to it. >> reporter: the washington monument may be closed, but it's business as usual at virtually every other museum and memorial here on the national mall. about 80 miles away at the quake's epicenter, and the small town of mineral, virginia, things are anything but ordinary. store owners are cleaning up the mess left behind. this was the scene inside millers market the moment the ground started shaking. as many as 12 million people felt the biggest earthquake to hit the east coast since 1944. while most communities made it through with just minor damage, inspectors are still checking
6:36 pm

6:40 pm
>> reporter: instead of saying go check my sjsu account. >> reporter: yes. >> reporter: students are required to regularly check messages on their senior account and they get an email notification that there's a waiting message but when started logging on during the middle of the senior year? >> every time i checked them it was like something not important. >> reporter: then after taking his english placement test, he got this email. >> if you already signed up for or taken an ept test, please disregard this reminder. >> reporter: so after he saw e- mails like this he stopped checking because told this him to disregard. >> exactly. >> reporter: but there was a problem with his english placement test and because he thought he could disregard all e-mails referring to that test he missed the one that said he had to respond or face unenrollment. >> whether it comes via us mail or email, you are responsible for checking every message and following up as needed. >> reporter: pat harris says the administration of san jose state requires all students as to stay on top of their messages and they refused to make an exception for this student an estimated 200 students unenrolled this year.
6:41 pm
while rick admits his son should have stayed on top of his email he also believes parents should be notified and a letter should be sent. >> he was in the middle of finals. he was about to graduate. i cannot believe in this day and age that people would hurt a child trying to better themselves by going to college because of a missed email. >> reporter: and this turned out to be a costly lesson. they already paid registration fees, dorm deposit. it's too late to enroll anywhere else and can't enroll here again due budget cuts until he is a junior, allen. base a tough lesson. on the consumerwatch, julie watts, cbs 5. ever feel like you would just like to give back but don't have the time? >> it's something i have always wanted to do. but i was, you know, raising kids and doing the wife thing and taking care of home. >> this week's jefferson award winner felt the same way.
