6:48 am

6:50 am
70s. frank and michelle? >> nice weekend though. it is 6:49 now. we're all looking to save money whenever we can and a closer look at your phone bill well it might help. >> cnet editor sharon profis is here with some tips on how to lower the monthly bill. >> the only thing you were worried about was how many minutes you were using and how much you were talking an the phone. nowadays all we care dabble is data. so data is the biggest cell phone hog and one of the first things we want to think about is how often you're connected to wi-fi. make sure that wi-fi is almost always enabled so that when there's a network available, you're connected. that way, it's -- it's a free ride. you're not getting any -- you're not using any data against the bill. but then there are other things to think about. so one of the most important things especially ever since face time on the iphone came out is video chatting. video chatting can be a huge hog so you want to minimize that. in fact i would recommend only doing video chatting like skype
6:51 am
or face time when you're connected to wi-fi. then also, video -- youtube and also video uploading so uploading the video to facebook or youtube or instagram can also use a lot of data. and in fact, streaming video is even worse. so if you have netflix on, and streaming, it can use up to three gigabytes per hour. that's -- the monthly bill for some people right? that's their monthly data cap. >> expense i movie. >> well there you go. you get what you pay for. so -- so always be connect today wi-fi. -- connected to wi-fi. music streaming is also important. spotify, pandour that, do that on -- pandora, do is that on wi- fi. spotify lets you download the music in advance and you can still stream it when not connected to wi-fi without cutting into your data plan. and then gaming. so don't worry about things like trivia crack and words with friends. those games are totally fine. but when you're talking about live action gaming like racing games and action games, those
6:52 am
tend to take a little more data. so -- in the last thing i recommend is going to your settings and on android and iphone, you have a settings area where you can actually view which apps are using how much data. so you can kind of use that to make better decisions. >> pandora. when you're streaming music, it's kinging up on the phone? >> absolutely. and in fact i have a number of parents -- >> sometimes i just leave it on and go mow the lawn. >> 115-megabytes per hour. over the course of a month you know that could take up a big chunk of the bill. >> all right time to look at the bill. >> all right thanks sharon. it is 6:52. the trial begins today for the man accused of killing a dozen people inside a colorado movie theater. why the jury selection process is unprecedented in american history. >> and chances are you or someone you know is sick. that's because the flu is spreading all across the bay area. i'm kiet do with a live report on how there's also a shortage of a popular cough medicine.

effective. and we are paying the price. here at the hospital they're taking some drastic measures. asking everyone who's entering the building to wear a mask. even if they've had the flu vaccine. this for the protection of themselves and of others. it turns out that the strain that is hitting the west coast right now really not -- the vaccine that everyone has been getting not been completely effective. they have a sign with a guard restricting anyone under 16 years old from entering. they say right now a lot of kids are getting sick and they would likely be the ones that are triggering an outbreak in the hospital. we did see one girl get turned away when she tried to enter the hospital. we've also discovered bay area pharmacies are running out of a popular cough medicine. promethazine with codeine. a walgreens in san francisco told our cate cauguiran she had the wait weeks for the next shipment. after hunting around she finally found some but was rationed to just four ounces even though the prims called for more -- prescription called for more. one expert says the reason is drug manufacturers don't have a
