bay area. it could be picking up at 1:00. the main target time frame will be this afternoon and the evening hours. this will cause issues on the roads tonight. once again we are talking about rain for your friday morning and for the weekend as well. it's tough to dodge the rain drops. the commute can be extra challenging. but remember this is good news. we need the rainfall. so far october has been very productive for us. >> thank you very much. the commute could be bad this evening as you heard mark say. the rain will be moving in. some areas that get flooded because they are below sea level is this area i circled here between say mill valley and central san rafael exit. it does tend to flood there. really whenever we have rain it's correlated with accidents. if you don't have to be on the road this afternoon, i wouldn't recommend it. another thing to put on the radar which is monday, halloween, people want to be home early and there will be a
lot of traffic that evening or afternoon trying to get home. >> starting as early as 2:00 or 3:00. >> it's that one day of the year when people really want to be home. chp hoping to wrap up a homicide investigation and reopen an on ramp to interstate 80 in richmond. authorities were called about 12:30 about a body at the hill top drive on ramp. officers found a man who died from gun shot wounds. investigators have not released his name or age. they say he was latino who may have come from a park and ride parking lot nearby. >> trying to get any investigative leads from the gas stations on either side of the freeway. we will do as much as we can to obtain the info. >> investigators will be looking at video from any surveillance cameras in the area to try to figure out what happened and find the person responsible. police need your help finding a person who hit a
bicyclist and took off. the incident happened at about 10:30 monday morning on fremont avenue east of sunny veil saratoga road near a high school. according to mercury news the bicyclist was severely injured. this is the car involved. it is described as a white 2009 to 2014 rack are a. the driver was described as having a pony tail. two contra costa county firefighters on paid administrative leave after accused of drunk disorderly conduct. the walnut creek marriott called police early sunday saying four drunk guests refused to leave. they were identified as andrew desmond and his girlfriend. also identified were 32 year old firefighter johnson and his wife. the photo is from the facebook page of east countedy today while the wife's picture comes
from instagram. the four were at the hotel for a charity ball hosted by a firefighters union for the bikes for tikes program. there was a scuffle between desmond and two officers. >> we basically want to see exactly what happened and let the facts come out in the case. we'll make evaluations based on that. we take the public's trust very seriously. we want to be sure that we get that part of it right. >> the firefighters union released this statement. local 1230 apologizes for this unfortunate incident at the site of our charity event. two police officers suffered minor injuries in the incident. the firefighters and their companions were released on bail. a record number of people have already voted in the november 8 presidential election. 37 states have early voting.
so far more than 12.5 million votes have been cast, much higher than the rate in the 2012 election. in san francisco thousands of people have turned in ballots. election officials started processing them yesterday. those will be numbers announced as soon as polls close on election night. early voting is a growing trend. >> the numbers of ballots going out is the highest we have ever issued. we've got the most voters ever in san francisco registered to vote. we've got the most voters who have come at this point in the cycle to city hall to cast ballots. >> san francisco has one of the highest vote by mail percentages in the state. 60% of san francisco voters cast ballots without going to the polls on election day. >> san francisco's elections director says he is experiencing a pretty big problem with the ballots when san francisco's five page ballot is folded together and placed in the envelope, it's too thick to fit into the processing machine. he is asking san francisco voters to fold each page
separately and then stack them together before putting the entire ballot into the envelope. that way individual ballots won't have to be processed by hand and that will speed up the election results. there are reports of a different kind of ballot problem in nevada and a few other states. most people say things are going off without a hitch but one woman said while she was working on her ballot she heard the man in the booth next to her complaining about a problem. she said she decided to hold off on voting for now. >> he said that when he hit the submit button or whatever, everything shifted. it wasn't the same people that he voted for. >> it completely matched to everything that i marked on the ballot. there was absolutely no problems with that. >> several other people said they had heard about problems but didn't have issues when they went to vote. voting officials across the country are telling voters to check the ballots carefully
before they submit. we are getting word that the man wanted for vandalizing donald trump's star was arrested. we showed you this video obtained from deadline hollywood. police arrested james otis on felony vandalism as he was leaving his west hollywood home this morning. otis talked to reporters and admitted to the vandalism. he said his goal was to remove the star to auction it and raise money for women who accused trump of sexual harassment. >> i am admitting to what i have done. that's more than mr. trump has ever done with many of the women. >> this is not the way we should act in a democracy. democracy requires respect for the law and most people i think are disgusted that someone would do this. >> the damage is estimated at $2500. repairs are already underway. a southern california company started the first ever ride share service for women only. it is called see jane go. it was created in an effort to
make women feel safer. the drivers are women picking up women only. the creator of the app says he came up with the idea after hearing about scary experiences from his 19 year old daughter. >> i had a girlfriend get locked in a car with a male driver and he said you can't get out unless you give me a kiss. thank goodness she got out and nothing else happened. it is something that we as women have to deal with every day. >> the creator william jordan says it is not meant to be discriminatory to men. men can ride with a female user but if a man tries to book a ride by himself the company will refer to him another ride share service. see jane go is only in orange county but the company does hope to expand. coming up next, a unique store getting ready to open in san francisco. it is for one day only. up next, how it aims to help the homeless in a dignified way. >> from long vacations to paid sick days, companies with the best job perks and some of your
my mom marnie and then she died life. of lung cancer. so i have a personal interest in helping prevent smoking. i'm tom steyer, the co-chair of the yes on 56 campaign. every year, nearly 17,000 california kids start smoking. a third of them will die from their addiction. tobacco taxes reduce youth smoking. please. vote yes on prop 56. if we can save even a few lives, it's worth it.

microsoft is getting into the desktop computer business showing office new surface studio pc. it's an all in one touch screen desktop. it features a high speed processor and screen that's higher definition than 4k. it will be available this holiday season but the tech giant did not reveal a launch date. you might want to start saving up. it starts at $300. apple is expected to announce the next big thing. rumors are it will be a redesign of the popular -- mac book. they're expected to be lighter and thinner of previous ones. we expect the announcement in the next 45 minutes. of course we have a crew there. ktvu will have the announcement online when it happens and a full wrap up at noon. >> joining us in studio is ryan
he would ridge cofounder of nerds on call. twitter posted another quarter of slowing revenue growth and said it would slash 9% of its global workforce. is the company in trouble? >> i don't know if it's in trouble. it still has 350 philly the active -- million active daily users. the thing about twitter is this is their month of doom. it's not terribly unusual. it is in their sales and marketing department which means that's where they're struggling. they're trying to find a way to make the company profitable. it hasn't been profitable. >> they've got good stuff coming with the streaming of thursday night football. they've got that going. twitter calls itself a news organization, not necessarily just a social network. >> it's not likely to go away because someone would want all
the followers. >> yes. it is a power house of influence. think of the election alone. disney looked at it, salesforce.com was looking at it. they're trying to get themselves sold. but they've got a troll problem as we all know about. they put in a block button so you can block users. that's keeping a lot of people -- disney will not go for it because of the troll problem. they have to fix that first. >> let's talk about the apple announcement. if it is revamp of the mac book. i have an iphone, an ipad. do i need a mac book? >> you have a good point. desktop computer sales have been declining. it is expected to continue to decline in the next two years. it's weird that microsoft suddenly jumped into the market this time. you have to do something different, a little unusual. i am an apple owner. everything i am surrounded with
is apple. i have an old mac book that i am dying to update. i don't know if this will be big enough to take us away from what we are already using. >> what is behind microsoft trying to get into this desktop business? you say the business is dying. >> here is the thing about microsoft. they aren't selling to the user of today. what they're doing is taking a big bet on 3d and virtual reality. everything they announced yesterday has something to do with 3d, virtual reality. what they're doing is trying to get creators involved. >> so you are like architects, engineers. the price point on that and what they were talking about yesterday, close to $3000. >> $2900 for the cool computer. once they've got all the creators creating content for them on their networks and in their platforms then the
consumers will follow. apple has dominated the creator market for so long with their integrations with adobe and everything else. this is a really interesting spin the way microsoft is doing it. and the pc is gorgeous. >> what did you think of the surface dial? >> i love it. the head of hardware is saying that is just the beginning. you will see more hardware accessories that will work with the service. you can also use that same accessory on the surface pro as well. i mistakenly said 300. it's $3000. mac book pros are $2000. are people willing to pay this? >> oh, yeah. apple will also offer two terabyte drive for the first time. it's going to be a higher end thing. the display will be the retina display but it will get a pixel upgrade because their imac two years ago got the 5k. what would be interesting was if they took a thing from
microsoft and created touch screen imac it desperately needed, having the creation with the apple pencil. that would be awesome. >> what about the timing? >> it is cool. >> here we are today with microsoft. >> they have diminished the announce by having this today and they have diminished the business reviews on declining revenue. it's brilliant. >> the product still has to be perfect in order for it to be successful. you can have as much timing as you want. >> i agree. iphone sales is the charge for apple. now there are rumors of the iphone 8 coming out. it looks gorgeous. it's going to be amazing and will really beef up their sales. the mac book line needs a refresh. it will not be the thing that fuels their growth but it will keep investors on edge.
>> appreciate it. coming up next on mornings on 2 the nine, culinary first for the area's biggest city. a tour of the restaurant that earned san jose its only michelin rating. >> rain is moving into the bay area. it is second to pick up later today and throughout the -- expected to pick up later today and throughout the weekend as well. we'll tell you how people are getting ready for the wet weather, coming up.
