skin is exposed while wearing that gear. and they also call for trained monitors to make sure the suit are put on properly. hospital training is not the only issue that they're dealing with ebola. they're also determining what to do with the medical waste. ben tracy reports to the staggering amounts one patient can generate. >> reporter: hospitals around the country are scrambling to train their health care workers to protect themselves from the ebola virus. but plans for disposing of an ebola patient's medical waste were are not so clear. each potential patient can generate about eight 55-gallon barrels of hazardous materials each day. that's because their bodily fluids and everything they come in contact with, from hazmat suits, sheets, mattresses, cups and plates must be disposed of. at a recent congressional hearing, the head of the cdc said there's guidelineses to
dealing with waste. >> is ebola waste as contagious as waste from a patient? >> the waste can be decontaminated. the virus is not particularly hardy. it's killed by bleach and a variety of chemicals. >> reporter: the medical equipment can be sterilized or burned but many states do not use that because of air pollution concerns. the california hospital association sent a letter to senator barbara boxer warning that storage transportation and disposal of this waste will be a major problem. >> typically, you know, when you're a patient in the hospital, you generate a little bit of waste. and we know how to deal with that. but because of the volume and the highly contagious nature of those two factors combined, it does present some new learning for us as we go along. >> reporter: and it's not just hospitals. 140 55-gallon drums of contam natu

or by taking a picture of your card with your phone. then you can make purchases. then where you would normally swipe your card, you tap your phone to an area that has a signal. then you tap your fingerprint and you're done. >> what if someone steals your phone? >> what you do is logon from any phone or computer and suspend all transactions. >> fingerprints are kind of nice. it's either me or my cold dead hands? >> exactly. >> i do like that feature. >> gayle's back, everybody, gayle's back. >> you know what i mean, though? >> i know exactly what you mean. that's the truth. it's either you or your finger, however. >> so you tested it, did you like it? >> i tested. i really liked it. so basically, if you already have your phone in your hand which most people do these days,
mine is always glued to my hand. >> me, too. >> it's faster than dragging your wallet out of your purse and swiping your card. you tap it, you scan your fingerprint and you're done. >> any securities concerns? >> the security is the most important part. i think consumers are worried why would i put my credit card in my phone, that's dangerous. well, what happens is when you register your credit card with your phone. apple immediately contacts your bank, the token issuer issues a token. let's say it's an alias, and that's stored in your phone. once it gets to your merchant, it's as useful as an1b expired credit card. today, staples, a lot of people are worried if their credit card is at risk, if they used apple pay they would be okay. >> because all they have is a token. >> right. >> so how does it compare with other pay
wallet and pay pal? >> it is very similar to google wallet. pay pal is a little bit different because you check in and out when you get to a store. and then you're ready to go. but also three forms are really fast. and easy to use. >> it's free for the user. >> it's free for the user. >> and apple makes its money by? >> 'many gets a very small percentage of each transaction just like the banks and credit cards. >> sharon, she's a fan. thank you. good to see you. all work and no play can make you very cranky. but it can also cost you a whole lot of money. find out how much you sacrifice when you do not use your vacation days, crazy people. that's coming up next on "cbs this morning." we'll be right back. ♪ these are such good times leave your cares behind ♪ sweetie, i'd love a hazelnut. mom? dad? big uncle wayne? hot chocolate. green tea. uh, decaf, cuz.

but that's part of the game -- for me, it was a relief at least for now to not have to think about building an arena, buying a team, seattle, milwaukee. building an arena is a big project. i was glad to buy a team with an arena. >> what's interesting about this, you got a damn good team. >> a damn good team! yes, we are very good. and we have one of the most -- one of the most exciting teams. we got the top coach, yeah, baby! >> we're in the morning. what do you drink? >> i don't want to sound like a starbucks commercial, but it's got a lot of caffeine. >> mark cuban said to you have fun and just be yourself. and i read that you were a shy kid. i find that so hard to believe when i look at you sitting here today. your enthusiasm is infectious,

and we had some dustup type discussions. and i had been thinking there were really two scenarios. number one, buy it and then do the transition. or number two, if the board didn't want to buy it, fine. that might be a good time for transition. but what we really went through is buying it, but in a tough discussion, i said maybe it's better to hand it to a successor now, because we'd like you to stay. i said, no, let's do this now. let's make a transition. and wound up choosing the ultimate successor. and really the next generation of microsoft. it's about the cloud and hardware and software. >> are you and bill gates on good terms today? >> we've dusted up in our lives many times. but that stuff happens. we've done that before that. we've done that before. >> okay. >> your person who succeeded you
sat t satya nadella said it was bad karma for women to get a raise? >> well, sasha spoke about his personal experience was were actually he allowed good karma to happen and good things happened to him. and he was very fortunate. that's his genuine belief in life. but you do have people who don't necessarily get a fair shake through the process and particularly a group of women in technology, you know, that's probably a tougher place to be. and so, relating his personal experience probably not what that group needed to hear at that time, despite the fact that it would be a nice world if things worked that way. and it did work that well for satya, and it shows he's a lovely human being actually. >> what was your biggest achievement at microsoft and
your biggest disappointment? >> i grew microsoft from 30 people. and hundreds of thousands. 80 billion in revenue, 28 billion in profits. 120,000 people. every step of the way, it was part of one or two guys, me and bill, making that that. that was our child. we built the pc business. we sort of created the pc. we transformed the way businesses compute. and in this day and age, we don't have the mobile. >> you're not appreciating mobile? >> it's a little more complicated than that. all along the way, we appreciated mobile. it's a different say than saying hey you didn't put it the formula right. >> steve, we appreciate if you would send a private plane to take us to the clippers game.
