9:17 am
>> december 15th, we are in the peak of shopping season here for the holidays, and so even if the price of merchandise isn't changed a whole lot, what consumers get is a feeling of uncertainty about the future and that will put the cay bash on spending. >> reporter: would it not mean that consumers would get an earlier start, you know, for me it is december, but if i know the bryces are go up -- prices are going to go up, maybe i will start in october, november. >> excellent point. consumers have been starting earlier, and not just because this is a trend that hohnline shopping has -- that online shopping has brought about, but to avoid tariffs. >> best buy and apple had huge days when it came to their stock yesterday, if the new tariffs were to be imposed what would we have seen? >> increased pricing for sure. the thinnings that will be on -- things that will be on tariffs are all christmas items. these are the things that
9:18 am
people spend a lot of money on for holiday shopping. but -- and so there will be a delay, but i think the uncertainty can't be under estimated. consumers like to feel like they know what they can expect. >> so yesterday we had this positive day and right now we are experiencing a big drop, you know, on the dow jones. it is down more than 2%. you can say the same for the nasdaq and s&p 500. why this fear of a recession? we talk about the yield on the benchmark 10-year treasury neat and something we haven't seen thins 2005 which was a couple of years before the great recession. >> yeah. it is really -- jobs are number one. without a doubt, consumers respond to a feeling of certainty about their own jobs and after that they like predictability. even if it is bad news, they feel more confident than uncertainty and i think what we're getting now is uncertainty. compound that with the fact that so much of our economy is dependent on retail. about 30% of retail sale0s cur during the holiday season.
9:19 am
so even though there is this boost of confidence that holiday merchandise will be priced in such a way where consumers are going to snap it up anyway. the uncertainty is going to bring down confidence. >> i'm sitting here as a consumer, okay. great news yesterday. >> yeah. >> and then here we are today about this fear of a recession. not even a recession, does the fear of a recession outweigh or weigh more for what we experienced yesterday? >> that is exactly what it is. so even bad news feels good if people know what to expect. so they can adjust around that accordingly not knowing on uncertainty and coming and going of tariffs and economic news, this creates fear in the hearts of consumers which then causes them to pull back on spending which then ripples into, you know, economic disaster. >> you hate to see it, but it is something that we are experiencing at least this morning. >> yes, exactly. >> always a pleasure. thank you for coming in. >> thank you. >> back to you. coming up in a minute,

9:46 am
-- 18 18 high definition security cameras will go up in the neighborhoods. the camera also be installed along stockton street from washington, to the sacramento street tunnel. the city say this is project was already in the works before three men attacked two people in broad daylight and stole an expensive watch. and do you ever wish you could unlock your car door with the swipe of your hand? one woman is now doing just that. she is an engineer, video game programmer from texas and she figured out a way to implant a chip into her arm under her skin to start her tesla model 3. she chronicled her journey and the steps she had to make this a reality. here to tell us about what she had to do next in this process is a person who helped her do it. this morning we are speaking with the biohacker and founder and ceo, and you worked closely with amy on this project and
9:47 am
there are so many questions about it. let's start with the how you were able to do this. it sounds like a surgical procedure almost. >> well, actually we have been working on auto device called the flex one for some time and it take as smart card chip and makes it into an implantable form factor. this is it here. so you can see it is quite small. it is also very thin. so this is easily installed using a body piercing needle actually. you just use the needle to go under the skin like any body piercing and you slide it right into that piercing. >> and you had to put some bioprotective or a special kind of material around it so it didn't cause a reaction in her? >> yes. this is the biopolymer that we had custom formulated. it is like a plastic and it makes it very flexible and also very safe. >> the question is why. surely this is not just a matter of convenience. were you and amy trying to make a statement about this? this is the first time that you
9:48 am
know someone has been able to do something like this. >> we have been working on implantable devices for some time. it is not really a statement. it is more, in this case, a matter of convenience. unfortunately taking a test la key card apart and making an implant out of it means it is only really usable to open that car door and start that car, but product that we're working on, this thing can actually be used for multiple things. you can put the tesla key card on a bit coin or any other smart card application. so it is more about upgrading the human body to be able to do things and take your digital identity with you wherever you go no matter what device you're using, you can borrow someone's phone and all of your critical identity data and functionality stays with you. >> now, elon musk's company anuanced plans to -- announced plans to implant chips in people's brains and it has been touted to help people with parkinson's and other diseases,

9:50 am
of society with no gaps in a very short amount of time. >> and thank you again for speaking with us about this. >> sure. >> so interesting. >> that gap. when that first cell phone came out. oh! >> right. >> and then you always have to worry about -- we hear about our technology and our phones and computers getting hacked. if that is part of your body. >> i don't know that i'm in yet. >> if you lose your keys, you don't have to worry about it. >> i have never been early. i am the latest of all late adopters. a southern california fisherman has a big fish tale to tell. >> a killer whale decided to pay him auto visit. his surprise -- a visit. his surprise 10-minute adventure on the high seas. >> and tom brady a 49er? really? a former teammate explains the possibility of the san mateo quarterback fulfilling a childhood dream. >> would you not fault him? california phones offers free specialized phones... like cordless phones,
