>> reporter: police departments across the country are worried thieves will take advantage, snapping stealth photos of your keys in public, then showing up at your doorstep with your key, unlocking your door with ease. and walking right in. >> the thing is, you wouldn't even know that you've been had. you still have your keys. you don't know someone's taken a photo of it. >> not until something happens to you. >> reporter: does it really work? my producer, charlie, that's him, is about to test it out. while i'm out of town for another story, he snaps a quick pick of my house key, lying on a table. then he uploads it to the site, gives his home address and, voila, just a few days later, duplicates of my keys arrive at his apartment. but instead of breaking in, charlie wisely waited for me to get back. >> all right. the moment of truth, does it work? >> let's open it and find out. >> reporter: just to show you and everyone at home, my front door, it is locked. let's triet key.
7:46 am
>> try the key. >> reporter: wow! >> it was that easy. now we're inside your house. that could have been a total stranger who walked up with that key. >> or a thief. we went to the ceo of keys duplicated. the good news is that we tried your technology. it works like a charm. >> great to hear. >> the bad news is, it worked like a charm and police say it could work like a charm for bad guys, too. >> yeah. there's no doubt that this could be used by somebody to copy somebody else's key. i just don't think it's very likely that it will happen. if it ever happens, it's going to be a jilted ex-lover or a disgruntled co-worker, people who have other ways of breaking in to your house. >> reporter: his company is still new and so far no reported cases. he says they require a valid e-mail address and credit card number, creating a paper trail. but, he admits, they don't verify it's your key or even your credit card. >> there's no i.d. verification.
7:47 am
the address i give you could be a bogus p.o. box. there's no other i.d. verification, is there? >> for i.d. verification, there is not. that's true. >> reporter: does that concern you? it concerns police we spoke to. >> security is our top priority. we're constantly improving it. of course it's a concern. and i say we're on it. >> reporter: but police say until that loophole is closed, this company aimed at convenience may pose a danger. by the way, keys duplicated said they will not copy car keys or high-security keys and will not accept pictures that are blurry or taken too far away. the advice from police, treat your keys like you would your driver's license or credit card. do not leave them laying around. by the way, roker, i saw you taking photos of the screen. i changed the locks on my house. good try. >> thanks for making us all feel a little bit more vulnerable. appreciate it. it's no secret that politicians will go to great

young people. college students constantly mention google as a place they want to go to work. let's now talk to those students out there still in college. let's talk to their parents and let's give them the key to unlock the door at google. who are you hiring right now? >> you want to be a smart creative. >> smart creative? define it for me. >> some kind of technical knowledge or passion, somebody who has some kind of business interest, but they have to be curious. they can't be boring. >> you call them learning animals and you evaluate them on something called googliness. >> everyone needs to have a rocket scientist. i said do we have a rocket scientist? yes, we hired a rocket scientist. what do they do? we don't know. >> what are some of the weird or unusual questions you ask them that lets you know they've got that googliness that you're looking for? >> i tend to ask them what surprised them. the reason that's my favorite question, it really allows you to understand how they think. if someone can tell you how
8:23 am
something surprised them, then they're telling you how they thought before the surprise. >> how did your interview go? >> when you were hired, did they ask you these kinds of questions? >> they asked all sorts of crazy questions. they asked me explain something complicated. i was a simple guy and didn't have something complicated to explain. i decided to explain courtship. >> between couples? >> dangling the hook and i explained i sent my future wife a dozen roses before i had ever met her. >> once you hire these people -- >> that's clear planning. >> it worked. >> once you hired these people, you say to them, imagine the unimaginable. >> yeah. >> think outside the box g for the moon shots. these are the projects other companies aren't doing. driverless cars, contact lenses that can read blood sugar levels, even a product delivering broadband to millions of people around the planet using helium balloons. you want your office environment
8:24 am
to have a little bit of science fiction in it? >> we want people to dream much higher. everybody ends up being a cog in a wheel. we want to find people who imagine a different world. by the way, not everything works. but when they work, these are global. >> is anything too crazy? is any idea too far fetched to at least listen to? >> no. >> no. >> and a lot of them really are crazy. >> are you -- go ahead. >> so the astro teller likes to say if you give them a project to build a car that gets 70 miles per gallon complete different than building a car that gets 500 miles per gallon. imagine what you're going to learn from the failures trying to build a car that gets 500 miles per gallon. >> i'm working for google, a smart creative and i come up with one of those moonshot ideas. why should i stick around and develop it with you guys? why shouldn't i leave the company immediately and go do it
8:25 am
on my own and turn around and sell it to you for hundreds of millions of dollars? >> one of the tricks is that these systems need a lot of people, lot of platform and a lot of tools and google keeps these people because we need the platform that we built up over the last decade to finish. innovation is on the top of others. >> do you worry about that person out there who has the next idea that will topple google? >> all the time. >> oh, yeah? do you stay up at night, lose sleep over that? >> the next challenge is going to be somebody comes out of a garage, just like google. >> eric, jonathan, thanks very much. the book is

8:33 am
conditions for the first weekend of fall. have a great day. >> that is your latest weather. hoda? >> al, thank you so much. after an explosive first season "the black list" is finally, finally back. here is a quick recap. james spader plays criminal master mind raymond red idingto who turns himself into the fbi and ends up helping catch the people who are on his black list. we have been eagerly awaiting the return of this show. now that it's back, time is of the essence for red. here is a sneak peek. >> i have nothing to do with this. >> then you have nothing to worry about. >> oh, you have no idea how i wish that were true. i have tens of thousands to worry about. fortunately you, my dear, are not one of them. >> why not? >> the person you just informed of my capture is going to release me within the hour. >> aren't we confident today? >> i'm confident every day. >> and it's red's confidence that has us all glued to our tvs. so glad you're here, james.
8:34 am
>> thank you. >> the reviews are crazy, as you've noticed. james spader is so good at being bad, we would follow him straight to the gates of tv hell. james spader is the reason -- >> is that where we are? >> that's where we are right now. did you have any idea, james, that this thing would take off the way it did? >> we had an inkling. >> and what was it about it that you thought was going to catch? >> i thought the juxtaposition, the humor and danger and drama and irreverence and also so many directions it could go with the plot line and the interweaving of the characters on the show and their past which then dictates their future. the show is inherently very exciting. >> you guys have been very good about keeping this next season under wraps. i was dying. i thought i was going to be able to see the very first one tonight. instead they sent us that little
8:35 am
clip. any hints of what is to come? >> the end of last season, the whole -- every character, we're really in disarray. >> yep. >> the second season opens immediately with rather acute adversity and the stakes have been raised for everybody involved in the show. and so the first season was really about sort of setting ground rules and the second season is opened up a lot more and things from the past are coming forward at the same time that they're facing very real adversity right out of the gate. >> do you love playing this guy? he seems like such a fun character. >> he is fun to spend the evening with, hoda. >> is he? he's terrifying, equal parts terrifying. we have a bunch of people outside. i don't know if you noticed but they're all decked out in your signature fedora.
8:36 am
i think al may be with them. al has a question from the crowd. hey, zblal that's right. we've got jeannine. what's your question for james? >> what's your favorite part of filming the show? >> all right. favorite part. >> i do like lunch. but i like it best when, in the most dire of circumstances, reddington is able to find the irreverence in that and how he deals with an adverse set of circumstances. >> okay. >> i really -- i like that. it's always very advicing to me. >> was the fedora, by the way, that everyone in the crowd is wearing, was that your idea when it came to your character? >> nochlt yes. yes, it was. of course, now it's ruined fedoras for my life. i've always worn hats but i've had to put my fedoras on the shelf and pull out my caps
8:37 am
and -- >> why do you think the fedora fit red so well, the character? >> well, you know, his life is one of diverse geography and climate. hats are imminently practical. if it starts rain, you're covered. if the sun is too bright, you're covered. he has no hair on his head. >> that was your idea, too. >> yeah. >> james, thank you so much. we wish you luck tonight. i don't think you're going to need it.

9:05 am
massachusetts, when they disappeared. let's bring in pentagon correspondent jim miklaszewski. he has more to tell. what happened here? >> all three of these afghan soldiers, two captains and a major, were in the u.s. for an annual training exercise that takes place at the national guard air base up there in cape cod. and it appears they were on some kind of saturday night field trip there at a shopping mall when they just disappeared from view. and they haven't been heard from since. now, according to u.s. officials, state, local, federal and even military law enforcement are seriously looking after to figure out where these three men may have disappeared to. and the big question is today, did they preplan this in advance before they ever got here, and why? or did it simply strike their fancy that they would make a spur of the moment decision to go on a sight-seeing tour of the
9:06 am
u.s.? those are questions that remain. now, u.s. officials insist that none of these three afghan soldiers had any kind of weapons. those would have been taken away after any kind of exercise. and they don't believe -- and it's not clear exactly why, but they say because of a very stringent vetting process, before they ever get to the united states, to figure out if they have any ties whatsoever to militant organizations or from afghanistan the taliban. these three were cleared to come to the u.s., not considered a threat. and, quite frankly, are not considered an imminent threat to americans even during this search. willie? >> wow, fascinating story. keep us posted on this. we'll see where this goes. mick, thanks so much. an update on a story we've been talking about for several days. our hearts go out to hannah graham's family. now authorities say this missing uva student, that there's a person of interest in this case. she's been missing since last
9:07 am
saturday and hannah's parents spoke out for the first time since their daughter's -- their only child's disappearance. here is what they said. >> this is every parent's worst nightmare. i'm certain that everybody in this room and those watching knows that what happened to hannah could happen to their child. hannah is also our little girl. she's our only daughter. she's james' little sister. hannah is also the oldest granddaughter and she's actually my parents' only granddaughter and she's enormously precious to us all. please, please, please, if you have anything, however insignificant you think it may be, call the police tip line with anything that just might help us to bring hannah home. >> wow! >> i mean, you hear that and you just say how can a person, if
9:08 am
you know anything, not come forward at this point? we've heard that same plea from the police chief there. certainly, we've talked a lot about this surveillance video. it shows hannah leaving her apartment around 9:30 pm last friday night. then we see her running in front of a gas station. at 1:00 am, there's surveillance video from the downtown area, pedestrian mall area. you see her and someone following behind her. >> they know who that is. >> they know who that person is, 32-year-old jesse matthew, who was seen with her. he is a nursing student or nursing aid of some sort. and apparently, according to police, jesse matthew went into the police station on saturday. he asked for a lawyer. they got him a lawyer. and then at some point, he just left the police station without being questioned. and it's a very strange story at this point. at some point later that day, he was chased by police. >> he went to albemarle, a neighboring county. he knew he was being followed.
9:09 am
>> yes. >> takes off at a high rate of speed, loses them. >> and now hasn't been seen since. >> hasn't been seen since. >> this morning, matt spoke with the chief of police for the area and here is what he to say about this. >> i believe jesse matthew was the last person she was seen with before she vanished off the face of the earth! >> so, you know, listen, at this point, there is no suspect. be very careful with these persons of interest is what they say at this point. but, you know, i guess police say get an attorney, come back and answer the questions. let us know what you saw. maybe can you help authorities find hannah or add some of the missing pieces to this puzzle. but to suddenly disappear and not answer these questions -- >> suddenly. >> he's not a suspect. >> no. >> it is fair to ask why he took off at a high rate of speed. >> why did he come to the police station, to begin with, asking for an attorney, and then take
9:10 am
off. >> listen, he may say i jetted off because i think they think i'm guilty. whatever the case is. you admitted you saw her. go in with your attorney, which is your legal right, and answer these questions. on a lighter note. you go to the ballpark, bring your glove, hope to catch a foul ball. can you imagine catching a ball in the final games of derek jeter, the great? >> hold on to that. >> bronze it. >> dad catches the ball. little girl, we've got to lose the -- little girl says, can i take a look? >> because i love you. >> oh, that's great. >> no! no! >> love that. >> how impressed -- >> the mom is laughing. she's like -- she's taken a picture of the thing. >> the daughter has a throw. that's a little kid. >> she has a good arm. good arm. eventually, they did get the ball back. we were at the game sunday, my

10:08 am
credit card. so it was a lot of money. anyway, it was awful. but i got so angry and enraged -- you get crazy. nothing. i just sulked and got out of the car and slammed the door. >> it wasn't his fault. >> i know. but i had to do something. i knew it wasn't his fault. he had to drive back in it. what puts you in a bad mood? >> that would do it. i don't like to arrive early and you're all excited and then you sit on the tarmac because the gate -- somebody is in the gate, you know. >> parked. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> they say 40% believe their bad mood got worse as they age. the older you get, the more -- >> yes. here's what triggers them. feeling fat, finances, feeling undervalued and overwhelmed, bad hair days, having nothing to wear and traffic. haven't you had one of those days where all of those things -- all of them. >> everything happens. >> yes. >> we want to hear about your experiences. >> we like to know what you say. >> what really sets you off. >> we have to do this because it is talking about getting stuck in traffic. oh, my god.

(announcer) are you dealing with hot flashes during menopause? why suffer more than you have to? you can do something different. because the landscape of options has changed. brisdelle is the only fda approved, non-hormonal option proven to reduce moderate to severe hot flashes during menopause. and the bedtime dose provides 24 hour relief. brisdelle is not for everyone. call your doctor if you have changes in mood or behavior, thoughts of suicide, or a high fever, stiff muscles or confusion, signs of a possible life-threatening condition. abnormal bleeding, bone fractures restlessness, vision problems, and impaired judgment and motor skills may occur. don't take brisdelle if you are pregnant, taking maois thioridazine, pimozide, or are allergic to paroxetine. tell your doctor about all your medicines like tamoxifen, triptans, or paroxetine.
10:13 am
side effects include nausea, vomiting, tiredness, and headache. change is in the air. it's time to talk to your doctor about the only fda approved, non-hormonal option. brisdelle. ♪hey! i found a happy space... after-school snacking should be fun and nutritious that's why whole grain is first in every general mills big g cereal. what matters most should always come first. general mills. goodness first. sure wish youactually... bring layaway back. that way i could split the payments into little bite-size chunks. i mean you feel me right? yeah uh, sir... oh! layaway is back, with no opening fee. backed by savings catcher. walmart. it's about getting to the finish line. in life, it's how you get there that matters most. like when i found out i had a blood clot in my leg. my doctor said that it could travel to my lungs and become an even bigger problem. so he talked to me about xarelto®. >>xarelto® is the first oral prescription blood thinner
10:14 am
proven to treat and help prevent dvt and pe that doesn't require regular blood monitoring or changes to your diet. for a prior dvt i took warfarin, which required routine blood testing and dietary restrictions. not this time. while i was taking xarelto®, i still had to stop racing, but i didn't have to deal with that blood monitoring routine. >>don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems.
10:15 am
xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today. -- spader, you can call him red. >> he plays criminal mastermind turned informant red reddington on "the black list." last season left us hanging when liz keen discovers her father may still be alive. >> stop it. this season everyone wants to know could it be red? >> could it be? >> could it be? >> hmm. >> we were not given, as we usually are, a, you know, the

10:17 am
season. more are will probably want to watch it this season. if you weren't familiar with last season, do you need to rewatch all or can you -- >> no, it is streaming now on netflix, first season is, but it -- no, the show really functions fairly well, i think, as being, you know, the episodes being stand alone and but still serving a greater story, that we sort of kept people up on as we're going along. and the balance of that has been very important because of the fact that there is so much material out there, programming out there that people jump around from thing to thing. but the amazing thing about our show, which is really been lovely is the people that are taping our show, our -- the ratings or the viewers, the amount of viewers jumps every week. >> on the dvr. >> yeah, on the dvr. an enormous amount. >> for us around here, to be able to say the runaway nbc hit. >> we like it. >> it has a ring to it.
