welcome back. a prediction made about the use of our smartphones. 2011 will be the year we use our smartphones more and our home computers less. that will translate into
6:15 pm
increasing costs to go wireless. starting next week sprint tacks on a $10 monthly fee for smartphone customers. something that verizon and at&t have already done. consumers can save if your carrier offers it. watch your minutes very closely. some websites will help you do that and whenever possible make sure your smartphone works with wi-fi. there are so many websites now that the internet is getting too crowded. nbc bay area's business and tech reporter scott budman spent the day at a company working to free up space. it's good that there is not that much space. we're doing a good job of putting stuff on the web. >> we want to keep doing it with startups out there. we're talking about a lot of space here. it might be coming just in time. this is not exactly a y2 case scenario but the internet is running out of numbers that make up addresses so a local company
6:16 pm
is developing a new set of numbers. when you type in a web address, say you see a webpage and take it from there. what you don't see is the actual internet address. a series of numbers that identify places for your digital traffic to go. it's called an ip address and the number of worldwide ip addresses now around 4 billion is about to max out. >> the realities behind that is all those names are converted into numbers and those numbers come from a very finite pool. that pool is running out. >> reporter: rows and rows of servers, climate controlled under 24/7 security keep track of those addresses. they are also preparing for a new set of numbers to handle all of the new websites and their addresses. think of it like license plates went from number six to the number seven. a whole new set of plates. this will be a whole new set of web addresses. >> this number is more than the
6:17 pm
grains of sand that you see on a beach or even in the whole world. it's more than the number of pennies that you would use to build a life size empire state building. these numbers are big. >> good news for all those startups looking for a website. the new set of numbers is set to debut very soon. good news for those of us who like to surf. we probably won't able to tell. >> if we do our job right as network providers and internet service providers and broadband providers, the end user will not notice this. >> we'll keep typing while the numbers and servers keep humming along. the internet itself has been around for more than three decades. one of those responsible for inventing it said when it was created it was an experiment and all involved thought 4 billion addresses would be enough. now google is one of those moving onto the next address platform. >> al gore's internet. when you have something to say, you say it on facebook or you
6:18 pm
might even tweet it. even during your work day. beware, your boss is crack down. the rant may get you fired. there's a growing number of cyberspying bosses. with more than 500 million people linked to social networks, many are talking. a lot. sometimes too much. >> i don't post anything stupid. i'm always aware. >> reporter: glen never thought his random thoughts on facebook would cause problems until his comments on the tragic shooting in tucson. his posting -- >> you can't shoot people you disagree with. >> reporter: a day later he got a letter from his boss at coach for kids where he volunteered since 2008. >> it's unfortunate that this guy has come but i regrettably must sever the relationship with

you so that we don't become involved in support or opposition of an issue. >> it was like a kidney punch. i don't know. i don't believe it. all this work is gone. >> in the past two years there's been an enormous boom in people getting terminated for this. >> the civil rights attorney says employers have every right to and do snoop around employee's personal pages. if the employer can access something it finds objectionable even if it's legal, it could be grounds for firing. employees in the private world often misinterpret freedom of speech. >> unless somebody works for a governmental entity, the federal government, generally they have no free speech rights. >> the scrutiny applies to your work computers. 66% of employers monitor employees internet connections with concerns over litigation and productivity and also fears about security breaches. for glen bush, the story ends on a positive note. after firing him, coach for kids
6:20 pm
allowed him to return. his lesson is one he believes anyone can learn from. >> you better know what your posting and be comfortable withstanding up and showing the world. >> reporter: alex perez, nbc news. >> you have to know it's not just you but your friends. monitor what your friends are saying and posting about you. try google yourself once a month to see what information about you has been posted. >> good to know. getting more for your gallon of gas. california will work with the feds on a proposal to try to increase vehicle fuel efficiency. the new standards will be for cars and trucks built between 2017 and 2025. the state may be willing to compromise with automakers a bit and not adopt separate stricter rules. california first adopted greenhouse gas rules in 2004. the new proposal should be released by september 1st. how does the other half live with heavy jackets maybe and earmuffs? look at the video. around here is beautiful. in the northeast it's deadly. some places along the east coast

6:23 pm
plenty of sunshine coming our way. if you are traveling east, we showed you that cold weather video from the northeast and we're also dealing with some rain in atlanta that could delay you and up into the northeast more snow expected from boston down to washington d.c. coming up back here at home, we'll have details on a rainfall update. the weather is great but we need the rain. >> thanks. lights, camera, rebate. the new incentives to bring more big budget movie projects here to the bay area. >> remembering the man who proved you are never too old to flex muscles.

deficits and debt in a responsible way. >> that video preview was e-mailed to supporters over the weekend. just before the speech, house republicans will vote on rolling back the federal budget to what the country spent two years ago. democrats claim massive cuts could cost thousands of jobs. insiders say they will play close attention tomorrow night to whether lawmakers will go beyond sitting together and maybe even cheering together during president obama's speech. let's bring in larry for a glimpse of what we should expect tomorrow. the softball question is why is it so important but really what's this mean for the next two years for president obama in the oval office? >> let's look at this in a context that you would be familiar with in the past. a football game. first half he had all of the players. other side had virtually done. he scored at will and he did not only with health care. he scored with financial reform. banking reform. student loan reform. all kinds of things. amazing amount of legislation. second half, guess what? the other team has new players now. >> what's the public perception of president obama?
6:41 pm
did he perform and do those things in terms of public policy? >> a lot of people are happy with a number of things the president did. health care thing, pretty evenly divided. as we saw going into tucson and the election, the midterm election, he was pretty evenly divided in terms of public opinion. after the election when he reshot the republicans, he said we have to work together. i took a shellacking. that's when his standing with the public really increased 8 to 10 points. he comes in a much better stead if you will but still the republicans now have an awful lot of firepower. they have control of the house. they're not going to roll over like they did before when they didn't have any power and for that reason he has to be more accommodating while at the same time defending all that he accomplished. >> what happened in tuesdcson at of rhetoric, is it talk or will we see it happen in the next weeks? >> for the first time in memory we'll have republicans and democrats not splitting the aisle but rather sitting with
6:42 pm
one another. that's a nice symbolic show. come wednesday it's back to work. come wednesday the republicans are going to vote bit by bit to attempt to repeal health care in the house. democrats in the senate where they have majority will try to fight it off. the president will veto if it gets to him. come wednesday they'll try to pair back the budget. the president talk about cutting back spending. republicans talk about cutting back spending. how much, when and where they will grapple over. t >> first couple years it was big money and big government but now move back to center. >> moving center. he wants to pair back spending. the question is where will be it paired back? republicans want to cut more than democrats and there lies the need for some sort of agreement, consensus, we'll see what happens. in the end, raj, there are three words we think about starting
6:43 pm
tomorrow. the three words are the 2012 presidential election. >> that begins tomorrow night. thanks for your time as always. back to you. >> thank you, gentlemen. let's bring in lawrence for sports. >> aaron rodgers idolized the 49ers quarterbacks. he used to wear a joe montana t-shirt under his shoulder pads. we'll follow him from green bay to texas. we're keeping tabs on whether the baengals quarterback talks his way into a trade. tonight we hear about the mini turn around. are happy days here again? sports is coming up. here's jeff. >> that's right. we're tracking more warm weather this week.70-dteree atmper tureo ome 70-degree temperatures troororw coming up.
