♪ welcome to the weekend, everyone. we got a great lineup for you this morning, including a chat with comedian beau burnham. the youngest comedian to get his own comedy special but now he is railing against the social media that catapulted his career. our surprising and inciteful chat is ahead. they were nicknamed the silicon cowboys. three friends from texas who decided to to a ibm. find out how their little idea in a diner became a multibillion dollar business. >> live concerts, they may have the most impressive performance on stage. see how these sign language interpreters are fascinating fans and performers alike. one day after dropping his longstanding claim that president obama was not born in the united states, a claim that fueled several conspiracy
7:04 am
theories, trump has ignited two more. now he says his opponent hillary was behind the so-called birther movement. >> the second time in the presidential campaign, trump is, again, raising the spector of violence against clinton and joking about his arming her secret service agents. errol barnett is in our washington bureau with the latest. >> reporter: good morning. after enjoying a rise in the polls in a week in which he stuck mostly to the script, it seems that donald trump is back to the flash bang style of politics his supporters come to enjoy but blowback today after the republican nominee made another ad-lib reference to violence and reunited controversy with a sitting president. >> i think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons and disarm. >> reporter: donald trump seemed to turn gun control into a threat against hillary clinton last night in miami. >> take their guns away. she didn't want guns? let's see what happens to her.
7:05 am
>> reporter: this after a day walking back his refusal to admit the nation's first black president is an american-born citizen. >> president barack obama was born in the united states, period. >> reporter: trump made that same administration in a "the washington post" interview gave new life to a conspiracy theory he has peddled since 2011. >> why don't they show his certificate? you're not allowed to be president in this country if you are not born here in the united states. >> reporter: he traded for a new legend. >> hillary clinton and her campaign of 2008 started in the birther controversy. >> reporter: neither clinton nor anyone in her 2008 campaign claimed then senator barack obama was not born in the united states. though, some clinton supporters spread the idea through anonymous e-mails. it's an issue even the president took a moment to address
7:06 am
yesterday. >> i was pretty confident about where i was born. i think most people were as well. >> we will not elect a chief figure of the united states of america. >> reporter: members of the congressional black caucus said trump has moved beyond dog whistle politics to the house of wolves. >> donald trump is nothing more than a two-bit racial arsonist who, for decade, has done nothing but fan the flames of bigotry and hatred. >> reporter: his opponent waved no time in holding trump accountable for his years as a myth maker. >> barack obama was born in america, plain and simple, and donald trump owes him and the american people an apology. >> reporter: what is interesting is the media attention has taken focus away from an investigation into donald trump's foundation by the new york attorney general. but all of this is likely to serve as material for hillary clinton at the first presidential debate, september 26th. >> errol barnett in washington,
7:07 am
thank you. take a closer look what is going on in campaign 2014. here is phillip bump. there was a speech by donald trump this week but nobody is talking about it because of what has happened here. what do you see as the potential strategy behind what trump said regarding the president's birth at this point? i mean, he finally said he was born in the united states but then drops the hillary bomb on it. >> right. it seems the most likely explanation, and it's somewhat baffling, so this is the most likely explanation is that they knew this was going to come up in the debate. the debate is monday of the week following next. they knew that he was going to be pressed on this issue because it's an outstanding question. i think they were trying to have him say he was born in the united states and be done with it. the problem is the way he did it. part of the challenges that the american voters think this is a cause for concern. he didn't apologize for having done it that way.
7:08 am
so i'm not sure it's going to have any real political benefit for him. >> are we being distracted from the realish? we heard errol bring up that topic, in addition to the speech. a specific investigation is under way. are we being distracted by it all? >> i think to an extent, yes. the problem there is so much about donald trump which makes him an unusual and fairliy odd candidate for the presidency, right? these past things we have to parse through old business records and his foundation and hard to make it focus what we should be paying to as a presidential candidate but he hasn't spent a lot of time putting up policy issues or articulating what he will do. in august 2015 he said i don't people care about the policy positions i put out there. i think the press does. i think some element of the press does but he makes it hard to evaluate what would do as president. >> the polls are tighten around this point, don't they? >> that's correct.
7:09 am
you look back, they all tightened at about the same point, yes. >> reporter: where do the candidates stand the last week? >> it's been a remarkable turnaround since a month ago. hillary clinton was enjoying the post-convention bounce and her support is starting to wane a little bit. registered voters to a bigger pool of people which is likely voters which tend to favor republicans and why we are seeing some of this narrowing. we are in a place it truly is anyone's game. a month ago it looked like hillary clinton had this locked up and that is no longer the case. but these things change rapidly. >> let's talk specifically about florida and ohio, battleground states. >> florida and ohio, donald trump has moved into a small lead in both of those states. we tend to see state polls mirror what is happening nationally. we do a lot more polling nationally because it gives us a broader picture. races that were close in ohio
7:10 am
and florida have moved towards donald trump. not enough by himself to win. i looked at this earlier this week. the ten states closer right now hillary clinton only needs to win 14 electorate votes in that state and donald trump need to win over a hundred of them. but if the race moves toward donald trump that becomes a much easier task. >> fascinating the way it turns up and down, up and down. >> yes it gets close but this race seems to be moving along. >> phillip bump, thank you. tomorrow morning on "face the nation," guests kellyanne conway and john lewis. zika infections have been found in miami beach. the area now covers four and a half square miles up from 1 and a half square miles. five new travel-related zika cases are confirmed in that area. they are controlling the mosquitoes with a larvicide.

7:13 am
helps to blot out the violence and the fear, but nothing can disguise the ugly star that divide this city between the government and its armed opposition. 13-year-old al hasan is giving us a tour of her neighborhood on the front line. this curtain, what is that for? the snipers, just a few hundred yard away, are opposition fighters who have aimed their weapons at syrian army positions deep in this neighborhood. did you lose some friends in this war? oh, yes, i've lost many, she says. some were killed by mortars or snipers. some just left the country. like everyone who lives here, can remember when fellow citizens of aleppo lived down that road beyond the barrier, not men with guns. what was the worst time you can remember? one night, she says, a mortar actually landed in our house.
7:14 am
it was a concrete apartment like these, so a miracle no one was killed. with courage beyond her years, aya has got her eyes on the future. i want my city whole again and at peace. as for people on the opposition side of that sniper shield, we weren't able to meet them because we are not allowed to cross the line. but they are besieged at the moment by the syrian army and are really desperate straits. they are the ones who are waiting for the aid that is stuck at the turkish border. >> elizabeth palmer, thank you. there were renewed calls this week for better computer security after former secretary of state colin powell's e-mails were hacked. cyberthieves warned that no computer system is safe. one low tech solution is being practiced by the head of the fbi and the founder of facebook. jeff pegues has the story. >> reporter: security officials
7:15 am
say hackers believe every system can be broken into, even the web camera on your computer. >> i could break into your phone. i could break into your tablet. >> reporter: tyler wood is a cybersecurity expert with inspired e-learning. >> if you're not using it, turn it off. you also want to make sure that you are not using unsecured wireless access because anyone else that is on that same wireless network has the ability to sniff the traffic and potentially get into your computer that way. >> reporter: just this week, fbi director james comey raised a few eyebrows when he suggested that you put a piece of tape over the web camera to prevent someone from turning it into a surveillance tool. >> you go into any government office, we all have our little camera things that sit on top of the screen. they will have a little lid that closes down on them. >> reporter: facebook founder

7:32 am
>> reporter: the report published this week in the journal of jam internal medicine said they launched the campaign to repudiate the negative attitude toward sugar. one article shows an intentional effort to deceive the public by stating there was no doubt that the only dietary flsks required to prevent heart disease was dietary cholesterol. >> this study has very important lessons for today because companies are still funding a lot of research and people need to be skeptical about that research because we know that research that is funded by food companies tends to come out with results that are very beneficial to that -- to the sponsor's products. >> reporter: in a statement, the sugar association admitted it should have exercised greater transparency in all of its research activities but when the studies in question was published, funding disclosures

more than 3 million children age 7 to 17 were treated for soccer-related injuries in emergency rooms. the rate of injuries more than doubled in that 15-year span. if you're going to the e.r, you got a serious injury, what are the most common? >> we see a variety of injuries that come into the emergency room. this study looks at the rates of concussion, the rates of soft tissue injury and the rates of fractures coming into the emergency room, and they are much higher than they have been in 1998. so we see an increase in the rate of injury and an increase in the prevalence and an increase in the number of people actually playing soccer. this is for youth sports at age 7 to 17. >> chris, concussion in kids are, obviously, particularly of concern. >> they are. >> is the rate going up, do you think, because people are more
7:41 am
aware of it, we are way more conscious of them now? >> the rate of concussion has increased dramatically since 2008 and 2009. the rate increases quite a bit looking at the trend line. this started around 2009 when the first legislation occurred in the state of washington and this really happened because of some injuries to some kids that ended up going back immediately after they had a concussion and play. >> do you think that rate of concussions is actually going up or just it's being more report because people are more aware? >> people are more aware now because of the rules to come out. so the number one thing to do, if you have a concussion, is get out of play. to be assessed on the sideline. and people are aware of that now. so they are actually taking action. the coaches, the athletic trainers and parents. >> parents are the ones that often have to start that dialogue. >> that's right. with the nfl season in full swin swing, fans are looking to show

their team pride and among the options are revised color rush uniforms. the first color rush jerseys introduced last season were hard for colorblind people to see. for example, last november, the new york jets and buffalo bills had monochromatic all green and all red jerseys and making it hard for some tv viewers to tell the difference between the years. this year, after consulting with medical experts, the nfl introduced new color friendly jersey combos. we saw on thursday night, jets and bills game, new york wore all white just to be safe. >> isn't that funny? i bet a lot of people at home diagnosed themselves as colorblind. >> i am. >> are you? >> yes. i see some colors but then it's like the color is gone. >> it used to alarm my mother when i would look at the television and say look at that man in the green shirt? and there was no man in a green shirt! >> up next, if you think the self-driving car is still decade

>> what does the future hold for this soon to be booming business? let's ask air thompson. it feels like we got here slowly and yet very, very quickly. >> like bankruptcy. slowly, slowly, then all of a sudden, which might happen to some of the car companies ironically. it's amazing. you have three different categories of players here. the car manufacturers, ford, tesla, toyota, who are moving from driver cars to driverless cars. tech company google is moving into the car manufacturing business for the first time. then fascinatingly you have uber which is not a hardware company, it's a software company and a services company. their advantage might be, all right, if you have this fleet of autonomous vehicles it's not the ownership just the ability to access the driving itself with the push of a button. >> the technological advances is remarkable for these things. what is the latest at this point? >> the first idea for autonomous vehicles it wasn't the vehicles that would be autonomous, it was the roads themselves.
7:48 am
the roads would have magnets that would carry the cars around. >> that's what i thought would happen. >> right. but, instead, all of the technology just poured into the car itself. on the screen you can see, they have lacers and camera sensors and they have these mapping technologies because you don't just send the car out into the street and hope it finds its way. you also often have a mapping technology that canvasses the entire area and world to direct the car itself. >> uber did a test run in pittsburgh. did they learn any lessons? it seems pittsburgh is an interesting city to test this out in. >> one of the people had an interesting phrase where he said testing automated driving and your uber is like to learn how to ski with the black on the mountain. you have to figure out how to drive around the hardest part of the city than the easy. because pittsburgh is so topographically weird with the rivers and hills and the fact you have terrible ice in the winter, if the cars can master that city, they can master about
7:49 am
any stich . >> the dark cloud hanging over this it could eliminate millions of jobs, obviously taxi drivers, et cetera. is that real? >> by one account, driving is the most salaried activity among american pen men when you add together the taxi drivers and limo drivers and 1.5 million people are signed up to drive on uber, all of these people are in line to be hit by the automation wave. i do think potentially an enormous problem. it's very difficult to know what to do with it right now, because there really hasn't been anything quite like this maybe since you had robots sent to manufacturing factories or before that, the tractor replacing horses on the farm. this would be an unbelievably revolutionary and disrupt the process. >> at this point we are in unchartered waters and we have seen uber do this before. what will they do in term of
7:50 am
regulation? >> i feel like it's a chaotic system where the tiniest flutters of the butter fly wing can have a monsoon over a country. there is a crash, i feel that changes everything because it changes consumer's sentiment and people stop seeing driverless cars as the future and start seeing them as a potential menace. i think a lot is undecided and unknowable, but it really is a confluence of factors that is going to lead to the huge popularity of these vehicles. it's the insurance, it's whether or not 20 and 30 something's buying their second car are interested in a driverless technology or whether they want their hands another wheel and feel that control. so this psychological and government factors here. >> the other thing that is interesting with the hack we have seen lately and so much computer electronics now in cars, you wonder if a car can get hacked. >> right, yes. they are calling it ransom ware.
7:51 am
a hacker using software to control a car and then demand ransom in exchange for the person getting control of the car back. because of the technology, itself, doesn't really exist, we don't know how easy it's going to be for people to bypass that technology and hack the car themselves but we have seen problems like this, you know, in lots of other software cases as well, e-mails, et cetera. >> still incredible to think we are already here. eric thompson, thank you so much. >> thank you. up next, moving into the white house. we will show you how you could live here and you don't have to be elected president to do it. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

the year was 1982. when it came to personal computers, ibm was the only game in town, until a small houston start-up founded by three friend came along and proceeded to beat big blue at its own game. the company was compact computers. this david and goliath story is chronicled in a new documentary silicon cowboys. >> it wowed audiences at this year's south by southwest film festival in austin. here is the moment they came up with their design of a ground breaking portable computer. >> we walked in, looked around. picked a booth that was kind of themselves. we had not thought of taking anything with us so we turned over the place mat, borrowed a pencil from the the waitress and proceeded to describe the

8:12 am
this idea? >> we actually did discuss the mexican restaurant but it didn't last very long, because we want to get into the personal computer field somehow, swome sway. we didn't think it would be a pc. we thought it would be something peripheral or something related because it seemed like too big of a thing for three guys out of houston to start. >> your idea was make it portable and take it to work. >> the idea came to my head after we were studying to figure out what we were going to do. when the idea for a portable computer that could actually run all of the software already out there, specifically the software written for the ibm pc. that is when the chill went down my spine. literally, if we can do this, that would be so great. >> yeah. >> you talked about the david versus goliath aspect of this. just how big was ibm at that point and what happened to companies that tried to take them on? >> ibm was the computer industry. they were mainframe computers and had all of the government
8:13 am
contracts in the '60s and '70s and then put out the ibm pc in 1991 and took over that market for a short time there. and they would flex their muscle and any company that would sort of try to go in and compete with them, they would essentially go to their lawyers and put them out of bounds. most of them were, unfortunately, they were coping ibm's code. and compact was smart enough to do it the right way and they reverse engineered that ibm without coping the code exactly and did it without putting themselves in a situation where ibm could come in and crush them. >> in that vein, ibm eventually came out and it their own portable pc. what happened to that? and did you feel like, at the time -- did you guys have any sense at the time of being the first, the guys that would set the stage for facebook? >> not at that point. and that was one of the scariest times of my life. everybody in the industry, press, stock press, because we had just gone public, compact is
8:14 am
done. ibm is coming out with a portable. like they had done with apple in the pc world, they just passed them by but it wasn't ork out that way. several reasons but in the end we pushed their portable out of the market and not the other way around. >> in the first year you took over a hundred million in sales and at its peak, 3 billion? >> the year before i left it was 6.3 billion. >> at any point in the beginning did you think you're nuts? >> how about quitting your jobs without a job? >> you left texas instruments? >> we left t.i. we had saved up money. actually, we had borrowed money to be able to last six months so we could give ourselves a little runway to find an idea and get venture capital funding. we knew we eventually had to get funding. >> what happened to that name, the compact name that we had all heard of? >> eventually, hp, they did merge and well-documented about that merger and people have
8:15 am
different opinions of it but they eventually phased out the compact name i think in 2013 so it stuck around a while and long after rod had left, obviously. it stuck around for a little while. when we started making this film, we told people we are making a film about compact, so many people said, oh, i remember compact! my first computer was a compact. they look at that sewing machine handle that they used to slug around in airports. we knew people would connect to this story. >> if you were in that coffee shop again today mapping something out, what would you be trying to create now? >> you know, i can't tell you what exactly it would be, but i know it would be in the area of mobile computing. something you can carry around with you but use the internet and it would probably have a lot to do with social media. that is where the three magic ingredients are now. >> rod canyon and cajason cohen thank you.

xarelto® is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking 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, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for 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. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto.
