3:02 am
you know, guys, we don't sit around and talk about fashion and hair styles a whole lot, but when i'm sitting around a poker table or under the lights of a pool table, nobody gives me any grief. it looks good, it looks natural, and that's all that anybody cares about. if people ask me about it, i'm not afraid to tell them, "yeah, man, i did something different. i got my hair cut." >> my sister actually saw the hair club commercial, and she dragged me out of the house on a saturday, says, "come on. let's go." i get there, right? i see the infomercial. they talked to me about, you know, what it would be like and what they could possibly do for me. after that point, i says, "i'm willing to give it a chance." i am so glad that i did. it has been the best thing that i have ever done, in terms of helping my self-esteem, right? looking like the woman that i can be, right? and i flaunt it, because i can. >> i first realized i started losing hair about 21, 22, and i was looking 32 rather quickly,

i had to order the brochure. the men on the commercial looked so natural, so real. i went into the center. it changed my life. i'm telling you, men, i felt so good about myself. i've never felt better. >> before i went to hair club, my hair was limp and lifeless and there was so little that i could do with it. i remember traveling outside on summer days having to wear a hat because my head would come home and i'd be -- i would be sunburned. i would get home, and it would be sunburned. now i don't have that problem. i can have nothing on my head, and i can ride around in a convertible with my hair flipping around, and it feels great. >> as a high diver, i've been everywhere, and i dive in front of thousands of people every day. and i walk right up close to every one of these people after the shows, and nobody can tell the difference. it feels great. i mean, the confidence that i have when i walk up to them is great, and it gives me the confidence when i'm standing up on the ladder to know that i look good, and i look good from all angles.

technology, it's very difficult for the user to be at fault. there is a well-controlled charging circuit, and there should be a good package that the cell lives in. both of those things should be designed to protect the user. >> reporter: industry advocates say these incidents are still rare and that users should always use compatible batteries and chargers. they say to avoid battery contact with metal objects, scott, such as coins, keys, or jewelry. >> pelley: vinita nair, thank you very much. there's a plan to give wider air passengers wider seats. we'll get to the bottom of it. and a young fan bags quite a gift from a legend when the cbs
