  • Clueless at Microsoft? Monday, 12 Jan 2009 | 11:42 AM ET
    Microsoft

    Among computer geeks of a certain age Microsoft has long been synonymous with the word evil. I think that's giving the brass at Microsoft a little too much credit. To me, they're just clueless. Steve Ballmer should just go ahead and fire everyone over the age of, say, 35, and let people who really understand how computers are used run the show.

  • Voice of Cramerica: Mea Culpa Friday, 21 Nov 2008 | 1:44 PM ET

    It's time for a minor mea culpa. On last night's show Jim talked about the lack of pin action off of Hewlett-Packard's positive earnings preannouncement. We concluded that good news for Hewlett-Packard couldn't be extrapolated to the rest of tech because we'd heard so much bad news and so many negative forecasts, for example from Intel spacer. Then I, like a doofus, went and wrote a post about pin action, or more specifically the lack thereof.

  • HP: No Pin Action, But Still Packs a Punch Wednesday, 19 Nov 2008 | 11:56 PM ET

    As Cliff Mason noted earlier today, Cramer likes to talk about "pin action" a lot -- the effect that one company's good fortune usually has on other, related companies (parts manufacturers, for example). The key word, however, is "usually." In the disastrous market we have these days, you can't even depend on this pin action any more.

  • AMD Now A-OK? Saturday, 15 Nov 2008 | 12:04 AM ET

    Cramer's prediction yesterday that tech hasn't seen bottom yet and was due for more beating came true today, with most big tech names ending lower. One of the most beaten-down of these companies was AMD. Still, even with the dismal tech sector in the dismal overall market, there's still money to be made IF you're willing to speculate on battered stocks like -- you got it -- AMD. But "battered" doesn't even do this company justice: it's down 67% for the year and had another bloody session today.
