Starting in February, all televisions will broadcast on digital signals. Here's what you need to do if you're still surfing the analog waves.
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.
The Lightning Round is extended in this CNBC.com exclusive feature.
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.
Today was a triumph of the technicals over the technological. Today was a day we touched the Dow 8,000 level -- down 20% from where Cramer last said to sell. When you hit that level, you catch buys. If you're using Cramer's strategy of buying stocks with bountiful dividends like CAT at 4.5% or Nucor at 4%, you caught a great price earlier in the day. Now you should be done buying and, as the high-yielders rally, it's time to start the selling. You can't buy again until the stock takes out your last low price and the yield's even bigger. That's the only strategy that's worked consistently in this crazy market -- stocks that bounce most have the biggest yields.
Cramer makes the call on viewers' favorite stocks.

Flash memory maker SanDisk has rejected a takeover bid from Samsung Electronics valued at $5.85 billion, or $26 a share, which the world's top maker of memory chips made late Tuesday.
There was a time not too long ago when Hewlett-Packard simply became "HP." I'm not talking about the "HP" it's always been known as, but "HP" as the official new name of the company, supplanting Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard, and joining the ranks of KFC as a company running the risk of forgetting history for the sake of convenience and short-hand.
Better than used, cheaper than new.
Software companies pay hundreds of millions of dollars to PC makers like Hewlett-Packard to install their photo tools, financial programs and other products, usually with some tie-in to a paid service or upgrade. With margins growing thinner than most laptops, this critical revenue can make the difference between profit and loss for the computer makers, says the New York Times
