Search Jim Cramer's "Mad Money" trading recommendations using our exclusive "Mad Money" Stock Screener. This program last aired June 25, 2014. NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- It's an incredibly confusing time... to be an investor, Jim Cramer told his "Mad Money" TV show viewers. With such a flood of facts and data flowing from companies, analysts and government sources, it's increasingly difficult to figure out what matters and what doesn't, said Cramer. That's why his book Get Rich Carefully aims to separate the over-hyped and unimportant from what really moves the markets. The first tip from Cramer's book is on unemployment data. Every week the Labor Department releases jobless claims, but this number can largely be ignored, said Cramer. Also ignore a similar metric released by payroll processing...

Term Of The Day: 'Google Dorking' (GOOG)

Business Insider - 29 Aug 2014 00:37
Term Of The Day: 'GoogleIf you are a competent internet user, chances are you've done something called "Google Dorking." And now the Feds have issued a warning to U.S. businesses to be on the lookout for Google Dorking... activity as a sign of hackers. Google Dorking means using Google's advanced search techniques to dig up information on the web that doesn't easily pop up during a normal search. Our favorite is a feature called "site," which lets you search a single website for a keyword or photos. (Here's a tutorial on how to use that.)

The Huffington Post - 29 Aug 2014 00:21
Disney Seeks Drone Patents ForDisney theme parks are known for going above and beyond when it comes to the attractions, characters and thrill rides that make for magical memories, and a new toy could soon be added to the Disney... experience: drones. The entertainment giant recently applied for three drone patents, all for use in aerial light shows. Visitors could see giant illuminated characters above them in the air, or even see floating pixels, or "flixels," replacing firework shows. Washington Post tech policy reporter Andrea Peterson stopped by HuffPost Live on Thursday to chat about the possibility of Disney employing this technology. "One of the things really important to think about is that these are three patent applications that were filed last week. Companies patent things that they don't intend to roll out all...
