    Market recap: Stocks tumbled after Bernanke poured cold water on hopes for quick Fed action to boost the economy despite an "unusually uncertain" outlook. Financials rallied on a strong report from Morgan Stanley (MS +6%), while Yahoo's (YHOO -8.5%) weak quarter dragged techs lower. NYSE decliners led advancers by about five to two. Treasurys and the dollar rose.

    James Altucher loves his Apple (AAPL -2.1%) gadgets, but headline risk from the iPhone4 antenna problem prompts him to endorse three other tech stocks: 02Micro (OIIM +7.8%), which does the LED lighting for iPads and currently trades for only two times cash; KLA-Tencor (KLAC +4.1%), which will benefit from Intel's (INTC) growth; and Yahoo (YHOO +3.1%), which will win big from its search outsourcing deal with Microsoft (MSFT).

    Google (GOOG +2.3%) fought to stay in China because of the country's obvious growth potential, and firms that got out of the country earlier, such as eBay (EBAY) and Yahoo (YHOO), haven't been able to regain a foothold. But many observers say Google wimped out, providing China with a crippled search engine that effectively censors not just objectionable web pages but just about everything.

    The Supreme Court rejects a bid to expand patent protections to business methods, in a case brought by inventors looking to patent a method for hedging weather-based risk in commodities trading. Google (GOOG) and a group of internet retailers argued that business-method patents harm innovation, while Yahoo (YHOO) and IBM (IBM) have argued the ruling leaves innovaters exposed.

    "At $14, $15, $16, Yahoo is too low," CEO Carol Bartz (YHOO -2.9%) tells shareholders while vowing to improve on current 6% operating margins. She likes the search-and-advertising partnership with Microsoft (MSFT -1.2%) because search has "frankly become almost a commodity," adding that Microsoft will now be in charge of maintaining the "plumbing" that will support their combined search effort.

    With search still important to Yahoo (YHOO), CEO Carol Bartz promises a redesigned, upgraded experience in October, admitting the company got behind "while search has gotten so pretty."

    When Yahoo's (YHOO) Carol Bartz dropped the F-bomb in response to a critic, she crossed the line between earthy candor and desperation. Investors should be wary, because "shooting the messenger is never a sign of strength."
