0 ohm resistor

  I've seen jumpers inside TVs before soldered right along with resistors. R they those staple looking things?
What are they used for?
What are they?

Actually, wire wound resistors do have inductance. As far a wire, it's about 20nH/inch.

Yup... zero ohm jumpers can be/are used for configuring different options. They are also used a as "bridge". When you have to keep cost's down, manufacturers use them to avoid having to go to a double sided PCB. A few "jumpers" are a LOT cheaper than drilled plated via's on a multi-layer PCB (as in double sided and up).
