    Hey, I have been using the weather widget since it came out and I was wondering...is it possible to apply whatever basic principles went into making the weather widget to make a scrolling stock ticker? I'm sure it would require a lot of bandwidth to download continuous updates for every stock...but would it be doable if it were just a few stocks (for example the stocks I am watching in my stocks.app application) updating every few minutes? In essence I'm looking for a widget to replace the stocks application in the same way the weather widget replaced its corresponding application. Thanks in advance.

    I don't even follow the stock market but this does sound pretty cool. I bet if someone refined it they could make some $
