TickerMenu 1.0 ships
The Highly Technical Doohickey Company has launched TickerMenu 1.0, a Mac OS X Menu Bar application that tracks stocks. Users can choose which stocks to track by entering a stock's symbol, and the display is color-coded to instantly show a gain (green) or decline (red) in stock value. Clicking on TickerMenu in the Menu Bar launches a drop-down window, with extended information on a stock's performance and options for switching to other stocks. The window can also launch one of six financial websites for further research.
TickerMenu works with Mac OS X 10.4 or later and costs $9.
