GagaMarkets tracks stocks
GagaFactory has released GagaMarkets, a desktop display of stock markets in 30 countries. The display shows a flat earth map or a rotating 3D globe, with indices displaying for each country. The market numbers are color coded to reflect positive gains or negative losses in real-time. Users can choose which financial market to track in each country and set the display type in the preference-pane application.
The application requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, 1GB RAM, a 1.8GHz processor or faster and an Open GL accelerated graphics card with 64MB VRAM or better. It is free and available for download, requiring only an e-mail address to register.
