AAPLStockDock is a pretty LAME stock Ticker for one company only: Apple Computer (stock symbol AAPL). It grabs the latest AAPL stock quote and displays it in the dock, and in a floating window if you choose. I really have no idea why I wrote this app in the first place, I'm practically a commie. Why I rewrote it is anyones guess.
Just double click the AAPLStockDock application to start. Then AAPLStockDock will download the latest AAPL stock quote and display it in the dock, and in the floating window, if you have it open. There are quite a few options to choose from, including having AAPLStockDock automatically update at specific time Intervals, having the dock icon display only the price and change, playing sound on price changes, and more.
The apple is color coded to reflect changes to the stock value. When the stock value is going up, the apple is green. When the stock value is going down, the apple is red. If the stock value has not changed, the apple is blue. If the stock value is unknown (first download, etc), the apple will be yellow. When AAPLStockDock is downloading the latest quote, a little clock will appear in the upper left. If an error occurs while downloading, a small error sign will appear in the upper right corner, and the error will be displayed as a tooltip over the window.
