Anyone know a place where I can download accurate current stock price data of a certain company on the NYSE/NASDAQ? (without downloading a whole page with other junk like ads and html code)

I tried yahoo, but it's not reliable...

Not sure if this is exactly the right section, but...um....  :-?

Edit: nvm.... I guess yahoo is good enough.

If you have access to a Mac there are a number of dashboard widgets that do just that.

Linux probably has something, somewhere... depending on the distro... Linux has almost everything....

1. A linux widget is freeware.
2. 95% of the time, a freeware program has a home page and/or source code, which you can examine to find the source of the information.
