First of all, thanks for all the great feedback. I see that a lot of folks are pulling it now. I'm working on some stats. It'll be interesting to see which stocks bloggers tend to watch, which aggregators they use, and so on.

I've seen a few folks make use of them in the weblogs already. postneo Matt picked up an Apple release, for example.

This is very cool. It's not often that I get such personal and quick feedback about something I worked on at Yahoo. Most of our stuff is so big that the feedback always gets filtered thru customer care and producers and so on. The upshot is that we engineers and hackers almost never see/hear/read it.

Keep it coming. :-)

A lot of you have requested features. The most popular request is to get the latest price of the stock as the first entry in the feed--linked to a quote page for more information. I like that idea a lot. I hope to implement that (and a few other things) in the next week.

The feedback is great. I can't stress that enough. We really don't get this for most of our "product launches".

If you mailed me personally or posted feedback and I haven't replied, don't worry. I've read it. I will reply. Thanks.

Syndicating the stock price is a great idea.
Only catch I see is that many will only want the stock price, or will want the stock price more often than the news.
So you'll have many folks grabbing the entire rss file just for that stock price, putting a bigger strain on your servers.
How about syndicating the stock price only, seperately?
