iPhone OS 3.0: Stocks Widget Gets Updated

Stocks, the widget-like application that's been unchanged since the original iPhone 1.0 release is finally getting some refresh love from Apple in iPhone 3.0. While the top part, or actual stock info, remains the same, the old version's graph along the bottom has been replaced with news results. Still want the graph? No problem, turn to landscape view and you get it bright and bigger than before. Also new, if you tap on the graph line, you get the stock price that day and if you tap at a second location as well, you get the delta (change in value) between those two points.

A small update, long in coming, but likely appreciated by many who are more than ever checking it daily, if not hourly, if not by the minute...
