Access Real-Time Stock Quotes for Free via AOL IM

As instant messenging continues to become a primary communication tool for many people, it's important to learn about and even "vision" about info tools that can be used with instant messenging services.

Yesterday, we posted about receiving real-time weather info and forecasts (USA only) using one of several IM tools and technology from WeatherBug.

Today, a brief intro to TCKRBuddy for AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). This service provides (free) real-time stock quotes for several exchanges.

To use the service, create an AIM buddy named TCKRBuddy. Then enter a ticker symbol and click send Need help? Enter "help" and click send. For the full menu of services, enter "menu" and click send.

If you register (free), you can save and then access "buckets" of symbols.
