Yahoo Finance gives away stock charts
In a move that promises to earn knowing nods of approval from Web cognoscenti while provoking doubletakes from old media CFOs, reports that Yahoo will syndicate, for free, its stock charts, quotes, and news headlines.

The new Yahoo "widget," unveiled at the Syndicate conference in New York last week, will let "small publishers, bloggers, corporate intranets" and the like add coverage for up to ten companies to their sites, much in the same way that sites can add Google maps or news headlines using RSS feeds.

TechCrunch readers are unanimously excited by the latest development in easy syndication, sometimes known as content "mashups", with one fan already suggesting what should come next: "I think an oil price widget would be very interesting these days."
