You can write your own getQuote "method" and use the Defaults package to change from src="yahoo" to "yahoopaid" or whatever you decide to call it. I don't have a paid subscription so I can't really help with writing it.

It doesn't seem easy to me to hack getQuote.yahoo to get real-time. It seems it just loads a csv file. Does anyone know if there is maybe a similar page for non-delayed real-time or it all involves reading and writing to sockets? I don't care about a couple of seconds of latency, i just don't want to have 15 minutes latency and using getQuote would be uber nice.
