If you're the type who likes to keep their head deeply nuzzled in the stock market, then you probably already have a mobile phone full of apps to help you stay connected. If there's one thing I know about Android users, though, it's that we can never have too many apps - especially when they rub the belly of our favorite hobbies, obsessions, or other dependencies just right. So, for all you business, accounting, or other finance-minded folks, CNN Money just landed in the Android Market for phones and Google TV.
The phone app lets you grab all the latest happenings on-the-go, track markets in real-time, monitor a personal watch list, and catch breaking news.

Google's Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt delivered the MacTaggart keynote lecture at the Edinburgh TV Festival last Friday - the first time a non-TV exec has been invited to do so. In his address, Schmidt indicated the UK as being "among the top priorities" in Google TV's European launch next year.
Google TV experienced a rough beginning, facing suspicion - and blocking - from some of the top broadcasting networks in the US. The platform initially faced criticism because some broadcasters felt that Google was "stealing their advertising revenues without contributing to the cost of making programs," Reuters reports.
Schmidt looked to dispel suspicions in his address, pointing out that Google seeks to "support the content industry by providing an open platform for the next generation of television to evolve, the same way Android is an open platform for the next generation of mobile."
There is no word yet on who will manufacture Google TV boxes for the European market, but Reuters speculates that Google's recent purchase of Motorola may or may not point to a future interest in manufacturing the boxes.
