they may mean many different people working at it... but it does sound kinda farfetched.

Most people don't think into it that much, so they might've used it to get the point through.

whats really interesting is the "ticker" ... thats what they spend "thousands of hours per week" on... when in reality, all they have to do is get information from their competitors ( using a query ) and then display the results of the query, and then add their quote, and bingo, done. ( all in fifteen seconds or less - excluding the first initial programming of the query, and the gathering of initial data for the program. )
