If you’re running a Windows 10 Insider machine, particularly one that supports pen input, then you’ve likely been able to give the Sticky Notes app a try or two. The app is a small one that basically lets you take quick notes–think of it as Post-It notes for your Windows 10 PC. Today, we learn that the Sticky Notes app on Windows Insider Fast Ring machines is getting an update enabling stock ticker and flight info from Bing.
