Why do they still do open outcry?

Why do they still do open outcry? It would seem that there is a more efficient way to accomplish complex trade transactions than shouting and hand signals.

Where can I find the historical PE ratio for a given stock market sector or industry?

Where can I find the historical PE ratio for a given stock market sector or industry? When you get a stock quote from Yahoo Finance, the historical prices page tells you what the stock sold for on a given day. The competitors page shows the average PE ratio for that stock's industry. I am looking for something kind of in-between — namely, to find out what the PE was for a given industry/sector was on a given date. Where can I find this information online?

Is there a website that has graphs of stock price in non-quoted currency

Is there a finance website that can plot historical and current graphs of a stock price in a currency other than that of its local exchange, e.g. the stock price of IBM in USD multiplied by the (moving, not current!) EUR:USD exchange rate? If this is easy to do on Google or Yahoo Finance then I'm obviously missing something!

Numbers in stock trading symbols?

Why can't you put numbers in a stock trading symbol? (Or can you?) For example, 3M is MMM, which works out, but it would have been easier for them to simply have 3M. (I tried to Google for the answer, but there are so many irrelevant hits.)
