Favorite Online Spreadsheet Service
Wayne A. Thorp, CFA, editor of Computerized Investing, reveals his favorite online spreadsheet service, Zoho. While not as robust as software-based spreadsheet programs such as those from OpenOffice and Microsoft, you can access online spreadsheets from any computer and, if you choose, share and collaborate with others. For more on online spreadsheet programs, see the First Quarter 2011 Computerized Investing feature, available to CI subscribers at www.computerizedinvesting.com.
