Hi,
Will the new Electronic Computer Investing honor an existing published edition life membership?


Robert Randall from TN posted 8 months ago:

Can I assume this will not affect the "dead tree" version of AAII Journal?


Wayne Thorp from IL posted 8 months ago:

@Ed Collins, Computerized Investing is not going away, but we are changing the delivery medium. Starting in March you will receive an e-Newsletter via email instead of receiving a printed edition in the mail. There will no longer be a printed edition of Computerized Investing.


Wayne Thorp from IL posted 8 months ago:

@Robert Randall, CI is a separate service from basic AAII membership and this change will not impact the delivery medium of the AAII Journal.

It was my understanding with a Life Membership that I could select among a number of products to be included...I chose Computerized Investing and have been very pleased for a number of years. I do hope that this will continue with the new format and electronic delivery

I am looking forward to this new way to read the CI and it is great to have an issue a month instead of only 4 a year. Thanks for all your hard work....

Will CI ever be compatible with a Mac?

I can understand that you went to this method of distribution to save money. However did you consider that there is much less chance of it being read this way?
For example I estimate I will get around to reading about 15% of the issues if I find them if you e-mail me a notice. I now get almost 200 e-mails a day and can only get around to reading abut 10%. A paper copy of a document, on the other hand, sits on my desk and stares at me until I pick it up and read it.


Gene Powers from TX posted 8 months ago:

I agree with you Charles Briner, and I have been told there is no provision for saving the e-version of CI.


Jean Henrich from IL posted 8 months ago:

Gene - You'll see a print button with each article that gives you several options for saving/printing the online CI articles: You can print to Google Cloud, save and print as a PDF, save and print as a word doc, email it, save to Dropbox, save to Google Drive, save to Box, send to Kindle. You will also be able to remove elements you don't want to print or save - such as images or blocks of text. You can change the type size, and you can add comments to the printed page. So it will be much more versatile for reading at your convenience than in the past.

@Mike

CI is not a software program, so it is not OS-specific. You can use it on a Mac, Windows, or any platform with an Internet connection.


Donald from CA posted 8 months ago:

I could NOT be more disappointed with this going to an all electronic version. In the past I could mark up the pages, tear things out and do all the things you can do with paper. This is about money, not about servicing the members. And their point about the bi-monthly being too much data, well that's just a lie.

The least that could be done, would be to deliver it in email in a PDF format so that we still have the whole newsletter.

I deeply regret having done a lifetime subscription to AAII and selecting a CI subscription.

Donald
why not just print it out if you like it on paper?


Wayne Thorp from IL posted 8 months ago:

We offer better printing options than we did previously. Click the print icon to access the new Clean Print service. Also, as a Life Member, you are receiving Computerized Investing as a FREE bonus to Life Membership.
