V14:14 (575-577): Product Review: WaveWi$e Market spreadsheet, version 6l36
Developing software these days is mostly a marketing issue, what with the price of expert programming and therefore the dominance of those who can afford it. Therefore, it's refreshing to run across finely crafted products like WAVE WI$E that inexplicably cost less than the grind-it-out mass-marketed powerhouses.
In WAVE WI$E, developer Jerome Technology, rather like a custom British motorcar manufacturer, puts out a precision product that gets right to the true analyst's desire to see and manipulate the actual numbers rather than credulously gawk at a colored line on a computer's screen. Though its name doesn't suggest it, WAVE WI$E is a spreadsheet-like product that's been geared to the trader's needs. Now, in addition, if there's something missing, WAVE WI$E supports DDE linkage to Excel (or Lotus 1-2-3), where the panoply of today's spreadsheets' power is available.
