Even FinancialEngines.com and ESPlanner, two of the more data-intensive calcultors
that I've ever seen, are less expensive. And you only have to pay for ESP once.
It bothers me to see a website showing stock photos of so many satisfied old pharts happily frolicking amongst nature's glories with big smiles plastered on their faces. Right next to the stock photos of other geezers peering at their computer monitors with happy grins. Where's the stock photo of the guy throwing both hands over his head in a touchdown signal, the woman curled up barefoot in a reading nook with a laptop, a cup of herbal tea, and a contented smile? Or the couple reclining in the hammock sharing a laptop touchpad as they steer their way together through their virtual retirement portfolio?
When you enter the website's mailing address into Mapquest's aerial map the neighborhood looks mighty rural... as in someone programming from their home office, not a team of financial & software wizards working from RW2 Galactic HQ. But maybe it's still a good product.
Can you link the article you read?
