Interesting data tables, but why do they base them on past market values, while there are free real-time quotes out there? I understand they have to stick to some values they can quote in their article, but the charts should be activated with current data. That’s another example of print content that fails to take advantage of the web.
01/12/01 update: Red Herring does it.
Let people add the stocks they’re researching into an online spreadsheet, and you’ve transformed your one-time content into a lasting tool. Microsoft gets it with MoneyCentral Investor (though the fact that as I’m writing this, one of their headings leads to a 404 doesn’t speak well for them.) AOL’s Fortune (if the merger with TW goes through) still has much to learn to get the web.
As a side note, Fortune is a typical representative of the design school that spreads content into many pages to maximize ads. Their single column width holds about 7 to 8 words and looks real silly in 1600*1200. I usually surf with several windows open but still, web designers should start taking higher resolutions into account.
