Since one of my items is lengthy, I'll forget my personal comments. It was an interesting experience too, but should be in next month's column.
Aladdin has released some updates and a special offer. They offer user groups a discount as usual. You can check it out on my Web site from my Announcements page [http://www.dealsguy.com] or register at [http://www.aladdinsys.com/support/usergroups/index.html]
Help for the Investor (It's About Time!)
My thanks to Norm Black who leads an investment SIG in the Alamo PC User Group for connecting me with "High Growth Stock" (HGS). If you are an investor (many UGs have an investment SIG), this could be just the ticket for analyzing your investments. Norm says a member made them aware of HGS and now both Alamo Investment SIGs, as well as some of the members, are using it. Since I've not yet tried their product, HGS folks wrote the description that follows:
"High Growth Stock investing solutions (HGS) introduces you to an exciting set of investment products and services that keep you abreast of the pulse of the market, meeting the needs of the individual and institutional investor alike. We are dedicated to offering systems, products and services that, together, will provide an end-to-end seamless process for successful investing in a volatile and often tricky market. The heart and engine of our offering is the HGS investor software developed and launched years ago. It is continually enhanced and upgraded several times each year with greater capability, functionality and features that allow our clients to be smarter and more profitable investors, as well as the capability to do whatever style of investing you aspire.
"Those that master HGS investing solutions usually produce well above market average returns. Typically, HGS clients enjoy high profits quickly, 25% in 8 weeks and potentially to 100% in 16 to 24 weeks (remember this is an HGS writeup). Quickly identify the 'cream of the crop' when selecting stocks. Identify where the money is flowing, narrow down the search from a warehouse of over 8,700 stocks in 200 industry groups, in 12 sectors and 3 markets, to select the best candidates to buy and sell today.
"High Growth Stock investing solutions can accommodate any investing style, from value investing, which places emphasis on the fundamental characteristics of a company, to momentum investing which strictly concentrates on technical analysis, to growth investing. However, with HGS investing solutions we are proponents of growth investing, which uses the best of both fundamental and technical analysis from value and momentum investing, respectively.
"In summary, the HGS investing solutions provides whatever style of investing you aspire to and enables you to get the job done efficiently and quickly. In addition, there are several training CD's that take you through the basics from intermediate levels to advanced concepts of how to use the tools. The training CD's are a series of movies and PowerPoint slides that make it easy to follow in several case studies. In addition, there are free weekly market reports at our website providing up to date reviews of the market. We also feature a free Learning Center of case studies that assist you in the principles of HGS investing.
"There is a free HGS Forum at our website, hosted by Yahoo, that you can participate in or just read the wonderful exchange of ideas and investment suggestions from our clients. In addition, we provide a monthly newsletter (invariably 20 pages in length) that you can subscribe to and download at your convenience. The HGS seminar is 3 days in length and gives you an in-depth understanding of the HGS strategy, process and software tools. For more details on High Growth stock investing solutions go to [http://www.highgrowthstock.com].
"Two special offers and Promotions are offered to members of the PC User Group readership of Bob Click's DealsGuy monthly column.
1. A FREE, no strings attached, risk free, sixty (60) days 'introductory subscription' to High Growth Stock (HGS) investing solutions (A $125.88 value). This offer is designed for the 'professional' investor, not the beginning investor or user. What you receive for this no cost offer is:
A. A CD containing all the information and data that our regular clients would pay $755 for.
B. The free no risk 60-day 'introductory subscription' to HGS investing solutions 'begins the day you install the CD' with the HGS investor software and stock market data, and ends 60 calendar days later.
C. A fully functional copy of the HGS investor software, designed, developed and marketed by Industry Monitors.
D. The HGS historical database of stock/market price and fundamentals from our partner, Quotes Plus, Inc.

To order your FREE, no strings attached, risk free, sixty-day introductory subscription to High Growth Stock investing solutions, go to: [http://www.highgrowthstock.com/Order/Trial.asp?from=Click]
If, after the FREE 60-day trial period, you are convinced that this investing solution really works, the High Growth Stock folks make this special temporary offer. The annual subscription cost for these services is $755.26. The HGS folks have agreed to a first year subscription period of 14 months instead of the usual 12 months, an additional value to you of another $125.88. To convert to annual after your trial offer, order at [http://www.highgrowthstock.com].
When you look at the entire deal I have arranged, You are getting 16 months total of service for $755.26. The first two months are totally free with no out of pocket money. They say that without this deal, it would cost you $755.26 + $251.76 for the extra 4 months. It's a $1,007.02 package for $755.26, a 25% saving with no financial commitment for the first 60 days. If after 60 days you're not convinced it's for you, just walk away and it didn't cost you anything but some time to evaluate this fine product. Just using the FREE trial is a great deal for the serious investor.
How About Secure E-mail For A change (PCs only)
I received this offer from Eric Leve at Centuriansoft. I realize that some folks don't care if somebody might read their e-mail, but here is software to encrypt it at a good price, bundled with another great product. I'll post the information received from Centuriansoft on my Web site's announcement page [http://www.dealsguy.com] where you can see their argument for encryption, full descriptions of the products in this deal, and their offer. Please read it all carefully.
Briefly, SoftClan "e-cryptor" allows the user to create and send self-decrypting e-mails that do not require the recipient to have any additional software to decode the message. Once received, the recipient needs only to expand or execute the attachment, click on the resulting envelope icon, and finally, input the password to access the enclosed and formerly encoded information.
Also, for a limited time Centuriansoft will include a free copy of "Steganos 3 Security Suite" with your order. Steganos 3 Security Suite is a complete security solution for your PC. Its features include seven great products and I liked the looks of them all. MSRP for SoftClan "e-cryptor is $59.95, but DealsGuy readers can get the entire package for just $39.96, shipping included. $7.00 shipping for Canadian customers. Call 1-202-293- 1634, or e-mail [firstname.lastname@example.org] and mention promotion code 777 to order. Visit their Web site for information on their entire line of products.
