Spreading Its Wingz -- Remember Wingz, that spreadsheet from 1991 that looked like a real competitor to Excel and eventually became Claris Resolve? Wingz is on its way back to the Macintosh, and Investment Intelligence Systems has made a public beta of Wingz 2.1.1b8 available on their Web site. The beta features a rebuilt interface along with new charting and analytical capabilities, and Investment Intelligence will be showing Wingz and HyperScript Tools (a multi-platform visual programming environment) at Macworld Expo next week.
