    As a finance student, this is a bit of a dream come true, at least in theory. Tracking down comprehensive financial information is ordinarily a nightmare. I won't hold my breath until they release the pricing information though. If it works as well as they suggest it might, they'll be able to charge a pretty hefty rate.

    These bums are asking money to view freely available data. Good luck with that, LOL!

    Actually, they are asking money for retrieving "freely available" data that can be a pain in the *** to track down manually. It's like trimming hedges: free if you do it yourself, but plenty of people pay to have someone else do the work if the price is right. It's no different here.
