    Guess it's the ole "can't beat 'em? Buy 'em!" adage.

    Guess the good times' over for Mint.com.

    Intuit sucks.

    good thing apple never employs that strategy :eek:, with a lot of banks trying to provide this in house, i still have a not so good feeling using these guys. They say its read only, however your account information is stored on their servers which is why its auto updating. I personally would like to do my finances "offline" and have a local program and only connect to my bank when needed

    Yup, I feel as though Intuit treats OS X as the step child. If you have time for it then maybe, I mean if there is nothing to do then ok ... maybe work on an update.

    Seems cheap, but then again this is a free service that Mint.com claims will remain free after the acquisition.

    Whilist I never used Mint to its fullest potential, I can see how handy it is to people. Intuit will probably ruin it for all.

    I have heard of it, but never used it. Something about putting my financial info online outside my bank/credit card company. :eek:
