Intuit: What's Mine is Theirs

Not a geospatial post, but… I fired up my home accounting software today, to get caught up in preparation for tax time, and look what greeted me:

Intuit is going to shut down all the internet services associated with my copy of Quicken for Mac. But good news! I can upgrade to Quicken 2007 for only $50 and keep my services! Yay!

Holy corporate screwings, Batman! Nice way to drive the upgrade process, Intuit, but a little tough on the customer loyalty — I feel like a beast being driven over Head Smashed In Buffalo Jump. Gotta make those quarterly numbers.

Time to research alternatives — deeds like this should not go unpunished.
