Hi, Robert.

I don't know who Eddie Wu is, except that the article describes him as the
"Product Manager" for Mint. Aaron Patzer is the guy who started Mint.com
and then sold it to Intuit. Patzer made some very rash comments a year or
so ago. I don't know if he is still employed by Mint - or by Intuit.
Anyone interested can check it out by starting in www.mint.com/company.

I'm not interested in Mint, for the reasons discussed in the USA Today
article you posted: "Part of the draw of Quicken is the security it offers:
All your data are stored on your computer, not on a remote server."

But the new version of Quicken (Q2012) generally arrives in the third
quarter of the year before (2011) - so I'm expecting it Real Soon Now. I
bought Quicken Deluxe 2011 at Best Buy for $39.95 on October 20, 2010. In
most years I buy it in August or September.

Many users wait for the bargain bundle with TurboTax, but I usually do not.
To me, $40 a year is a very reasonable price for all that Quicken does for
me; it's kind of like an annual subscription cost that, among other things,
helps to support the company and make sure the program will be available
next year and the year(s) after. If Quicken were not available, I don't
know how I would maintain my financial records! How would you do it?

Generally speaking, arrives in the 4Q of the 'previous' year; so target
for Q 2012 is November 2011. Here's an interesting article about some
of the rumored features:

I wonder who Eddie Wu is? A replacement for the former Mint CEO who dissed
all
the Quicken users last year?

Looks like Patzer is history: http://about.intuit.com/about_intuit/executives/

Hi, Robert.

I just found this article from Inc. magazine last November:
http://www.inc.com/articles/2010/11/aaron-patzer-ditches-his-desk-at-intuit.html

But I don't know his current status - or whereabouts.

Very interesting. I think the telling quote was:

"Large companies like Intuit can have trouble innovating. But Aaron is the kind
of person who speaks his mind, and has rubbed some people the wrong way," a Palo
Alto entrepreneur who knows Patzer but who wished to remain anonymous, says.
"There's a culture clash."


It's more than a culture clash. Based on the public comments he made, the guy
had absolutely zero idea on what it takes to run an established company. Setting
aside whether or not the correct strategy is to abandon the PC market, you don't
piss off the people who are still funding all that development you need
