From the Bad Timing for a Press Release Department · Dec 19, 11:23 AM

Recently, many users of Intuit’s Quickbooks software for Mac were bitten by a software bug that resulted in the complete loss of data in some users’ desktop folders. There have been varying reports on the severity of the bug, but it is another in a long line of security and functional concerns in various Intuit products for the Mac. This wouldn’t really bother us that much, but Bill Campbell, Chairman and former CEO of Intuit, still sits on Apple’s Board of Directors.

Yesterday, Intuit announced they would be releasing an iPhone friendly version of Quicken to the masses as part of its Quicken Online product. Quicken Online will be web-only, so there should be an almost zero chance that they can do damage to your iPhone, but the good folks at Intuit tend to surprise us with their feats of ignorance, so won’t be taking any bets, even with those odds.
