While Apple has officially announced an announcement, we don't know what it is. So we speculate anyway. Sue us. Will you pay $2 for a new character that indicates sarcasm? Most of us won't, either. We also discuss the meaning of privacy in search engines and Quicken hides it's online service behind Mint, which oddly makes Natali hungry.

I just listened to Friday’s episode 1145, where you were (somewhat justifiably) slamming Real Networks. You do realize that Rhapsody is Real, right? Don’t get me wrong–I’m no fan of Real, nor certainly of RealPlayer, but I think it’s fair to conclude that Real Networks is not quite dead yet.

Hi BOL team.


I don’t know if this is on your radar, however, I’m sure you’re aware of Intuit’s acquisition of Mint.com. Well, as of Saturday morning, it appears that they flipped the switch, and QuickenOnline is no longer available (easily) from the homepage, you’re instead directed to the Mint.com site.


Unfortunately, with the the change, they did not follow through on their word to introduce functionality from QuickenOnline to Mint. Specifically, you can no longer enter payments or have any kind of recurring bills. For myself and I’m sure countless others, this is a HUGE problem, as we use this functionality to mke sure we pay our bills on time.


If this is the direction that Intuit/Mint is taking, they’re (IMHO) shotting themselves in the foot, by removing the whole POINT of finance software.


Thanks for listening to me vent.


– Mike
