    of course I'm talking to those of you with jobs.

    I've been using MS Money forever but would like to get into the cloud so I can do shit on multiple devices. Advice needed.

    Meh, My computer is WAY more vulnerable to attack than any of these sites. Why try and infiltrate a secure site when you can slip a keylogger into a users mac-hine? Just ask Mario why I sent him that "keyboard".

    I'm getting used to keeping shit in the cloud. I like it. I don't have to worry about backing it up. It's available from anywhere. Multi-platform accessible. I'm 1/2 way there already with dropbox.

    I've been using some form of quicken/money/whatever for 20 years. I'm a numbers weirdo. Money has been MD forever and mint.com is now owned by intuit. I'd like to give it a go.

    I'm signing up now. Seems you can't transfer money or anything like that using mint.com. It's read only. Good from a security standpoint but not from a usability POV. I just put in one of the accounts I have that I hide from my wife for now.

    It's okay for record-keeping. It'll pull info from checking, credit cards, mortgage, etc, and attempt to classify transactions. It's free cause it targets ads at you like mortgage refinancing and shit.

    so basically it's useless for you. i use amex, get a full report at the end of each year broken down into a dozen or so categories. just need to keep better track of the outgoing cash.
