Quicken Online goes offline for Mint.com

About a year after Intuit's acquisition of Mint.com, it is closing the doors on its competing product. The technological migration has been tough for the company, it acknowledges.

Quicken Online has officially made its way into the history books, welcoming Mint.com to replace it, as of the weekend.

But unlike other migrations from one software product to another, many of which do a lot of the heavy lifting for the user, this switch from Quicken Online to Mint is no day at the beach. Because the platforms for the two products are so vastly different--including the way transactions are handled--the migration has been less than ideal, the company acknowledged.

Specifically, Quicken Online users weren't converted to Mint.com customers automatically. Users were required to establish new accounts. And transactions from the tracked accounts in Quicken Online didn't automatically convert into Mint, though the company did provide a way to offload the transactions into a standalone file for saving.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
