File this one in the Why Should I Believe Intuit Again Department? From Intuit’s Scott Gulbransen in Quicken for Mac Coming in February 2010:
We know you’ve heard this before. In early 2008, we told you we’d release Quicken Financial Life for Mac later that year. 2008 came and went and we did not. At Macworld 2009, we told you it would be later this year.
So, you lied to us but under the guise of “Feedback from Mac customers led us to rethink our approach to developing Quicken for Mac” you decided to start over? How bad was the version you were working on?
We understand our loyal Mac customers are disappointed that the product won’t be in stores until after the first of the year. For that, we apologize. We think taking our time to get it right will be well worth it and will make Mac customers even more excited when they use the new Quicken for Mac early next year.
My money is likely to be tied up elsewhere. Thank you, but no thank you.
