Aaaaand it's gone

I wrote a post a little while back about how awesome Mint.Com is. Yeah, well today Intuit, the makers of Quicken, bought it. Why? Because it was awesome and a threat to the crappy personal finance software that Intuit has had a monopoly on for years and years. Guess what? When big companies have a business model that works, they don't buy smaller companies and tell them to keep doing everything they were doing before. They try to make them conform to their existing model (See Clear Channel, Microsoft and dozens of others).

So what's the over/under on Mint.Com sucking ass?

The title of this post comes from this awesome South Park clip (Watch and laugh):
