A killer app?

Mint sounds like something I've been waiting for. Permalink to this paragraph

Like something everyone will want.  Permalink to this paragraph

Now, should I trust them with my data?? Permalink to this paragraph

BTW, it's refreshing that someone, whoever they are, saw their way through the maze of BS products that Silicon Valley keeps coming up with and made something obvious and widely useful. That's the kind of stuff I like to see.  Permalink to this paragraph

PS: I did a search and found out that Mint is one of the 40 products announced at TC40. It should win the $50K award, if the execution is anything more than passing. Best idea at the show, by far. Permalink to this paragraph

PPS: Fred Wilson writes to say Mint is not a new idea, that Wesabe, a company he has invested in, has been offering a similar product for over a year. He also sent a pointer to their Security and Privacy FAQ, a very inspiring document.  Permalink to this paragraph
