Wesabe Shutting Down July 31st

I was sad to hear that Wesabe, a version of Mint.com that's not US only is going to be discontinuing its Accounts tab as of July 31st. The blog post has details on how to get your data off, and what will happen to it after they shut down (it's all being sold to a nice Nigerian man*). They also have some discussion about alternatives. Sadly nothing as cool as Mint.com up here in .ca....

Short story about why sounds like it's plain old money (ironically enough) and not enough resources to give the user experience that people deserve and need when dealing with money over the internet. Very sad to hear, hopefully something new will come up that's high quality like Wesabe.

* Just kidding, it's all getting deleted.
