just as other Quicken products sold during the previous 10 years, was sold with
a 3-year connected services contract which is coming to an end.
The reason for the
3-year [now 1-year] term is that there are very real ongoing
costs associated with maintaining connectivity, purchasing data for connected
services, operating cloud-based companion apps, security monitoring and
management, and periodically revising the product itself to meet
evolving security and connectivity changes with financial institutions.
Why is it that I am being pushed to upgrade a perfectly fine, working software? And - when I check into it, I find I have to pay yearly for it. That's no different than renting!! I don't rent my home? Why should I rent some software?
