After the Apple community rattled their cages, Wells Fargo changed their position and kept their Quicken for Mac support. Well, I am a Bank of America customer and a proud Quicken 2002 for MacOS X user. Unfortunately, here’s the letter I received today:

Think Different About Desktop Computers

I think Apple needs to really Think Different about Pro desktop computers. In fact they should just abandon the desktop and get down on the floor. I have never been a fan of the current tower case, introduced with the Blue & White G3. It was bigger and bulkier than it had to be and offered less room for internal expansion than the Power Macintosh 9600. I think the G5 processor should come in a box that is meant to sit on the floor with no removable drive bays. It would house the power supply, a motherboard with an AGP and four PCI slots, airport and as many as two 3.5 (?) hard drives. All removable drives would sit on a FireWire/USB docking station on the desktop.
