Mint

Proceeding Heffernan's column last week about Mint.com, a number of commenters voiced security concerns about the site. The CEO came back with a pretty interesting response about the level of security, which includes biometric access, video surveillance, "man-trap" doors, encryption, and other things straight outta Ocean's Seventeen. But here's something that's never exactly been addressed by Mint: read the fine print and you'll see that you're essentially handing over right of attorney to Mint. (They need to do this to get this level of access.) It's kinda creepy, but I still use it.

Some ridiculously long title tags there. Not at all relevant, I know, but it's the first thing that I noticed.

I don't like mint.com at all, there are better sites on the internet that are similiar, I'm not gonna post any links, do some research.
