Many people believe services such as Xero that rely on an on-demand delivery method for accounting are destined to failure – most naysayers give security of service and security of information as the reasons for their concerns. This news just in should provide some fuel for the SaaS pundits out there – seems that a recent push update for Intuit’s Quickbooks has destroyed data on some Mac users machines.

I’m sure if he were to comment on these things (and he’s not in the habit of doing so) Rod would say that this provides yet another justification of the SaaS centrally updated model
