Don’t rely on a single service

Do not rely on a software company, any software company, to provide you with a servoce for any length of time – especially one that is free. Investiscope wasnt free, but it should have been if it is suddenly shutting down. Obvisouly, the business mode didnt work. I encourage everyone to control their own data, have back ups of everything, and dont get too reliant on any one program. Otherwise, you will be left holding the bag when developer x shuts down y (insert Google Reader, numerous Facebook intitative, Investoscope, Posterous, etc . . .the list goes on and on and on.
