Mobile Banking Updates - Mar 7

There's No Money in Mobile Banking
"First, read my thumbs. I don't text; I don't own an i-anything; nothing's attached to my ears; both hands are on the steering wheel; my cell phone still works for away-from-office calls; my laptop does everything I need to do; I don't need to be a mobile banking user; and most of all, I am one very happy camper. But I certainly don't represent the mainstream of bank user population."
