Banking Sucks

Banks are stuck in the 1950's.

That's it.  Period.  They are going to die.

Over the last few years I've done battle with the banking industry.  Trying in vain to send money to my son - same day.  The only way is to pay for a wire transfer.  That takes about 30 physically at the bank and costs a minimum of $20.

Then I try to make a purchase online with my debit card and have it declined.  Try to use my debit card with Google play and have it declined.  WTF!  I understand that hackers are a PITA but seriously, Google play?  And calling every time I leave town... ridiculous!

How about this US banking industry - come into the fucking 1990s and implement a technology that cant be stolen at the local McDonalds.  Time to do away with mag stripe cards and embrace pin and chip - move to NFC payments for crissake!

If the tech is so compromised that I can't use it to make a purchase or send money IT'S FUCKING USELESS!

Change or die!

Pepsi Should Step Up

Pepsi should step up and release the same ad.  Beautiful Coke. Beautiful.  The only thing that would have made this better was a segment or two from native Americans.  Maybe a forthcoming ad?
