Mobile banking: have we got it right?

I am struck by the sheer number of announcements over the past 12 months related to mobile payments and mobile banking.  Nothing wrong with this, but times change fast and I’m already wondering how long mobile will be in vogue. For example, just as the iPod is dead, so is …

How my bank tried to get me back from PayPal

Coincidentally, at the same time as a bank rejected my PayPal transactions, another one sent me the solution to my online identity issues.  It arrived in a very nice box, and had a note that said: "We’re looking after you and protecting you." Now one of my bank accounts (I …

How my bank forced me to switch to PayPal

One thing banks are concerned about with PayPal is if users place more funds on account, as this means you could operate a revolving debit account within PayPal with no funds ever flowing through the banking system.  For example, I could place £1,000 on debit with PayPal and then use …

Global banking is a fallacy

So the afternoon progresses and I’m now bouncing around like a ping-pong ball between SEPA, corporates, Asia, FpML, Fedwire … you name it.  It must be to do with this idea that yours truly can assimilate the global banking trends and regurgitate them at will.  Can I really do this?  …

More Spice Girl moments

I’m sure you can see there’s a theme to this week’s blogging kicked off by Posh and Becks in my first posting.  Yes, it’s got to be a Spice Girls week.  Not sure how I’ll get through Ginger, Sporty, Baby and Scarey … although there’s a few folks around here …
