Here’s some fun news: as of Wed. ATMs are 40 years old in Canada! Thanks to Canadian Financial Stuff
for drawing attention to the fact. In 2005, Cdns. paid $420 million all told in ATM fees. RBC reported net profits of $4.6 Billion the following year. TD made $4.4 billion. Banks in the UK don’t charge people for ATM usage. Wait! Wait! This is supposed to fun friday! Ok how ’bout this: ATMs will be obsolete by 2008, when Canadians will have access to iphones, which of course dispense cash among other features like playing music, giving us directions, can calling people.
