Priority Banking

If you’ve had the opportunity to go to a bank in the flesh as opposed to doing it via telephone banking or cyber-forex, you’d probably have had the chance to listen to a bank teller telling you about their latest financial products that come with some free gift that start from as low as $9 a day so invest now.

That alone is enough to encourage you to do all your banking online, which is what they’re trying to make you do of course. Saves them hellalottamoney maintaining physical branches.

But there’s a Russian bank called Expobank which is doing things the other way round. It recently released a calendar, as most people sometimes do before the start of a year, featuring some of their female banking staff in various degrees of undress.

I’m not asking anyone to imagine our local tellers doing the same thing, or that you should mentally undress your teller the next time you do some face-to-face banking, but the queues at the branches should leave you with ample time to ponder the different meanings of ‘deposits’, ‘withdrawals’ and ‘corporate transactions’.

The models include the bank’s chief economist for super-rich VIP clients, Anna Pogodina (Miss March), and her boss, Julia Kovyneva (Miss April), who is sprawled across a bed.

  3. Just asked Scoble at Podcast Hotel if he had heard rumor about iPhone possibly being used as a wireless video monitor. The buzz I heard was around the providian.com possibility for the iphone as a monitor where a director could watch the filming on his wireless monitor (iPhone) while running lines with the actors.

  4. Your site is fine. I just want to comment on the design. Its too loud. Its doing way too much and it takes away from what youve got to say wch I suppose is really important. I dont know if you didnt suppose that your words could hold everyones attention, but you were wrong. You definitely have something to say and you say it with style, my man!
