My unofficial, uninformed take on ING is judging by the name "Electric Orange", it may be a paperless checking account that relies on the use of debit cards and internet services. We'll see what happens...

Now, for bigger news -- I hate to burst your bubble, SeattleNative, but those forums you speak of only mention a small handful of financial institutions (whichever ones happen to be giving-away the store and/or at the beck and call of that board's followers) -- hardly comprehensive stuff in my book.

Also, in case anyone is wondering -- the pure-play Online Banking business isn't what it was in 1999-2000. When the tech bubble burst, many of the goodies that we were once getting went away, too...

With that having been said, sure, there is no longer, a lot of chatter about the business, as a whole (particularly, since the nation's leading B&M's have made their online offerings more attractive than they were in 1999-2000).

So, if Online Banking is indeed "dead", then, what's a person to talk about?

Stay tuned ;-)
