Pumped to see what Marissa does with Yahoo.
Marissa Mayer, one of the top executives at Google, will be the next C.E.O. of Yahoo, making her one of the most prominent women in Silicon Valley and corporate America.

To me New Jersey friends, did you know that free checking at Wells Fargo is gone....again.

"Free checking is getting harder and harder to get," said Alex Matjanec, co-founder of MyBankTracker.com, a consumer banking website. "It's still available, but you have to go to the community banks."
Wells Fargo started charging its former Wachovia customers in New Jersey a $7 checking account fee this month

Thanks to CNN Money for including MyBankTracker and me in their monthly issue.
Interest rates on savings accounts are lousy and you can boost your yield only so much. But you can get make up some of that with these banking strategies.

Love this piece on the shift of prepaid into the classic checking account industry.

Had the opportunity to speak with CBS News about prepaid cards. Looks like the story made it onto local stations.

Had the chance to share my POV on the continued battles over interchange fees. What's interesting is as traditional platforms continue to battle it out, startups like Dwolla are eliminating the fees all together...well capping them at $0.25
