Information Week reports that Diebold has acquired a number of patents that promise to change the way you use the ATM:
Diebold said that the technologies will allow mobile phone owners to find ATMs, order cash withdrawals remotely, generate electronic checks, transmit wireless payments and conduct other transactions more securely and conveniently than they do now.
Sounds exciting. Unfortunately we won't be seeing these applications for a while:
The company said it is in talks with technology partners that could bring Diebold's tested applications to market in three to five years.
