Dutch banks join hands to develop standard for e-payments
Recently the Dutch banks announced (see in Dutch: Planet Multimedia) that a new internet payment standard will be developed. Current e-payment initiatives by ING (Tootz, Way2Pay) and ABN AMRO (E-wallet) will be stopped. Rabo continues its Minitix however and aims for the mobile market with that application.

This blog: plots for horror stories?
Although I personally can imagine quite some horrorful payment stories, I can't imagine the world to be so dull and unexciting as to need to revert to retail payments for inspiration. So whoever was looking for those plots: good luck with your quest !

President Bush's picture on a fake $200 bill
I wonder if, in case I were a US states official, I would be able to make Bush sign a Presidential Decree that -to celebrate his election victory- he's going to be on the next bank note. My guess is that Bush checks the details of such a decision as good as the intelligence reports he gets every now and then. Which would be interesting, because these details state that according to US law, only dead man may become immortal by appearing on US bank notes.
