Australia's 'Big Four' banks have decided to remove the cash withdrawal fee for using their ATMs. This means you will no longer be charged $2 for using a CBA, Westpac, ANZ or NAB ATM with your card, regardless of who you bank with. Or to put it another way, the banks are rorting us slightly less than before.

Banks such as Westpac, NAB, ANZ, and Commonwealth have employed deliberate delaying tactics to arbitrarily make the process of cancelling a credit card more difficult. Australian banks are yet to meaningfully respond to an industry-led report that found there is a serious need for reform in how credit cards are handled, and as we move closer to a cashless society, it's becoming more and more important.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
This week, Australia's four major banks were forced to explain why they are raking in billions of dollars in profit at the expense of consumers to a parliament hearing. They were also grilled about a string of banking scandals in recent years. Here's a summary of what the Commonwealth Bank, ANZ Bank, NAB and Westpac had to say for themselves.
Android Pay's debut in Australia has been in the works for months and if rumours are to be believed, the service could begin trials as early as this week. Somewhat surprisingly however, just one of the big four will be involved in the launch.
Today, ANZ switched on Apple Pay for its five million Australian customers, allowing contactless payments to be made with iPhone and Apple Watch devices. Here's what you need to know.
Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it could also land you your dream job. In this week’s KIQ, we look at how one employer uses this question to appraise potential job candidates.
So much for the theory that everyone in IT is being asked to do even more with less money. In ANZ's half-yearly results, technology expenses went up $95 million compared to the same time a year ago.
Want a shiny new Android phone? To celebrate the release of the Android version of the ANZ goMoney app, we have a Samsung Galaxy S III (valued at $899) to give away to one lucky Lifehacker reader.
Android: The last time we discussed mobile banking apps, lots of Lifehacker readers praised ANZ's goMoney app. That app is now available on Android as well as iOS, providing a convenient way to access your accounts on the go.
One of our more frequent complaints here at Lifehacker is that Web-based applications for money management like Mint and Wesabe have poor (or non-existent) integration with Australian banks and other financial institutions. In recent weeks, several readers have emailed us to sing the praises of the ANZ Money Manager site, which offers similar features -- automatically importing financial data from your online banking accounts, tracking spending, and helping plan budgets -- and works with a wide range of Australian financial institutions.
