USAA has now added a direct iPhone check-deposit feature to it's mobile banking app that allows you to use the iPhone's internal camera to photograph and deposit a check. I know the on-line banking business these days is comparable to Fort Knox, but iPhone security (especially in the case of jailbroken phones), is not exactly considered by some to be the highest achiever in this category. What do you think...would you use your iPhone to remotely deposit checks?

ACU students develop student newspaper app
Settle down, students! Your assignment this semester is to develop an app for the Apple iPad!
That was the task that faced students at Abilene Christian University in Texas earlier this year—before the iPad had even been released! They had the software development kit from Apple and a rough model of the iPad made of wood, approximating the size of the new platform. Their challenge was to build, test, and submit the app so that it would be available in the App Store when the iPad when on sale—ready, set, code!
