Bank of America ATMs: Technologically Impressive, Slow as Molasses.

BOA ATMs are the second best thing since sliced bread. They can count bills and read checks (and print check images out on thermal paper!), but for god’s sake, why are they so slow? It’s as if every time you press a button it fires up a dial up modem in back and executes a MySQL query over 9600 baud.

I appreciate the tech in the machine, but the implementation of the communication architecture must be horrific…
