OK, very cool for Chase customers, not quite as cool for everyone else, but the latest update to Chase's app lets you take deposit checks by snapping pictures of them with your iPhone.
Chase isn't the first bank to do this sort of thing, but they're definitely the biggest, and when gigantic companies like JPMorgan Chase do some futuristic stuff like adding cameraphone check depositing, it's nice to take a second out of your day to appreciate the effort. Free. Also available for the iPad
