MacATM parodies Mac software industry

MacATM parody software

Comedy site The Daily Grind has released MacATM 1.0, an app meant to parody the sometimes ridiculous world of Mac business and development software. "Mac OS X users have previously labored under the platform's lack of a comprehensive ATM simulation solution," Grind president Joe Stella is quoted as saying. Once installed on a Mac, says VP Damian Prendergast, users can "enjoy the excitement and immersion of an ATM on the move or at home. You need never again ram-raid a shopping center or take a tow-truck to the bank."

The app is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.3 or higher, and a free 1.4MB download. Prendergast denies allegations that the software could erase a hard drive or start a power supply fire.

    When will there be a UK localised version of this critical application (we don't have the checking/savings accounts type setup)? and why oh why wasn't this in Leopard in the first place?

    or, more importantly, why isn't this a web-based app??? I can't use it from an iPhone? Then who cares!

    It already is UK localised the word "cheque" isn't used in the US, rather "check" - see screenshot above.
