The Financial Blogger Conference, also dubbed #FinCon13, is where money and media meet, so it's only appropriate that while some Bankrate folks attend this event, we carve out time for an on-air hangout to talk about banking trends.

Big thanks to Frank Trotter, president of EverBank Direct, and Claes Bell, editor of, for sitting down with me to tackle topics near and dear to the online banking customer, including:

• The perks of online bank products are better rates. How does the bank swing it?
• Are consumers comfortable with never being face to face with a banker?
• Fast-forward 50 years: Will bank branches still be around?

What do you think? What's next for online banking?
