Smart On Money seems to be keeping up and trying to inform people of new developments in the banking industry. For those interested it may be a good blog to subscribe to.
My views have become quite solidified and my approach simple: Unfortunately it is necessary to have at least one account to cash checks and facilitate transfers of funds for monthly expenses, beyond that banking is no longer an industry to be trusted. Used car salesmen now get to take a place of integrity above the major banks. Small local banks still are a good service but becoming harder to find. AIG also has had high ratings from a number of financial bloggers.
