Wells Fargo & Co. May 2 will announce what it said will be the nation's largest network of Web-enabled ATMs. Customers won't be able to access the Net; rather, the San Francisco bank will use the Internet to pull in interactive services--bank offers, personalized greetings--as well as headlines from MSNBC.com and full-motion video. ATMs will run movie trailers and commercials when consumers aren't using the machines; DreamWorks Pictures will run the first ad, for "Gladiator." The bank over time will convert its 6,300 ATMs, starting this year with more than 800 in Arizona and California.
