Many rushed to cooperative banks which are open Saturdays in Cyprus after learning that the terms of a bailout deal that the cash-strapped country hammered out with international lenders includes a one-time levy on bank deposits. The move, decided in an extraordinary meeting of the finance ministers of the 17-nation eurozone in the early hours Saturday, is a major departure from established policies. Analysts have warned that making depositors take a hit threatens to undermine investors' confidence in other weaker eurozone economies and might possibly lead to bank runs.

Automated teller machines are having a moment right now. Specifically, ATMs in the tiny island nation of Cyprus, which is at the center of a massive bailout mess that has shaken the global markets.

Before this week, it's possible that you'd never seen a photograph of a Cypriot ATM. But now, owing to the fact that nobody really knows anything about Cyprus aside from the fact that it's in danger of having a bank run, they're everywhere you look. Newspapers, websites, TV networks — no news editor can dodge the allure of these red-hot Cypriot money machines.

The ATM pictured above is one of the hottest numbers making the rounds. Here are six others:
