Hailing Cabs With Your Mobile Phone
Mobile phone users in the UK will soon be able to hail cabs by mobile phone. There have been similar services announced in the past, but this one actually seems to make use of some location based technologies. When you call, the system claims it can pinpoint the nearest available cab – and connect you directly to the driver. You then explain to the driver where you are, so they can pick you up. The company that runs the service also happens to be owned by the company that makes London’s taxis.
