A company in the UK is offering a totally useful service to make it dead easy to get a cab dispatched to you location. BeepTaxi uses satellite tracking and text messaging to dispatch taxi cabs direct to your location. To use it is simple, text a request for a cab to BeepTaxi and their system automatically locates you and sends the closest cab to pick you up. The service costs GBP 1 for the text message which is pretty reasonable to get a cab quickly and with no fuss. I love mobile technology that is simple yet very useful like this.
