Location based services are becoming a reality — using Zingo in London, you can have a taxi speed to wherever you are, based on your cell phone sending them your exact location.
Yes, we know about the eternal promises of location based services (LBS), like lunch specials popping up on your cell phone the moment you pass by a Japanse restaurant around noon. Or taxis speeding to wherever you are, based on your cell phone sending them the exact location. Oh, wait — the latter is for real now! London-based Zingo Taxi is the world’s first (well, maybe second) mobile phone taxi-hailing service, and enables passengers to hail a nearby licensed London taxi that is available for hire by calling Zingo from their mobile phone.
