New York taxiApparently NYC cab drivers aren't quite up for having their every movement tracked by GPS, even if the technology would help them navigate the city and all that jazz. They're rallying on monday against those plans we spied last year by the city Taxi and Limousine Commission to mandate "upgrades" for the cabs that would cost drivers (or cab companies) $3000-$5000 and collect data on their movement through the city. If the plan goes forward the drivers want (yet another) a rate increase — joy of joys. We're all about GPS for getting around, but we're sure glad nobody is checking up on our what we're up to or how fast we're getting there… of course that's what they want us to believe.
