Terror in Taipei: Computex taxi drivers watch live TV, video chat while cruising
It's a Christmas miracle that Joanna and I survived the week in Taipei.

Over here, deep within a WiMAX hotspot, it's not uncommon to see cabbies video chatting and watching live local TV over-the-air while driving, and since you'd never believe me sans pics, I've got a handful of those as proof. Call it culture shock, or call it reckless -- we're calling it "America needs to get with the program and catch up to Asia."%Gallery-94369%
