New York's Taxi & Limousine Commission gave a preview of the next generation of taxi cabs they will have a touch-screen that allows you to watch TV, pay by credit card, track your movement on a map and retrieve your things that you forgot in the backseat.

Implications - People in populated cities such as Toronto in Canada and New York in the USA use cabs on a daily basis to get from place to place. Since many people like to have the ability to do things simultaneously, the featured taxi cab is a brilliant idea that many consumers will enjoy. Companies that make cab rides more enjoyable for consumers are definitely going to see a rise in profit.
