I hate having to get a taxi cab. Really hate it. So this week I gave Uber a try and I'm pretty darn impressed with it. It really makes the old call a cab system seem archaic. You open the app and you can see all the Uber drivers that are in your area on a map. You add a destination and get an estimate for the trip. The you request a driver and when one responds you can accept. Then you can actually watch the car drive to you on the map. The best part is when you get to your destination the app transfers the money to the driver. There is no exchange of any real money or even a reason to talk to the driver at all. You don't even need to figure out a tip. I love it.
