I was taking my uncle’s cab last month when I notice this TV screen.

Comfort taxis now have information services

(Comfort taxis now have information services.)

They’ll be some ads and it runs on and on and on.

The touch screen springs to life once the meter starts running. Located at the back of the front passenger seat, the sounds would annoy you the entire trip.

“Can turn this thing off?” I asked.

The taxi driver cannot turn it off for you. Can only guide you to turn it on. It seem to be by (bad) design to run voices to your head while you get back from a tiring day.

Interestingly, you can query movie listings and stuff. When you’re really bored you can take a look at bits of news or stare at repeating advertisements.


To turn it off… Okay I forget, but happy fiddling.
