The city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission is proceeding with one of the most significant changes in taxicab service in years. By January, all of the city’s 13,000 yellow cabs will be required to have a new set of technological features including credit card readers and passenger information monitors, which will allow riders to track their journey and also watch news and advertisements.

Oh thank you mighty TLC for allowing us the oportunity to watch ads. Thank you.
Now if they would just do something about that sitar music that's usually blaring out of the radio, not to mention the sickly air freshener or cologne smell that often permeates a cab.
Oh, and working AC would be nice too.
