New York City taxis are getting an upgrade. Soon all 13,000 yellow cabs in NYC will be equipped with PIM's (Personal Information Monitors). The machines will show local information, entertainment, the taxi's current location and advertising, it will also accept credit cards. For some reason, the machine runs an astounding $7,400 and there are rumors of a possible strike. The Taxi & Limousine Commission says the system is better for everyone because it will allow for cashless transactions. Expect to see these systems in yellow cabs throughout the city by the end of the summer.
