Yes, more London-centric tech reporting. This time about Uber, the smartphone taxi service, which is set to launch in our nation's great capital.

Uber is a taxi service which allows you to order a cab via iPhone or Android by selecting your current location. Any drivers in your area who also have Uber can accept your request, after which you add your destination. The cost of your journey will then be charged to your Uber account. Pretty nifty, no?

If the service were to be rolled out over the country, rather than just in London we would be extremely happy, as it looks to us to be a smooth, easy to use system which makes getting hold of a cab extremely easy. Plus you can show off you swanky smartphone to your mates.
