The Web's Everywhere ... Even in NYC Taxis

Living in a wired world is great, but are we sometimes too wired for our own good?

New York City dwellers and tourists alike can now surf the Web on a Palm VII in certain taxi cabs outfitted for the Web, thanks to a deal between Yahoo! and Medallion Financial Group.

Even though there are only 10 cabs with the Palm devices, this is a pilot project set to stay in effect until March 2001, at which time an evaluation will be done to determine if more cabs should be wired.

The program is part of the Yahoo Everywhere strategy, and is a continuation of pilot program in San Francisco last year.
