Blair Stover, a technical guru who enjoys studying the latest technology trends, discusses the new taxi apps and how they are affecting the transportation industry. According to Ms. Stover, not everyone is thrilled with the new taxi apps, particularly taxi companies.
While technology is always improving, some advances are not welcomed by everyone. Cab drivers, for example, are not happy about some new apps that allow customers to order and pay for cabs right on their cell phones.
London cabbies, in particular, are upset with Uber, a London cab app that discourages tips and sends the driver closest to the fare to the pickup site rather than assigning customers on a rotating basis as a dispatcher tends to do. Although customers love the convenience of Uber, cabbies have expressed frustration with the new app and have protested the fact that the new cabs utilizing this service are being allowed the same privileges as traditional cabs without being forced to meet the same standards.
According to Blair Stover, who can be seen on http://www.blairstovertech.com/ , the failure to accept new technology is not limited to the cab industry. As she points out in her blog, located at http://www.blairstovertech.com/apps-for-taxis-not-everyones-favorite/ , there are many reasons why industries may not embrace certain programs, particularly if the people working in that field believe that the technology may negatively affect their ability to make a living or may force them to change the way they do business.
