Found this one on Slashdot:
http://www.monopolylive.co.uk/

Apparently they've outfitted several London cabs with GPS and they're the playing pieces in a game of live monopoly. :blink:

Looks like if you win, the Motley Fool will pay your mortgage/rent for a year. Sounds like a risky way to cover your bills :huh:

Hmmm...

What if we hack into the cabbies navigation systems? B) I wouldn't mind living for free for the rest of my life ;)

Actually, that probabely wouldn't work. It's said that cab drivers in London have to undergo a very serious training, including learning the A-Z of central London by heart.

London cabbies should be given honorary degrees in Geography!
