If you ever find yourself caught in a pinch and you need a ride, Uber, a new private driver car booking service, is within your smartphone’s reach. The service markets itself as ‘everyone’s private driver,’ and true enough, any user can make a  request via mobile phone to be picked up at their exact location (thanks to GPS). Once the ride has been completed, users get automatically charged to their credit cards on file, tips included. Initially available only in San Francisco, Uber has since spread its wings and ventured out not only in US cities, but also in Europe.
