    Where exactly do you tap? Which screen? Do you have to do it in a certain app?

    I have no idea. I tried it just to see if it would work, it didn't. I'm sorta glad it didn't because I thought maybe the damned taxi would keep showing up randomly and I would not be able to stop it!

    I thought the taxi was to his house after I spend a few hours waiting for it to show up on the Centro.

    You guys have no imagination or fun in you.

    For many years the taxi has been a source of fun and amusement to anyone who finds the egg. Easter eggs have been created by program & DVD developers since there were programs...and DVDs. These are things that are hidden in programs and DVDs that a tricky person puts in, and it has become sort of a puzzle for millions to figure out where they are. The taxi, very rarely is seen. When it does cross the screen, it will not distract you, but should amuse you. Google "easter eggs", and read about the inedible kind.

    I know what easter eggs are. Let's assume for a minute that the taxi does not amuse me. If it does appear, is there a way of shutting down this particular easter egg?

    the taxi will brighten your day when it randomly zips across your screen. you will find yourself saying, "hey, taxi!" with a smile.

    to turn off the easter egg, I think you just click on the egg and it will disappear.

    I'd rather see a naked Shania Twain zipping across my screen....any chance of that happening?

    I'm with chimmer on this one. I was amused one time back in '04 when that Taxi went sputtering across my 650 screen. Then I flattened it's tires and pulled it's spark plug wires.

    Yup, put that thing out of commission.

    Party poopers! I had the egg and now I can't get it back? Any idea? I got it about 5 times yesterday.

    Download your Taxi prc anytime you need to be amused....

    The excitement has gone away for me...

    I have been a Palm owner since the original 1000. Outside of the Taxi program that treotraveler mentions, I have never had a random taxi appear.

    So would I, but no, there is no chance.

    To get rid of the egg, draw a circle around it in the opposite direction of the way you drew it to get it there in the first place.

    I always turn the egg on and let the taxi zip across the screen. I have done that for the last 4 years on all of my devices.

    The taxi is more "cool" than "amusing." Since I am a developer seeing the taxing reminds me of engineers' fun side.

    It only passes by once or twice a month, so it isn't disruptive.

    My other favorite is Sheldon, the dancing Palm tree (actually, Palm's original mascot and former logo!) in the Giraffe game.
    Did you know:

    webOS ran on a Treo 800 during initial development.

    I have had that Taxi on all my treos and it would pop up out of the blue and randomly . I would get a kick out of it sometimes.
