    Welcome to the Taxi club.
    If you still have not seen it, try going through a slide show of your pictures. I see it quite often in that app.

    Once "Off Topic" was taken from the post count, we should have modified the contest guess when you would finally get a ride in the cab.

    Now that you have joined the secret order, we can reveal that everytime it appears is just as exciting (except when you think you have typed a whole line, only to see that the typing stopped to let the nuisance cross the street AGAIN!!! )

    You may need more than an afternoon. I can go weeks without seeing it.

    I have never seen the alleged taxi. I feel deprived.

    Quell your deprivation...

    ...from Mobilityware.com:

    "There is now a better way to see what the Taxi looks like. Taxi! Taxi! is a Palm application that accurately reproduces the action of the Taxi driving across the screen. Taxi! Taxi! uses the actual image of the Taxi that is hidden in your handhelds Read Only Memory (ROM) and animates the Taxi across the screen much like the actual Taxi Easter Egg does. All you have to do is HotSync the TaxiTaxi.prc file to your handheld and run it. In a couple of seconds after Taxi! Taxi! is run you will see a Taxi drive across your screen."

    The Taxi Easter Egg was put into the first version of Palm OS by it's original programmer. The original marketing name of the first Palm handheld was "Taxi"; however it was discovered at the last minute that another technology company already had the term "Taxi" trademarked. The name of the first Palm was changed from "Taxi" to "Pilot" another name that would prove problematic later on. The Taxi Easter Egg has remained in every version of Palm OS through Palm OS 5.

    Again, yesterday! Wow, twice in one month! I feel special, however, far less special than Insertion's 3 times a week!

    Cheers, Perry.

    Casey,
    Don't do it. It would be like winning all the money in the world, without having to work for it. It just wouldn't bring you real happiness.
    Wait it out, our taxi virgin friend.

    OK, this is a joke, right?

    If not, does it work on a Treo650? I go to prefs, and draw a freakin' little circle, and nothing happens.... isn't an egg supposed to appear when you do this to indicate "eggs on" or whatever?

    Have I just been sent snipe hunting?
  12. #52  
    OK - gotta be in the "power" portion to get the egg to show...

    Besides the taxi, what else do I need to look for?

    Once the egg shows, just sit back and wait. (You might be waiting a while)

    There is an app called Taxi that actually enables the easter egg taxie to appear:

    However I couldn't get it to work on my treo... Anyone else try?

    Worked for me.

    mistercoffe1, I had already been deflowered through the natural process of the taxi showing up on its own.

    I liked the old fashioned taxi better than the new one on the T650. Anyone know how to get the old one back?

    Perry, I must say your situation/wait was hilarious!

    I'm just going thru this thread, and I'm just taken back to when I was going thru the exact thing with my 600. I was waiting forever, it seemed like - and yes, it took about 3 months.

    I swear, people think you're nuts when you finally see it though, and they're right - it makes you blurt out "Taxi! Oooh, oooh, look... here it is... hurry" - trying to prove to the person next to you that you have a 'reason' for the sudden excitement....

    (I'm starting to take offense nowadays when people say "Get a life." Hey, this is my life - I enjoy watching taxis go across my screen unexpetedly )
