Forget trying to flag a cab and have a private driver arriving within minutes from your phone

Find yourself in any major city and it's surprisingly hard to flag down a taxi when you need one. Get stuck in an unknown area and it's really hard to make a call, tell a taxi company where you're located, then wait a while for them to arrive. When Uber was launched, the rules changed.

Uber is a private driver-on-demand serivce, is remarkably simple to use and is much cheaper than a regulated taxi. Once you've downloaded the app, sign up with a credit card (and if you can find a referral from a friend you get a $20 Uber credit towards your first ride) and you're ready to find your ride.

Open the app and the app homepage shows you real-time live preview of nearby cars on a small map. It's worth noting that these are all private drivers, with their own car, although in our experience we've only ever experienced a professional service.

There's an option to choose a bigger vhicle if you need one. Six seater? No problem, just select the uberXL option. In addition to the standard uberX option there is also EXEC and LUX which offers higher end vehicles at a higher fare.

Once you have chosen your destination and car type it is plain sailing. You can estimate your fare, which will be largely dependent on traffic and your choice of vehicle. From here all you need to do is press 'Pick Up' and a Uber driver will be assigned to you once they accept the ride. You'll see there location on the map as they move towards the pickup point and an estimation of the pick up time. You'll be notified through the app and by text when your driver accepts your request and is near your location. Sit back and watch your journey on a map with an estimated arrival time.

Once your ride is complete, you'll be billed direct to your credit card on file, with no requirement to hand the driver cash for your journey, then Uber will send you an invoice for the ride, ideal for a business person and expenses.

What's new in version 3.351.10003?

- Updates to 'share your trip' experience
- Improvements to the look and feel of selection of different ride options

Verdict:

While the ride experience will vary dependent on the Uber driver, and Uber has had it's fair share of publicity (good and bad), the app itself is incredibly simple, easy to set up and usually saves a serious amount on your ride vs traditional taxis.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
