James Taylor covers the taxi fare

Earlier this week, Chris Elliott's excellent traveller-consumer blog featured a story about a woman who was forced to give up her iPod to a New York taxi driver when his credit card machine failed.

There's a happy ending, though: James Taylor has given the victim a brand new iPod, ready-filled with his back catalogue.

It's a lovely gesture. Let's not spoilt the moment by pointing out that, actually, he's not allowed to do that under the RIAA laws and rules, and, technically, he should be taken to court.
