Salman Rushdie took to Twitter today to complain. The world's greatest living novelist (possibly), he's just like us!

The subject of the Booker Prize winner's fury: taxi-on-demand mobile app Uber. Popular with travelers and, well, anyone looking for an easy way to find a ride and not have to worry about paying for it on the spot, Rushdie didn't care for its rush-hour pricing scheme this morning in New York City. Magical realism, ok for a novel, not ok for taxi pricing.
