Episode Tease

Shortly before CES this year, Ford announced that they would be abandoning Microsoft's technology in favor of BlackBerry's QNX technology in their next generation of Ford SYNC. At CES, Todd got to see the QNX-powered Ford SYNC 3 in action.

This generation, the company is focusing on safety with its infotainment system. As part of the redesign process, Ford invited customers to their offices to experience the operating system and give feedback. Large hit boxes makes interacting with the system easier, keeping your eyes on the road while driving, while voice commands allow you to not have to physically interact at all.
