I thought about writing a full article on this, but really, all I can come up with is #lolthefuturelooksbright. The short version is that Bloomberg reported that Ford is planning to dump Microsoft's Windows for its in-car "Sync" platform, and instead embrace the future with Blackberry's QNX platform. The reasons apparently boil down to the fact that it's cheaper and better than Windows, but in either case it's not saying all that much. Perhaps it will be the shot in the arm that Blackberry needs to survive. Then again, maybe Ford will be find itself needing to shop around again in a few years. Either way, it's further anti-validation for Microsoft. Speaking of which, this could shed some light on why Ford CEO Alan Mulally wasn't interested in the Microsoft gig eventually given to new CEO Satya Nadella. [Image courtesy of Shutterstock]
