Ford ditches Microsoft for QNX in latest in-vehicle tech platform

Ford today took the wraps off its next generation in-car technology package. Called Sync 3, it’s expectedly faster, sleeker and much improved from the old one. It’s also more intuitive, easier on the eyes and better integrates smartphone apps. But the biggest change is under the hood: Sync 3 is powered by QNX instead of Microsoft Auto.

The car has become yet another platform battleground.
