  • Blog Post: Day 2 – American Journey 2.0 Road Trip to Maker Faire

    Wheh!  What a long day today.  Started off great in the morning at Northwestern University showing off the Ford Fiestas and the Fiestaware platform, built on Windows 7 and Microsoft Robotics Studio , to engineering students and anyone else passing by.  We gave a lot of demos, handed out...

  • Blog Post: Toyota's Car OS vs. Ford's Sync (Microsoft Windows Automotive)

    Ok -- let me come clean right up front: the headline here is slightly misleading because Toyota's Car OS and Ford's Sync are not really directly comparable.
