    Our first day of work, over a free lunch in the beautiful Advanta campus cafe, we are given the instruction to create a Windows Store app that runs on an embedded device that showcases the capabilities and features of Windows Embedded 8. It was made very clear to us from the start that the sky is the limit and because we were given so few constraints, our Explorer pod really had the chance to reach our creative potential. However, In order to focus our creative flow, we decided to distribute a survey about technology to our friends and family. We targeted our peers with the mentality being that this younger demographic consists of the future home owners and potential users of our device. We wanted to learn what these users expect, need, and desire from technology.

    After analyzing our data, and much brainstorming and collaboration, we gathered the following insights:

    The Intern Perspective: Andrew Buckley

    Posted By J.T. Kimbell
    Program Manager

    It’s time to meet the last of our three Explorers, Andrew Buckley, who will tell us about his experience this summer and how it was similar and differed from Meg and Colleen’s.  Look for a post from all three of them at the end of this week telling you more about their project.

    Background

    Howdy! My name is Andrew Buckley and I was one of 3 explorer interns on the Windows Embedded team this summer. I will be a sophomore this fall at Washington University in St. Louis studying Computer Science and Computer Engineering. I was born and raised in West Palm Beach, FL and I really enjoy soccer, basketball, running, and playing the violin. This fall will be my second semester as a Teaching Assistant for one of the introductory computer science courses.

    These are a few of your favorite things…about Ford SYNC

    Posted By Chris Elliott
    Senior Marketing Communications Manager

    We wanted to know what you thought about Ford SYNC, so we asked.

    And you answered!

    SYNC fans tweeted their favorite features of the system for a chance to win an Xbox, a Microsoft keyboard or an Arc Touch Mouse. The overwhelming favorite was the ability to control SYNC with your voice. Many of you loved the Audible text messaging feature, and told us that going hands- and eyes-free makes you drive safer.
