    Tis the season to be shopping…for a phone that works with your car!

    Posted By Chris Elliott

    Christmas is fast approaching, and if you’re anything like me, you have some shopping to do.

    Some of you may be considering buying a new mobile phone as a gift for yourself or someone on your list.  There are so many cool new options out there to choose from (including some great Windows Phone 8 devices—hint, hint) but for those with a car that has an in-car connectivity system, like Ford SYNC, one important consideration will be whether the new device is compatible with your car.

    PowerToys Make Life Easier: CBS Package Inspector

    Posted By J.T. Kimbell
    Program Manager

    A few years ago on our old blog, I posted to let everyone know about a PowerToy we released called CBS Package Inspector. With our new blog up and a new audience, I wanted to spend a bit of time highlighting that tool again.

    CBS Package Inspector was created by Anup Vasudeva Rao, a software development engineer, and released shortly after the release of Windows Embedded Standard 7 with the purpose of allowing Windows Embedded developers to better understand the contents of the packages they are installing on the system. How does it do this? By providing the ability to crack open and peek inside .cab or .msu files, showing their contents.

    “Great!” you may say, but what exactly does that mean? Good question, and luckily for you, I’m prepared to divulge some of those details.

    Using Push Button Reset to Enable Your Embedded Scenarios

    Posted By J.T. Kimbell
    Program Manager

    When I first read the blog from Desmond Lee and Steven Sinofsky in early January on the new Push Button Reset features coming in Windows 8, I was pretty excited, and I immediately started trying to think of how Refresh and Reset could be useful.

    So, what’s Push Button Reset? I like to describe it as the awesome next generation of the old “restore your specialized device” functionality previously found in Windows. Instead of just being able to restore your specialized device back to some pre-defined settings, you can actually now completely roll back to a previous state and even save your data easily, if you wish to. It’s also not like your traditional backup and restore experience: All this can be done in less than 20 minutes.

    So, with the help of a great trio of engineers from our Windows Embedded team in Beijing (Shuxiang Wan, Dev, Nan Li, PM, and Song Tian,Test) I was able to pull together this blog article to really show the value of this new Windows 8 feature for Windows Embedded customers.

    Europe says “Ciao” to the new Ford Fiesta with SYNC

    Posted By Chris Elliott
    Senior Marketing Communications Manager

    The year is 1976.

    ABBA, Queen and Rod Stewart rule the airwaves, while “Rocky”and “A Star is Born” dominate at the box office.

    It was in 1976 that Ford first launched the Ford Fiesta—a small but mighty hatchback which has gone on to become one of Ford’s global best-sellers, with over 15 million sold.

    Thirty-six years later, Ford is introducing the newest Fiesta to Europe by hosting an event in Rome at the famed Cinecittà Studios lot, where drivers put Fiestas to the test. Driving through the location where movies like “Roman Holiday” and “Ben-Hur” were filmed adds something to the Fiesta test-drive experience, to say the least!

    Clearly, there’ve been a lot of changes to the Fiesta over the years—most notably, its technology. In the 1976 Fiesta, you would have been lucky to get an FM radio. Today it comes with one of the most comprehensive suites of in-car connectivity features available in a small car: Ford SYNC. In fact, 2012 marks the introduction of SYNC to the Fiesta in Europe, a major milestone in Ford’s approach to democratizing technology, making advanced features more broadly available to customers.
