According to sources familiar with the matter, the car company is dissatisfied with Microsoft’s voice-activated sync system, and plans to drop it in favor of the cheaper QNX system made by Blackberry. The move also signals a new relationship between Ford and Microsoft. During Microsoft’s CEO hunt, Ford CEO Alan Mullally was considered a strong contender to lead Microsoft, but was ultimately passed over in favor of company veteran Satya Nadella earlier this month, leading many to anticipate tension between the two companies.
