    On BNN last Friday, the day of BlackBerry's earning call, it was discussed that although not out of the woods yet, the future of BlackBerry is looking brighter. They mentioned as one of the positive notes that Ford has selected QNX over Microsoft going forward. Now I know there are those that say it's not a done deal, but I believe it is. They sited Fords reasons for the switch also......this is very good news. (Yes we are not talking, just underlying background operations, but up through the infotainment)

    I hope this is true. I would like to see a QNX infotainment system in a car I can actually afford.

    I think that BNN and you spread misinformation around:
    Ford hasn't decided on QNX for future Sync sytems just yet | CrackBerry.com

    Ford's switch to QNX is NOT official and is speculation only.

    or at the very least a list of cars running QNX would be nice.

    Unless it is an official statement by Ford, they are still in the selection phase.

    I comment on a report that was produced last Friday, and you accuse me of spreading rumors based on a Crackberry article dated February 27th, 2014. What kind of logic is that? I was simply commenting on what was on BNN. I would say BNN's reporting to be far more accurate and in depth than Crackberry's.

    So where is a quote from either bbry or ford? We would have seen a press release from one or both.

    This would not surprise me. Even Apple's new CarPlay uses QNX underneath for its kernel. Having an intimate knowledge with the embedded MS OSes, I can tell you that the embedded, high reliability space is foreign to the culture of MS. At its core, MS is a technology marketing company, which is very different from the embedded world. Companies who bet on MS often found themselves in trouble, with the root cause of the problems being the low interpersonal and ethical intelligence at the top of MS.

    I have only commented on what BNN Stated during their commentary of BlackBerry last Friday. They had a discussion regarding the Quarter Results. Where they obtained their information I am not sure, but they did cite the reasons for Ford selecting QNX over Microsoft and they feel this is another bright spot for BlackBerry turning things around. Don't know what else to say, other than they seem to know perhaps some inside facts. Obviously they portray that Ford has commented.

    The OP didn't say he had a quote. He simply reported on something from BNN. Yes it was reported before so if you have a bone to pick with someone, contact BNN and talk them.

    I'd say cautious optimism. Will have to wait for official word.

    It would be a good move for Ford
    Whenever MS moved beyond PC, it went wrong.

    Thanks OP. That's encouraging. All the negative Nancy's, shut it! All the op did was share a BNN report from last Friday. Get over it.
