Microsoft Sync with Ads?


I’m sure you have seen the commercials and know what Microsoft Sync is. The best commercial I have seen is where if you buy a new Ford with Microsoft Sync in it, Ford will give you an iPhone. Isn’t there something wrong with it? Microsoft and iPhone don’t go together. Back on track now. Microsoft has plans with it’s new sync to make the service even better. But they aren’t wanting to charge you for these new services, they are wanting to support the new services with target ads. Normally I would say this is a horrible idea to deliver ads in the car but every time I turn on the radio there are ads. This might not be any worse for driving than normal radio ads. It will be interesting to see what they come up with for a final product.

“We know where you are and we know where you’re headed,” he says, seemingly unaware of the Orwellian implications. “We could target that advertising directly to your car.”
