Microsoft announced plans to have their software (embedded) in your electric vehicle. It does seem to make sense, having the media streams controlled by the experience from Microsoft. Music, maps, traffic information and entertainment is what they have been doing for a long time now. They also have experience with plug and play, which is very much applicable to an an EV ofcourse. Just be sure to avoid car-crashes doubly so, having to reset your car on the highway after a "B.S.O.D."is the last thing you will want to do.
All in all it makes perfectly sense for Microsoft ofcourse to enter this market, especially since a lot of car manufacturers have displayed a lot of connecticity options for iPhones and other smart phones, like BMW for example with it's Mini scooter.
