Is it just me or is the voice of Google's Alexa the same as the Uconnect voice? Granted it's computer generated, but they appear to have the same dialect and inflection tones. Any linguistic programmers out there?

Google I/O had some interesting news about a new OS they are developing. Fuchia will be a *Nix flavour and designed to be a ground up RTOS, sort of like QNX is.

Licensing will likely follow the Android model. The reason manufacturers are moving off QNX is the costs. Blackberry is starting to price itself out of life there.

For a company that has been coasting on fumes, I say ride the wave until it's gone, BlackBerry!

Vehicle of my dreams? Hmm ... always stay skeptical, but enjoy what you've got while you've got it.

Of all the Cherokee model years, the '14's would be the least likely to get an Android OS backport. I seem to recall the hardware changed between '14 and '15, despite the radio being the same model and order code.
