Audi, Mazda, Jeep, Chrysler and Alfa Romeo rally behind Apple's CarPlay connected platform

The connected car platform wars are heating up. Audi, Mazda, Jeep, Chrysler, Fiat and Alfa Romeo have joined the growing list of Apple CarPlay partners whose upcoming models will offer the ability for users to plug in their iPhones and control various functions and apps right from their car's touchscreen or via Siri.

Many of these manufacturers and sub-brands are also part of Google's Open Automotive Alliance which means the type of smartphone you own may be a big determining factor on the next car you buy. CarPlay has 31 partners so far and companies like Pioneer and Alpine are creating CarPlay head units for those of us with older cars but who want the latest tech. Check out our video demo of Apple's CarPlay on the sexy $300,000 Ferrari FF.

Google feels sting of Apple's Beats acquisition, buys Songza

Not one to sit around and wait what Apple and Beats have in store for streaming music fans, Google's gone off and pulled the trigger on Songza. The music streaming and reccomendation service uses playlists created by 'music experts'  such as DJ's and music critics and tries to suit playlists to user's moods. Songza charges a US $ 0.99 weekly fee for ad free version of its service.

A post on Songza's blog states, "Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re becoming part of Google. We can’t think of a better company to join in our quest to provide the perfect soundtrack for everything you do. No immediate changes to Songza are planned, other than making it faster, smarter, and even more fun to use." It will be interesting to see what plans Google has of monetizing Songza as well as how they will position it against other popular streaming music services and its own Google Play Music service.

Lenovo files patent for a Google Glass-like wearable concept

Lenovo looks like it wants to enter the wearable technology market with a new US patent they applied for. They are trying to patent a headset design that features dual screens, voice recognition, and touch-based navigation. It has a bone-conducting microphone about your nose bridge to make it easier to catch your voice. We’re not sure what Lenovo will do with this patent but it gives us an idea of what we might get in the future.

Microsoft tipped to add folders to Windows Phone

It seems Microsoft is starting to take design cues from iOS and Android with reports that Windows Phone 8.1 will carry the ability to have folders on the Metro interface of the mobile operating system. The Verge reports that a removed support article showed the company’s plans to support app folders natively. It will be similar to how Android and iOS implement it by letting users drag one tile on top of another to create folders that users can rename. We will let you know if we find out anything else about this new report.
