Google and Ford are going to build self-driving cars together!
Or so say several unnamed sources.
The news is apparently leaking in advance of the Consumer Electronics Show in January, where the announcement will be made official.
Ford has been building out its own city — MCity — to test self-driving cars, so they are an obvious choice for Google.
It will be interesting to see whether Ford manages to lock up Google’s software — similar to the way AT&T locked up the iPhone for several years after launch — or whether Ford is merely one of many partners with whom Google works.
