Automakers Enable New Use Cases With Embedded Software

Reporting its earnings this week, BlackBerry said a large and growing proportion of its QNX business — which includes embedded software for automotive applications — comes from uses such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), digital cockpits and autonomous drive. BlackBerry marked 17 new auto design wins during the most recent quarter, including ADAS, digital cockpit and instrument cluster applications created for automakers and Tier 1 suppliers. The company’s design activities include the professional services used by the customers to design BlackBerry’s QNX software into vehicles and other Internet of Things (IoT) end points.

OpenSea Teams With MoonPay for NFT Credit Card Payments

NFT marketplace OpenSea is working with MoonPay to allow direct credit card payments for people who want to buy NFTs, a move that paves the way for investors that don’t own cryptocurrency. The partnership means people wishing to buy, sell, trade and collect NFTs can pay directly with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Apple Pay, Google Pay and other methods, without first having to convert to specific cryptocurrencies. Although debit cards are accepted as payment, users will still need to connect to a digital wallet.
