Tomorrow, the International Consumer Electronics Show kicks off. But today, the swarms of company reps and entrepreneurs have arrived in Las Vegas. And one topic that’s already big news is Google’s Open Automotive Alliance. There was news ahead of this week’s show about the tech giant partnering with Audi to put its Android operating system in cars. But it turns out the partnership is much bigger than that, including Honda and even General Motors. Tim Stevens, editor-at-large at CNET, tells Marketplace Tech more about Google’s plans for your car.
