Ford announces a new upgrade to its Sync technology, including improved voice commands for radio. The updated Sync will debut in the 2014 Ford Fiesta, and allow greater user control over voice-activated radio features. Tech Crunch notes that drivers can simply say the name of an artist, song, album, genre or radio station aloud to hear it. The system no longer differentiates between terrestrial and satellite radio either, as Sync now knows which stations are in which category.

The National Association of Broadcasters announce that News Corporation President and COO Chase Carey will participate in a question-and-answer session with NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith during the 2013 NAB Show opening event on Monday, April 8 in Las Vegas.
