The following video is from Friday's installment of the Motley Fool's Weekly Tech Review, in which host Chris Hill, and analysts Eric Bleeker and Jason Moser take a look at the biggest stories driving the tech sector this week.

While much ado has been made about the battle for your living room among the tech giants, your car is a battleground often overlooked by investors, and the competition is heating up. In this segment, Eric discusses how including cars in Apple's iOS or Google's Android ecosystems could keep the technology from becoming outmoded longer than if automakers make their own proprietary in-car systems. He also discusses which automakers are already on board with the idea, and why some holdouts such as Ford could be making a big mistake.
