Nokia Maps Purchase Was For Security

The trio of German carmakers that now own Here Maps essentially confirmed Tuesday that they made the $3 billion purchase, in part, because they couldn’t afford to see such a precious asset fall into other hands. What if Uber or Apple bought it and cut off their access? It was a purchase not for profit, but for security. http://recode.net/2015/12/08/german-carmakers-gobbled-up-nokia-maps-so-no-one-else-would-take-it/ #tech
