Oracle is planning to add Nokia's mapping tech to its applications

Nokia is making deals with all sorts of companies for the use of its mapping technology Navteq, and Oracle is the latest to jump on the bandwagon. 
 
Not many details are known about the Nokia/Oracle partnership other than the fact that it was made official at the Oracle OpenWorld conference. Oracle is planning to add Nokia's mapping tech to its applications. 
 
Aside from Oracle, Nokia has struck mapping deals with auto companies like BMW, Volkswagen, Korean Hyundai and Mercedes. These automakers plan to use Navteq in some of their vehicles. Navteq will also be used in Garmin's transit services and a new Urban Guidance feature in its Navigon app. 
 
In addition, Nokia recently partnered with Amazon to provide mapping services for the e-tailer's latest Kindle line, Kindle Fire HD. This line consists of a refreshed 7-inch model for $199, an 8.9-inch model for $299 and a 4G LTE model for $499. Amazon is also offering a 250 MB of bandwidth per month, 20 GB of cloud storage and $10 in Appstore credit for $50 per year. 
 
A huge advocate of Nokia's mapping technology will be Microsoft's Windows 8, which will be released on October 26. This makes sense, since Nokia is the main hardware maker for Windows Phones, but it's hoping to use Navteq and the new OS to compete successfully with Apple iPhone/iOS and Google's Android-powered phones.

I don't know. Do you guys have a mutually exclusive pact where you share all aspects of your life together? Or does one of you just pay the other one money for the goods?

I think in the end, I think we all just pay our wives for the "goods" in one way or another.
