IceTV can now pick your favourite show

Intelligent program recommendation system for digital free-to-air TV viewers.

Electronic program guide provider IceTV, which lets users record free-to-air TV through a media centre or Personal Video Recorder (PVR), this week announced the introduction of Australia's first intelligent TV show recommendation system for digital viewers.

According to a statement from the IceTV team, customers can now automatically receive personalized "IceTV Recommendations" on TV shows that may interest them based on their favourite shows, series recordings and similar recording decisions made by other IceTV users.

The technology comes courtesy of a partnership between IceTV and Perth based Recommendation Ventures, and works across either a digital set-top-box based PVR, or Windows and Mac-based media centres.

Suggested TV shows are displayed as an IceTV Recommendation identified by a green star icon within the IceTV electronic program guide.

"The system is so simple. You can either ignore the suggested TV show or conveniently set your device at home to go ahead and record it. It's a case of - we recommend and then let you decide" said Matt Kossatz, IceTV's General Manager.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
