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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
