Microsoft's TV recommendation gadget


I know what I like when it comes to the telly – and I only need a copy of TV Quick (other listings magazines are available) to sort out a night’s viewing. Microsoft obviously don’t agree with this simplistic approach after offering an early view of what is provisionally called the TV Recommendation Gadget.

It apparently ‘talks to your Media Center PC, takes what you watch, shows you what you’ve watched, lets you rate them, and recommends other shows for you to watch/record.’ Yes, not a million miles from that rather annoying rating system that Amazon persists with on their site.

Expect it on a Media Center PC in the coming months.
