Sky updates electronic program guide, adds recommendations, smart season recording

British satellite television provider Sky has started to roll out software updates to its Sky+ HD set-top boxes, updating the electronic program guide. A new "recommendation engine" will make suggestions of TV shows to watch based on previously downloaded or recorded content, reports The Next Web, with other changes including a "Smart Series Link" automatically recording new seasons of TV shows, DVD cover art, and the combination of HD and SD viewing options in On Demand.




Google makes Chrome downloadable in Cuba

Google Chrome has finally been made available to download in Cuba. CNET reports that the search company had issues with US sanctions against the country, limiting what it could do, with Google explaining in a Google+ post "As these trade restrictions evolve we've been working to figure out how to make more tools available in sanctioned countries." Though Chrome has been downloadable in the country in the past, this is the first time the browser can be downloaded from Google's regional site, and follows a visit by chairman Eric Schmidt to the country in June.
