Channels DVR review, for Apple TV

In some ways, Channels DVR is tough to recommend. The subscription cost is greater than other over-the-air DVR options, the hardware requirements are more stringent, and even some basic features–like conflict resolution–are absent. Yet one feature manages to compensate for those weaknesses: With the press of a button, you can skip through entire commercial breaks in any recorded program. Only TiVo’s Roamio OTA offers similar ad-skipping powers, and Channels is a much slicker solution that runs on Apple TV and…

It offers a fraction of the audio quality, too, of course, but that doesn’t make us love it any less. Available now for £49 direct…

Regardless of What You May Think, Canada Has Always Been a Tech Hub

Recently, there’s been a lot of media buzz regarding the notion that Canada has secretly become the next new “tech hub.” The buzz, of course, is due — in large part — to the anxiety many are feeling concerning President Donald Tump’s executive order on H-1B visas for foreign workers. Related: 5 Reasons Startups Should Consider Expanding to Canada Vanity Fair, in September, for instance, wrote that, “Highly skilled tech employees are absconding to Canada.” Start-ups in the Canadian tech hub of Toronto say that…

Hotels are employing fewer concierges

IF BUSINESS travellers need to reserve a table at a restaurant, they may use OpenTable, a website. If they wish to find a nearby museum, a Google search will probably be their first port of call. And if they want transport into town, they can easily hail an Uber. Given that so many services are just one swipe away, is there a need for a hotel concierge anymore? Increasingly hoteliers think that there is not. The share of American hotels…

Airbus and Bombardier tie-up could signal shift in aviation empires

The Airbus A318 is an odd little plane: short, stubby and unpopular. While many aircraft are designed with a possible “stretch” (extending the fuselage to increase the number of seats), the smallest member of the Airbus family is a shrink-of-a-shrink.
