Ice TV has long had an iPhone app, but the subscription electronic program guide is now showing a bit of Android love. The company has issued a beta version of its Android app, letting you access upcoming show lists and schedule recordings direct from your phone.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

Electronic program guide Ice TV has published a listing of the most popular programs recorded by users of its service in 2008. What's interesting about the list is how little resemblance it bears to overall TV ratings: for instance, Australia's top-rated new local drama Packed To The Rafters is nowhere in sight. On the other hand, niche programs like Top Gear (UK and local) and Mythbusters are very much in evidence. The obvious conclusion? Despite their immense usefulness, EPG-based services are still very far from mainstream - perhaps because they're still too fiddly to use.
