interestingly, the app’s built-in AI will learn your viewing patterns over time and makes recommendation to you the next time you hit the Peel app. it may sounds like a minute feature, but to a couch-potato, it means cutting the hassle of browsing through the incoherent program guide and still couldn’t find what you want to watch. what’s more, the Peel hardware is aesthetically pleasing too, and it comes in three fruity flavor: apple, orange and pear.
