TED Talks

I don’t have a cable subscription. I keep up with my television exclusively with Netflix, and since Netflix doesn’t offer as much TV in Canada as it could (or maybe should), I also use my Apple TV to watch shows I love as new episodes arrive (here’s looking at you, Mad Men). I don’t have time to watch a lot of Youtube. I know, I’m missing out on a lot of memes and I must lead a very boring life. But I love TED.

For those of you who haven’t heard of it, TED is an incredible free service that filled to the brim with informative videos from special TED conferences — sometimes motivational, sometimes de-motivational, and often about science or psychology. The TED conferences are all over the place, and if you aren’t able to attend, TED makes them available for free on the Web and in a great free universal app for iPhone and iPad. When I have fifteen minutes and I want to watch something, I often watch TED videos, and very usually fill my rare days off with them. The app is a great way to experience these videos, but is it perfect? Read on to find out how TED’s service could get even better after its recent update to iOS 7.
