According to reports, overseas Apple TV owners with U.S. iTunes accounts receive an error message when attempting to make a selection to stream a show or film from Hulu Plus.
The reports come just a day after Hulu Plus hit the Apple TV. US-based Apple TV owners with Hulu Plus subscriptions could start streaming movies and TV shows upon restarting their Apple TV. International Apple TV owners are said to be able to see the Hulu Plus app, but are unable to stream anything.
Google (GOOG) Maps is trending as the service just added New York City subway alerts for the first time. When following directions from Google Maps, users whose routes include a New York City subway with a service alert will be notified in the step-by-step directions page. The user will then be prompted to choose another route or change their departure time. Google Maps features 468 New York City subway stations, all of which will be covered by the new service. The alerts will be available online or via the Google Maps for Mobile Android application.
Rona is another popular search. The home-improvement retailer has rejected a C$14.50 per share unsolicited cash bid from Lowe's (LOW). According to a statement, Rona received the proposal on July 8. Its board rejected the bid unanimously. Now, Quebec Finance Minister Raymond Bachand said the province may take steps to prevent a takeover by Lowe's. The Quebec government stated it is opposed to the takeover, which Bachand said is not in Quebec's or Canada's best interests. Rona's biggest shareholder, Montreal-based pension fund Caisse de Depot et Placement du Quebec, raised its stake in the company to 14% from 12% on Tuesday.
