The Olympic Games are in full swing and it is by far the most connected games the world has ever seen.  So far, this has been both a blessing and a curse. The results are spreading faster than ever before via Twitter and other social media networks. But The International Olympic Committee had to ask spectators in London to take it easy on their mobile use when broadcasters were having trouble covering a cycling event.  The broadcasters were unable to report up to date positions of the cyclists because the network was overloaded. As promised stateside, every event is available live on for cable subscribers.  That’s a first.  But it’s not perfect. Viewers who only have basic cable have no access and streaming video live on devices other than computers is proving difficult for some. I documented my own struggle trying to watch Table Tennis in a blog post on my website.
