Forget being a casual spectator on the couch.
This year's summer Olympics will offer more social interaction than ever.
They're gonna have a 2nd, a 3rd, and a 4th screen with them. They're gonna have so many ways to interact, watch and view things happening at the London Olympics beyond television than they've ever had before.

He recommends a dashboard app like banjo that puts material from multiple social networking tools in one place.
the best part of some Olympic apps is live, extra streaming video. The worst part? That can eat up data quickly. So run those apps on Wi-Fi.
That way you're off of the data charges, you're going to get a better connection in some cases to view the video and content. And you'll keep that bill way, way down. So Wi-Fi, connect over Wi-Fi.
