With the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics just underway in Torino, Italy (the time zone is +6 from EST), it's now really easy to get instant updates on events and athletes during the games. You can sign up for email, SMS and desktop alerts at NBCOlympics.com.
Even better, if you have an Intel Viiv based-PC or Centrino mobile technology-based laptop, you can watch video highlights from the previous day's events available for viewing on demand starting tomorrow. Sign-up is at NBCOlympics.com. Hey, you can see the Games on regular TV, too. Big screen HDTV, please.
Maybe all of the action will inspire us to get off the couch and outside ourselves?
