In case you hadn’t noticed, we’re in the midst of the Olympics. Have you seen any good Olympic mobile content? Mippin’s launched a great catch-all Olympic category at mippin.com/olympics, where they’ve got content from nearly 100 sources being sucked in to their platform, all for easy reading on your mobile. I’ve also played with US broadcaster NBC’s mobile site, at mobile.nbcolympics.com, and was pleasantly surprised by it. Lots of content, including plenty of video.
What Olympic mobile content have you seen that’s any good? Share it in the comments.
I should add, actually, that I’m not looking at this stuff much, thanks to NBC’s annoying tape-delay of the events in which I’m most interested. They tout their “live” broadcasts of certain events in the evening prime-time slot — but these events are actually only live in the eastern US. When you live in Pacific time, like me, they show them delayed by three hours, beginning 4+ hours of coverage at 8pm every night. So I have to actively avoid the results so as not to ruin the element of surprise when I tune in to see the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. But that’s just me
Anyway, pass along anything good you’ve seen, and maybe I can give up on NBC completely.
