The Olympics started this weekend, which means our collective Twitter feeds are suddenly inundated with Olympics-from-every-angle coverage. Not so into it? Check out the new "Twitter Doghouse" app, which allows you to unfollow fellow tweeters for scheduled periods of time.

America's Past-time and New Media
We're just over a month into the baseball season, and while I've yet to make my way down to Nationals Park, I spend more time than I'd like to admit watching Mlb.tv or switching channels back and forth between games.
I'm originally from the Bay Area, and that means I'm either a Giants or an A's fan. Sure, the Giants won the Series last year, but for me there's nothing like the green and gold.
