With watching the Olympics on actual TV being so, like, 2008, TechCrunch presents the best places to keep tabs online:

  • NBC Olympics: Lots of scores and news—and if you’re a premium cable customer, 400 hours of live events.
  • Vancouver 2010: The host committee’s site has the usual stuff, plus maps and more local flavor.
  • Facebook: The news, plus status updates and photos from athletes.

  • Twitter: Get athletes’ tweets in one place with a list of verified accounts.
  • Flickr: The International Olympic Committee’s official photo stream is here.
  • Yahoo Sports: Yahoo adds a special Olympics site after tuning up its search engine to better find results and news.
  • Google: The giant’s mobile search has been optimized to help Vancouver seekers.
