Not everyone is happy about the gold medal in Canada

Holy puck

Even if you don’t care about hockey, punch up NBC. USA ties Canada with seconds to go, and it’s 2-2 going into OT.  Update: Take off, eh? Canada bags the gold 3-2.

Great clip here on the evolution of Olympic pictograms, c/o the New York Times.

Psst, buddy: Trade ya a Norway for an Apple

Pin trading is a huge deal at each Olympics. The Apple Store at Pacific Centre in Vancouver was giving these away as a bonus, and the Apple Store at Oakridge Centre had a special Nano pin.  Didn’t make it to the Games? Oh, there’s a lot of ’em here.

Dress up your desktop

The Olympics start Friday, but you can give your computer an Olympic theme right here, lots of designs in multiple sizes.

Vancouver’s wired

So to speak. The Olympics kick off Friday, and CNET has a great article here on just what kinda hardware is running the show. Numbers that will make a geek swoon include:

More than 5,000 kilometers of cable…More than 7,000 cell phones…More than 40,000 Ethernet ports…and more than 6,000 PC’s. Mac count: unknown.

Search engines gear up for the Games

Huge events mean spikes in searches for that event, and you can bet the search guys will be handling a lot of queries. Bing is going to make out like a bandit with this one, as they are the search engine on NBC’s Olympic website. Google’s got a nice clean (imagine that) Olympic reference site here, and Yahoo’s site is supposed to launch Wednesday.  Cuttin’ it close, Carol.
