Today’s modern computer hardware is nothing like it was as little as five years ago. It’s super small, lightening fast and 100 percent portable. These days, a business person can make deals on his or her tiny BlackBerry or smart phone anywhere – on a plane, mid transit, nights, weekends – the possibilities are limitless. If you can carve out time in your day, you can interact in today’s 24/7 global economy. Often times, we attribute the constant flow and traffic of information among computer hardware and the Internet as business related. Certainly, a large bulk of modern computer hardware and Internet users have business on the brain as they communicate instantly across the globe – but for the sports fan, the new computer hardware becomes a lot more than a way to earn a living.
Since the advent of the modern family unit, husbands and fathers have been easily found in front of the radio or television for the “big game”. No matter his sports preference, be it baseball or bocce ball, football or fencing, if the game is somehow broadcast or televised, the man of the house is typically not far from eye or ear shot. It doesn’t come as a huge surprise then, that the sports fans of today have figured out how to make new computer best suit their needs. If you’re familiar with the iphone, you know how important “apps” or gaming and computation applications for the iphone, are. In fact, several apps have been developed specifically not only for the iphone but for the computers as well to track scores, watch games from across the country, and complete with other sports fans for points. Fans can’t get enough!
The booming popularity of hand held computer hardware that can easily access the Internet has also brought “fantasy sports”, or an entire new online world, where fans can actually draft and field their own teams made up of actual athletes playing in actual games in real time. Today, we can see sports fan enjoying the videos of their favorite sports events via web streams in their media players like vlc media player. Great for the sports fan, the technology fan, and everyone in between!
