Noted: NBC pledges to air Olympics live (somewhere)

One of visiting blogger Ron Rapoport's knocks on the NBC way of doing the Olympics is that the network wouldn't air live events for viewers in the United States. (Many others in the world get to see the Games as they happen.) So let's note this: as part of the deal NBC agreed to with the International Olympic Committee last week, NBC says it will start with the 2014 Olympics to make every event available live on one platform or another — meaning on TV, broadband, tablets and/or mobile phones.
