The struggle to keep up with major sporting events can be daunting and we all know someone who streams sports online, watches multiple games on TV at the same time, tracks scores, follows brackets all while managing several fantasy teams. Personally, this year, I will be keeping a watchful eye on Purdue as they look to march towards the Final Four.

Seeing a trend between multi-taskers and avid sports fans, Intel, a company that has capitalized by creating microprocessors that enable computers to multitask with ease, has decided to come up with a new concept called “man-tasking” – which is the ultimate combination of a sports fan and rockstar multi-tasker.
