Our guide to spring cleaning your appliances

This spring, clean your gadgets. Clean your equipment. Be less rude in 2024. That’s one of my goals. Along with our anniversary stories this month, we’re also in the mood for spring cleaning. We clean AirPods and digitally declutter your computer. (And if you are physically clearance, how about making some money at the same time?)

You will be able to stick to an event that interests you.

The Peacock will host more than 5,000 hours of live coverage over the two weeks, including each of the 329 medal races. That’s a lot more than anyone could watch during the Games, so to help you keep track of multiple events at once, Peacock offers several multi-view options. On TVs, tablets and desktop browsers (but not phones, unfortunately) you’ll be able to watch four matches simultaneously. With multi-view modes, you can move the screens, select the audio track you want to listen to, and click to watch an event in full screen. Another feature, Peacock Live Actions, will help you keep track of the events you care about most, so you can continue to watch sports on screen even after the NBC broadcast switches to another location.
