It was hard to decide where to turn my head. Walking into my friends' apartment at 8 o'clock to watch the 2012 election results come in, not two, not three, not four, but five screens had been set up. A big-screen Panasonic TV was tuned to CNN. An iPad placed directly to its left was playing ABC. A laptop to the right showed NBC. Another laptop stayed on 270toWin.com, to map result for the presidential race as they came in. And a monitor connected to that showed the New York Times website with live results for the House and Senate races.
