This is the first year the Super Bowl will be streamed over the Internet – providing the opportunity to catch each (Patriots!) touchdown on a mobile device. Playing into the competitive spirit, the Interactive Ad Bureau developed this infographic to compare mobile savviness between the Patriots and the Giants.
