We're really excited about the London Games - and also the fact that, as journalists, we're able to sneak into some of the best events without tickets.
We know, we know - we're sorry. It's a hard job but someone has to do it... Still, in order to tell the big stories and find the small nuggets everyone else has missed - and tell you about it - we need a lot of tech. Most of it useful.
We've picked 10 gadgets to help us report on the Games.
From the Nokia 808 PureView's 41-megapixel camera to iPhone battery packs, cases and lenses, we've got everything we need (we hope) to do our jobs. And try out tech in the process.
Take a look at our selections in the slideshow - and check back after the games for our reviews.
