Obama = President 2.0?

Tools of the trade

Tools of the trade

This morning I read this article:

“Obama May Have to Ditch BlackBerry, But Could Be First Laptop Prez” on Switched.

Apparently, the next president of the United States was adicted to his Blackberry throughout his campaign. This way he kept up with his friends, family and campaign aids. As any professional knows, it is really easy to get addicted to this thing. But it’s a very good tool to communicate with those close to you on many different ways.

Now it seems he will have to give it up in the White House. There is a thing called “the Presidential Records Act” that states that every bit of communication the president sends out is kept on record and can be reviewed by the public. This means that even personal emails or text messages to his wife, kids or friends can be read by the public. Personally, I think this is a bit too much. If you are president, can’t you have a life of your own?

But rumor has it, that Obama will be the first head of state that will put a computer in the oval office.

Let’s hope this one does not get hacked.
