Could You Give Up Technology?

Could You Give Up Technology?

Ah, the Presidency. Unfettered access to information, all at the click of a ...

Hey! Where are you going with my Blackberry?

That's right. It seems our commander in chief is going to have to surrender his right to bear a PDA come January. Since the dawn of the information age, Presidents have had to surrender the freedom to text or e-mail, mostly because of security concerns that their every word could be used against them.

Obama, of course, is rarely seen without his Blackberry, and wants to have a laptop in the Oval Office. Do we think he'll get his wish? And of course, the real question is...Mac or PC?

Mac, of course. And as far as the Blackberry is concerned -- that's a tough habit to break. We are so rooted in our need to use a phone 24/7, it almost seems impossible to give it up. Sad, but true. I feel his pain!

I think Obama will get innovative, so this will be interesting. And, as I have just recently converted to the Mac world -I
envision a Mac in the Oval office ;)
