President Obama may have an iPad, but He’s ‘Not Allowed’ to Use the iPhone

Obama iPadIt is no secret that U.S. President Barack Obama loves the iPad. The first time we saw him in the presence of Apple’s tablet, it was to give an autograph. That must have been love at first sight. In October of 2010 the President personally requested a meeting with Apple CEO Steve Jobs to discuss “economy, innovation and technology education.” Obama admitted to owning an iPad in a March 2011 interview. It is possible that, at that meeting, Jobs handed over a prototype of the iPad 2. As we later discovered, Obama was seen sporting the second-generation device before it was available to the public.

Today, Reuters reported that the President may own an iPad, but he is not allowed to own an iPhone. Good news for BlackBerry. Obama is still using a smartphone from the nearly defunct tech company.

Apple iBeacon Makes Newsstand Magazine Browsing a Virtual Reality

ByPlaceI love magazines. At least once per month, I head over to my local newsstand to check out titles from various categories I am interested in. What makes this event so special is that I am able to see all different types of magazines. Even though I may not have ever heard of a title before, if it catches my eye, I might buy it. Browsing for magazines in Apple’s Newsstand app is just not the same. You have to know what you are looking for when you start shopping.
