Barack Obama, responsible for the most technologically prepared presidential campaign of all time, was greatly shocked when he arrived at the White House. The president-elect and his staff, accustomed to using Apple computers and the most modern personal computer technology available, found, when government headquarters arrived, outdated facilities and equipment.
The right to own the device, however, was not achieved peacefully. White House bureaucrats were reluctant to approve the use of the BlackBerry for the new president, due to routine information security procedures. Everything indicates, however, that they were unable to stop the new president's desire, since, for him, maintaining contacts by email is a way of escaping the traps of power and staying in contact with ordinary people. Be very welcome, Barack Obama!
