At the White House, getting in touch with the inner circle's inner iPads
Edited on Wed Jun-09-10 09:38 PM by onehandle
The folks who gather early every morning in the West Wing office of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel have something new in common these days. Practically everyone has an iPad -- or will have one very soon.

Emanuel just got his, as did senior adviser David Axelrod and deputy press secretary Bill Burton. Both communications director Dan Pfeiffer and press wrangler Ben Finkenbinder have one on order. Economic adviser Larry Summers takes his to staff meetings.

The device is the hot, new White House toy, a gizmo that is popping up around Washington but seems to be particularly in vogue at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

And before you say anything about the 'security breach,' it was an AT&T problem on their billing system involving iPad 3G accounts.

It was fixed. A top security group said it's unlikely any emails were stolen.

We finally settled on a Mac Mini, will have to send instructions to BIL to disable firefox and Safari's ability to go to flash sites.
