President-elect Barack Obama is having a tough time giving up his BlackBerry. For security reasons (both the Secret Service and Obama's legal team are worried his device will get hacked) he has been asked to 'give it up'... But as we all know, letting go of one of a communication tool as effective as a BlackBerry could/is a hard thing to do.
When asked to comment on the situation, Obama replied:
"They're going to pry it out of my hands...You know, this town's full of lawyers. I don't know if you've noticed…and they have a lot opinions. And so I'm still in a scuffle around that, but it–look, it's the hardest thing about being president. How do you stay in touch with the flow of everyday life..."
Looks like he's not going to give up his CrackBerry without a tussle. Gotta love the guy.
Note: Now that I think of it, I remember noticing this video of Barack Obama taking a vacation in Hawaii. He was on the driving range before a round of golf. You'll notice at 1:45 he takes a swing, and the BlackBerry goes flying out of its holster. Good stuff. I've done that before!
