Obama Wants to Keep his BlackBerry!

My inbox was flooded with emails this morning from readers letting us know there's been an update to the Obama Forced to Give up his BlackBerry story. In an interview with Barbara Walters, the subject came up....

WALTERS: How are you going to get along without your Blackberry?

OBAMA: (Laughs). This is a problem. I, you know, one of the things that I'm going to have to work through is how to break through the isolation ... the bubble that exists around the president. And I'm in the process of negotiating with the Secret Service, with lawyers, with White House staff ...

WALTERS: You might have a Blackberry?

OBAMA: Well, I'm, I'm negotiating to figure out how can I get information from outside of the 10 or 12 people who surround my office in the White House. Because, one of the worst things I think that could happen to a president is losing touch with what people are going through day to day.

Once you experience the Always On, Always Connected lifestyle that the BlackBerry platform provides, it's tough to go back to life without it. I'd be doing everything in my power to try and keep my Berry too!
