    Thumbs down Obama: Too Much Information Bad - Can't Work an iPad

    HAMPTON, Virginia US President Barack Obama lamented Sunday that in the iPad and Xbox era, information had become a diversion that was imposing new strains on democracy, in his latest critique of modern media.

    ...

    "With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations, -- none of which I know how to work -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation," Obama said.

    Sure, information is bad for a democracy? Can't work an iPad or iPad? Um, yeah.

    This only makes Obama look like a moron.
    If he says he can not manage an iPad that a two year old or a hundred year old can take to in minutes, should he have been entrusted with the US Presidency?

    Do you think that this might have something to do with the investigation / witch hunt against Apple? I cannot believe that Obama would would grab an iPad and not let go.
    Most probably tapped on my iPad!

    Seems I remember that during his campaign, he lamented he was going to have to give up his Blackberry in the White House for security reasons (and probably to keep him from texting something stupid that would be picked up by the news media). Me thinks anyone who can operate a Blackberry would be a natural on the iPad. It's so easy to use it practically works itself!

    He should take the time to figure it out. I bet there will be some wicked Golf GPS apps developed.

    I recall that they found a solution with a specially secure executive WinMo device.
