Barack Obama will likely give up BlackBerry as president
Barack Obama is going to have to give up some of his tech-loving ways when he enters the White House.
While he’s obsessed with checking his e-mail via BlackBerry, the U.S. president-elect will either have to forgo digital correspondence entirely or run the risk of having all of his e-mails made public.
Due to transparency laws in the U.S., e-mails or letters sent by the president can be made public.
According to the New York Times, Obama has been constant in his BlackBerry usage, increasingly relying on its e-mail capabilities.
During the election campaign, Obama’s only means of communication with many of his friends and supporters was through his BlackBerry.
Obama seems determined, however, to be the first U.S. president to bring a laptop into the Oval Office.
