Confirmed: Barack Obama is an Apple iPod user

“Reports that President-Elect Barack Obama is actually a Microsoft Zune user have been crushed last night by one of Obama’s spokesmen. ‘Not true, the President-Elect uses an iPod,’ addressed the spokesman to Philadelphia City Paper – Neal Santos’ accusations,” Daniel Ionescu reports for PC World.

“It all started with a blog entry on the Philadelphia’s newspaper website of Santos saying that Obama ‘hopped on the machine next to me [at the gym] and broke a mean sweat while reading a copy of USA Today and listening to his Zune,'” Ionescu reports. “During the campaign, Obama and now Vice-President-Elect Joe Biden, both claimed to use Apple computers and music players.”

Ionescu reports, “Now, with Obama denying of actually having a Zune, Neil Santos is saying, ‘I don’t know for sure that it was his.'”

  1. No smear during the campaign against Obama’s character could be more damaging than linking him with the Zune.

    And in fairness to his “Crackberry” addiction, the Blackberry is approved for use with the mail servers used by the U.S. Senate, the iPhone still isn’t. Therefore an iPhone may not have been an option for the Senator.

  2. Has anyone really sees a Zune in the wild, that is about as hard as seeing a Dodo bird in the wild.

    Almost everyone uses an iPod and 1 out of 4 use a Mac. Let me know when you see an iPhone in the First Lady’s or their kid’s hands.

  3. Keep deluding yourself. People who are “tree-stump dumb” don’t become two-term U.S. Presidents.

    I suggest you stop listening to truly “tree-stump dumb” Hollywood actors and connect with reality for once.

  4. I suggest you stop listening to truly “tree-stump dumb” Hollywood actors and connect with reality for once.

    Neatly forgetting Ronald Reagan, Charlton Heston, Arnie and Patricia Heaton in a single sentence.

    Thanks! I’ll take your advice.

    Yes they do.

    If they have their campaigns organised by people who are smarter than they are.

    If they’re voted for by people who are even dumber than they are.

    How many people in the USA believe The Book of Genesis to be the literal truth and that the world is only 6,500 years old. Too many.

  6. @Get Real
    Mind it! Yes some of these fools can be elected… and even twice, in USA!!!
    When Bush was re-elected all the world thought America was doomed… and maybe would pull down everything with it (wich as partialy been done, in fact)!

  7. Confirmed:

    Barack Obama has already backpedaled on his “windfall taxes” pledge.

    And almux?

    Which part of Bill Clinton’s deregulation frenzy was Bush’s fault?
    Inquiring minds want to know!
