Barack Obama’s BlackBerry addiction is about to stop soon
It seems that the elected U.S. President - Barack Obama, has a slight addiction to the RIM BlackBerry devices. The people are saying that no matter where he is, he carries his Smartphone constantly and keeps in touch with colleagues and friends via e-mail. Unfortunately, it may become necessary for him to stop this practice soon because, according to the law, the general public must have access to his entire official correspondence. Obama is not the first U.S. President facing this issue – Clinton also had to cease the e-mail services.

However, according to the New York Times, there is still possibility for solution of this issue – allowing the President to receive e-mails but not to send them. Therefore, Mr. Obama will still have the chance to enjoy the new BlackBerry Storm

If I liked Verizon, I wouldn't be bragging about that. The man hasn't made the best choices, ya know?

Bush has no idea how to work a Blackberry and if he did all emails he sent from the phone would be public record

I'll take a hint you can't proof read your statements, tool. By posting a story about a political figure, it fairly opened the gates for "political banter".

Maybe he should work on quitting his smoking addiction. Because you can't do that in the White House either!

I don't think that's correct because there was a associated press story that Verizon deployed a COW (cell on wheels) for McCain and tried to pass it off as if they would do that for all there customers ( we all know they would not ) and the Obama camp cried wolf and Verizon put up a Cow for him too

ummm actually during natural disasters such as katrina and ike verizon has sent out c.o.w.s just for future reference you may want to know what the term "cry wolf" really means.

COWs are for large events and COLTs are for natural disasters.

"Barack Obama’s BlackBerry addiction is about to stop soon." Redundant headline. If you are going to re-post from other news sites, please think about your headlines. "...about to stop soon." You should have used "about to stop" or "stopping soon". This is trash.
