Campaign video reveals that Jeb Bush votes Apple
Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush is different than his father and brother, both of whom ended up in the White House. For one, the former governor of Florida appears to have a personality and some wit. He also seems to be aware of the world that is going on around him. An example of that is a cute video produced by the Bush campaign that reveals Jeb's Silicon Valley Favorites.

We all know that the current president has a thing for his BlackBerry handset. Obama's BlackBerry addiction dovetails perfectly with the security afforded by BlackBerry devices, making the president's personal choice of phone a non-issue. But it could be a problem if Jeb wins in 2016. Picking between the Apple iPhone and a BlackBerry, Bush goes with the iPhone which could make him the first Commander-in-Chief to bring iOS to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Will the Secret Service allow him to continue to make it his daily driver?

Other choices made by Bush include the MacBook Pro over the iPad, and a driverless car over the Seqway ("I can't wait," he says). He also chooses his own wardrobe over the turtleneck and jeans look made famous by Steve Jobs, and the hoodie worn by Mark Zuckerberg. And when asked to choose between the Apple Watch and Apple Pie, Bush proudly shows off his Apple branded smartwatch.

Being an Apple fan isn't going to automatically put Bush in the White House. After all, no responsible American of voting age is going to vote for a presidential candidate just because he/she favors one mobile platform over another. Right?

Being an Apple fan will lose my vote. A president that will FORCE Apple to return all those jobs to American and FORCE Apple to stop illegally avoiding their share of taxes while shipping their money and jobs overseas, actually WILL get my vote.

So, you are only voting for Luddites, then?

So Android users are Luddites? Kill yourself.

Oh, so Google and most Android manufacturers have not evaded taxes and have employed their entire work forces in the United States? Hypocrite.

I'd like to pretend it mattered more than that, but it really doesn't anymore. A lot of USA first buyers skipped on the first Moto X. The best we can really do right now is go for US based companies :(

They're not illegally avoiding their fair share of taxes. It's all legal, and all large corporations are doing the same things. The problem is the tax laws, not Apple.

If you vote politically based on what gadgets the candidates buy is.... Oh just explaining this to you makes me look stupid.

Companies cannot make enough profits by manufacturing phones in high income countries. They aren't even willing to pay more to the Chinese... they want to move to countries with lower income because China's income levels are growing.

I don't mind him liking the Mac but buying a Apple wristjob shows he has more money than sense.

So for a guy with millions in bank buying a $350 watch (that he prefers) over $299 watch (that you prefer) is "having more money than sense". If it was me, I'd say you have more TIME (to type your posts) than u have sense.

Somehow ppl these days with extra money to blow can't even buy things they like anymore. What a free society we live in, anybody who buy or use Apple is a dumb or retarded according to your theory. Android fans are such hypocrite.

The White House should stick to Blackberries instead of iPhones. Security alone should be the most obvious.

Once Blackberry releases that Android slider it'll be Android in the White House.

He could get a Samsung Handset with KNOX or blackberry for security those two are the most secure I think

Windows Phone would work as well as Blackberry, it is just as secure, IOS and Android, however are not secure(with IOS being extremely insecure).

Just 'cause I buy a product doesn't mean I'm a fan of that company...I bought and used Factory Unlocked iPhones for 5 years (at a reasonable price off of eBay/Kijiji), jailbreaking each and every one of them, 'cause it was what suited my desires at that time at a reasonable price, nothing to do with the branding. That just changed 10 months ago with the OnePlus One...

So what Apple uses Windows to make Mac books what's the problem with that? Huge companies got roots everywhere.

Another complete Bush loser.

If a man is running for president of the United States is a looser, what does this make you?

Yes, we all know you are huge Apple troll, so what's your point?

32. AlikMalix unregistered

Is that it? No "sensible" reply? I'm disappointed. Besides I didn't troll, I raised a question contradicting your attempt to discredit another person who is I bet very much smarter than you will ever be.
