Campaign video reveals that Jeb Bush votes Apple
posted by Alan F. / Jul 18, 2015, 2:12 PM
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?

The Apple didn't fall far from the Bush.

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.

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.

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.

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...

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