Yesterday I smiled at some genuinely light-hearted news. I read that Barack Obama owns an iPad. This wasn’t gladness because I’m anyway involved in the Android vs. Apple fanboy war.

If I was, this would certainly add weight to the argument that iOS is way cooler than Android. It was mostly because it improved my opinion of the American president. (Not that my opinion of him was in anyway negative before.)

Often when looking up at those in power it’s easy to judge, and criticise. But, when they comment on something so ordinary, and something we can all relate it to, it brings them down to our level, and in this case adds a more approachable side to Barack Obama. In an interview he stated the following:

“I do have an iPad,” Obama replied, joking later about also having his own computer.

“I mean, Jorge, I’m the president of the United States,” Obama said. “You think I’ve got to go borrow somebody’s computer?” said Obama to laughter. “Hey, man, can I borrow your computer? How about you? You have one?”
