When President Obama said he wanted to use a BlackBerry, it caused quite the debate about balancing technology and security. He loves technology and knows how to use it.

You’ll see iPODs, Blackberrys, and even a few TANDBERG video conferencing units at desks. It’s clear that this administration understands the need for open and clear communication and is willing to find the securest means to do so.

Oh, and they really like candy, too.

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July.
