Obama Uses His iPad A Lot, Got it “A Little Bit Early” from Steve Jobs [Video]

By

USA - 2008 Elections - Texas - Senator Obama

When President Barack Obama isn’t flying around the world in Air Force One or wining and dining with the media and Silicon valley elites, he’s on his iPad.

Not only that, but the President apparently has some high profile connections at Apple. And by “high profile,” we mean Steve Jobs.

In a recent interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Obama was quoted as saying that Steve Jobs gave him an iPad “a little bit early.”

Obama in the interview:

“Steve Jobs actually gave it to me, a little bit early. Yeah, it was cool. I got it directly from him.”

Sure beats a trip to Best Buy.
