Barack is Mac, and Pac?


Apparently, America’s president-elect is a Mac user, a Pac Man fan, and likes sticking stickers on one’s laptop. I really dig the pac-man eating the Apple logo. Is that a Speck clear MacBook cover? Commenters: let the Apple/Obama fanboy flamewars fly!

Incidentally, he also uses a Crackberry. And Biden is evidently a fellow Mac user, at least on the road. And as long as we’re on the subject: I met Al Gore briefly last week, and he was packin’ an iPhone. Although, I was so star-struck at the moment, I may have hallucinated that part along with the swarms of solar-powered United Nations black helicopters. DISCUSS.

Update: Rob Beschizza at Boing Boing Gadgets tackled this burning! hot! politechnical news! earlier today.

For those who know me, you know I’m just smiling from ear to ear.

  • It’s good to see Pacman still has influence after all these years.

    Only last year I purchased an Xbox 360 and there is a game for that called Pacman Championship Edition. They got the original creator to come out of retirement and design it for a special anniversary competition. It’s wonderful – the one and only time they have improved the game since Ms Pacman came out all of those years ago.

    I can take or leave the Mac bit of the story! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m so digging Pacman. Of course I would go for Ms Pacman ๐Ÿ˜‰ Definitely a good suggestion though.

    I think it’s even cooler that our up and comers (i.e. next President and Vice President) are all about Macs. Such a good thing.

    I’m not sure I care if Obama uses a Mac, and I hope he’s not spending lots of time with Pacman. However, I won’t mind if he’s catching the wonderful John Hodgman, Mac commercials on the breaks in the Daily Show. BTW, My Powerbook has no scratches.
