Spotted by 9to5mac on the White House's Flickr account, this
new Apple Ad shot of US Vice President Joe Biden showing an iPhone app to President Barack Obama is making the rounds on the interwebs today. The official caption reads:
"Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama look at an app on an iPhone in the Outer Oval Office, Saturday, July 16, 2011. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)"It's not new to see iDevices inside the White House. Barack Obama famously owns an iPad, which he reportedly loves. To see an iPhone there is a surprise though, as it was widely reported that the device had never been approved to be used by the President for security reasons. It is possible, however, that the secret service made some progress since his arrival, or that this iPhone simply isn't theirs. As you can imagine, everybody is dying to find out what they're running. Seeing Barack's smile, my guess is they're watching Robin's latest Appisode, but I might be wrong. What do you folks think?
