From the recent batch of new pics on the WH Flickr site, the 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.
Self-identified as change agents, weren’t Obama and Biden, themselves, supposed to embody the “new new thing?” Here, however, it feels the White House seeks to borrow a buzz of energy and cred — in this case (in a caption that actually ID’s the product, in a photo that feels more like a magazine ad), showing how down they are with the tech gadget.
