President Obama will keep his Blackberry and use it only with a small number of close personal friends and senior staff. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs contends a compromise has been struck on the use. Gibbs admits security has been enhanced to protect the President and further his use of the device. All emails, to and from the President’s $3,300 dollar Blackberry are subject to the Presidential Records Act. That means they are public record. Gibbs says “nobody can do that”, wean him off his Blackberry use. President Obama will continue to use it to keep him from feeling like he is a bubble.
