President Barack Gets to Keep His Blackberry, Makes Good Sense to ME!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Better Properties Real Estate DRE #2365

I am thrilled that in our country with "the most advanced security technology in the world", such as spy satellites or drone planes that can read our license plates and record the youtube video that is playing on your laptop while you are listening to your MP3 Player in the background, ability to track and monitor multiple streams on everyone's cell phone, that WE CAN figure out a safe way for the President to text his wife to tell her and the girls that he is going to be home late from work.

Seriously, I understand and highly believe in executive security from my many years in the State Patrol. I worked security for several Governors and worked on a few presidential visits (the security you don't see is even more amazing than the security you do see) and I truly believe that protecting the most influential person in the world is a huge job. That said, I am glad that our President can phone home, cause it keeps the wife happy and as we say at Keller Williams the values are "God, Family, then Business." Wonder if he'll follow me on twitter??? Wonder if he will blog about his day on the ride home? Well probably not.

Here is the article from RISMEDIA:

Info from your Renton Realtor Gary McNinch using technology (a Palm Treo ... not a Blackberry) to serve you better. Call, text, twit or email me when you need any help or info with your housing needs.

I was hoping they would let him keep it.  It will be interesting to see how this changes future technology in the Oval Office.

Connie - Well it sounds as if the computers in the entire White House are obsolete.  Might be time for a whole new system.  The days of instant communication are here and you can't ever go back.

I had a feeling they would have been able to increase the security on his phone..if they didn't, they would have lost a LOT of marketing punch......

I have a Palm Treo 700W and I love it.... I can't wait to get it flashed over to Metro PCS.....

Al - so what is the marketing value to Research in Motion, builder of Blackberry to have the most important man in the world fighting to use their product?

Al,  I guess I was thinking out loud about what a great advertising platform for RIM, having the President be such a great spokesman.  It is like getting free TV advertising and free product photos every time he uses it.

You will like having the MLS on your Treo.  I was showing the other day and we saw a different home that wasn't on our list.  So I just stopped, put in the street numbers of the house, the listing popped up on my Treo and I explained to the buyer the price they were asking etc.  Her answer was, "well they are way overpriced."  So it is like having a short version of the mls in your hand. Just a really great tool.

List and Sell (and be blessed)  Gary @ RentonHomeFinder.com
