Obama has a Pacman on his Apple computer:

President Barack Obama, head of state, celebrity, pop culture icon, has a long, awe inspiring list of achievements, including:

Community organizer, professor of constitutional law, State legislator, United States Senator, exceptional speaker with two Grammys, use of MacsĀ to mobilize the most-hi-tech campaign in history, named Time Magazine’s 2008 Person of the Year, rated the most popular world leader in 2009, and a symbol of hope.

One more thing, Obama is a Mac user. More specifically he uses an Apple computer MacBook Pro.

Newsweek reports when he is on the road, Obama uses Apple computer’s built in iSight camera (standard on Apple laptops since 2006) to video chat with his family.

He also seems to like Pacman. Obama’s MacBook Pro has a pacman sticker looking right at the delicious Apple, ready to get a power-up.

Speculations are that he might become the first US President to have a laptop on the Commander in Chief’s table in the Oval office. And if that were to happen, it would be a Mac. File under “You are doing it right!”
