Being as the White House is part of the government they don't necessarily get the latest and greatest computer stuff. Several reasons for that a big one of which is security. Our new President wants his BB and to do that you must have a BB server on the network and a chunk of software installed as well. That has to be "approved" by the security folks before it can happen. Same issues with hardware as that all has to be tested extensively and approved. So in that area they will always be behind.
Another thing that the President has done is added a blog. Blog
As for firearms related items on the agenda, I'm glad to get reassurances that there aren't any firearms items on the democrat's agenda. Now I can ignore this administration, and the Congress, and get back to important things, like creating empty brass cases and shotgun hulls.

Question concerning President Obama’s Proposed
Child Safety Lock for handguns.
If President Obama wants to mandate that all pistols have a Child Safety Lock, how is President Obama going to guarantee all the bad guys have Child Safety Locks on their weapons?
Will it be something like this?
Bad Guy goes into a convenience store to rob it.
BG “All right mister clerk! Get ready to be robbed just as soon as I get this Child Safety thing off my gun!”
BG “Hang on a minute. I can’t get this blasted thing to turn loose! Clerk! When I get this thing off YOU’RE A DEAD MAN!”
Clerk pulls out his pistol, points it at the BG and says “OK Buster! Drop that pistol and put your hands up!”
BG “Now wait a minute! Wait a minute! Did you have one of those Child Safety thingys on your pistol?”
Clerk “No! Quit messing with that pistol and drop it! Now be still and don’t move while I call 911.”
BG “Officer, Officer – That clerk pointed his pistol at me and it did not have a Child Safety Lock on it!”
Officer to Clerk “Is that true Sir? You did not have a Child Safety Lock on your weapon?”
Clerk “That is true Officer. I am licensed to carry concealed and I keep my weapon ready to use just in case some low life scum bag like this one tries to kill me and rob my store!”
Officer “I’m sorry Sir, but President Obama’s New Child Safety Lock Law requires you to have a Child Safety Lock on your pistol at all times.”
Clerk “But what about this guy? He said he was going to kill me!”
Officer “Well Sir, it looks as though the Child Safety Lock is still on his pistol. Sir, you are under arrest for violating President Obama’s New Child Safety Lock Law.”
BG “Right-On Officer! Arrest that dude for pointing a Non Child Safety Locked pistol at me. And you Mister Clerk, when my lawyer gets through with you we are going to sue you and your store for 6 million dollars!!! For pointing a Non Child Safety Locked pistol at me! I could’a been hurt! Or Killt even!!”
Pay attention. While they have you focusing on what they are gonna do with your gun rights they'll be passing all kinds of other legislation that will infringe on everything else.
Then at the end of the first or beginning of the second (God forbid) term we'll see them actually come after us.

You started off so sensible and then the tinfoil came out.When you understand that its not about logic or reasoning, then you will begin to see what gun control is all about.
Obama's goal is to bring the United States into line with the ideals of the United Nations.
Global warming is the U.N.'s idea? Wow, they have more power than I thought. To have brainwashed virtually every climate scientist on the planet, scary stuff.So far, the U.S. has for the most part been somewhat resistant to many of its ideas, such as a World Court,control of the oceans,mandated standards to reduce "global warming",
For the love of John Browning, please get your news from non-lunatic sources."Obama replied in a friendly but firm way that an election had been held in November, "and I won. I will trump you on that", according to several people who had been briefed by participants who took notes".<--from Newsmax
Just out of curiosity, how did you feel during the last eight years when you had a president who raped the Constitution in ways that Obama is only dreaming of, while at the same time doing next to nothing for gun owners?Sorry about the rant, but just thinking of where we might be in a year or two makes me ill.

The final, official report from the Government Accounting Office was released on June 11, 2002. The 220 page document says there was damage, although not as much as some of the early reports had suggested. The GAO says the damage included 62 missing computer keyboards, 26 cell phones, two cameras, ten antique doorknobs and several presidential medallions and office signs. The damage estimate was about $20,000.

I know 3 people that do it for a living that would strongly disagree with you. And to assume that virtually every climate scientist on the planet believes in "global warming" is quite frankly, ridiculous.Global warming is the U.N.'s idea? Wow, they have more power than I thought. To have brainwashed virtually every climate scientist on the planet, scary stuff.

Your three friends are also in disagreement with the National Academy of Sciences, the American Geophysical Union, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and The American Meteorological Society.That hypothesis was tested by analyzing 928 abstracts, published in refereed scientific journals between 1993 and 2003, and listed in the ISI database with the keywords "climate change" (9).
The 928 papers were divided into six categories: explicit endorsement of the consensus position, evaluation of impacts, mitigation proposals, methods, paleoclimate analysis, and rejection of the consensus position. Of all the papers, 75% fell into the first three categories, either explicitly or implicitly accepting the consensus view; 25% dealt with methods or paleoclimate, taking no position on current anthropogenic climate change. Remarkably, none of the papers disagreed with the consensus position.
And forgive this long quote, but I think it puts everything into perspective: BEYOND THE IVORY TOWER: The Scientific Consensus on Climate Change -- Oreskes 306 (5702): 1686 -- Science
"Virtually all" may or may not be an exaggeration on my part. If we could come to a precise definition or rate of disagreement among the relevant scientists, I'll answer accordingly. But the overwhelming consensus of the scientific community is clear.This analysis shows that scientists publishing in the peer-reviewed literature agree with IPCC, the National Academy of Sciences, and the public statements of their professional societies. Politicians, economists, journalists, and others may have the impression of confusion, disagreement, or discord among climate scientists, but that impression is incorrect.
The scientific consensus might, of course, be wrong. If the history of science teaches anything, it is humility, and no one can be faulted for failing to act on what is not known. But our grandchildren will surely blame us if they find that we understood the reality of anthropogenic climate change and failed to do anything about it.
Many details about climate interactions are not well understood, and there are ample grounds for continued research to provide a better basis for understanding climate dynamics. The question of what to do about climate change is also still open. But there is a scientific consensus on the reality of anthropogenic climate change. Climate scientists have repeatedly tried to make this clear.
