    Do you really believe that Obama doesn't know how to work technology?

    When did he turn into an old man that doesn't know technology?

    "You're coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don't always rank all that high on the truth meter."

    "With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations, -- none of which I know how to work -- information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation."
    - Obama

    Hyperbole.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    I've never used any of those things either, so the same applies to me, I guess.

    Obama is known for his blackberry, though, so he's not completely computer illiterate; I'm sure he could learn all those things easily enough ... as could I. But that doesn't make his statement a lie.

    The correct poll option should be: Mellie didn't understand Obama's statement.

    I think you misinterpreted (seemingly intentionally) this statement.

    Hell, I'm much younger than Obama and I don't know how to work an iPod - probably cause I've never owned one.

    And yet I work in a IT-related job.
