Obama’s Favorite Techie Toy: The iReggie

A six-figure salary for the kinds of tasks my kids get a few dollars a week allowance to help with? There’s a taxpayer-supported app for that:

Washington (CNN) – Apparently President Obama doesn’t need an iPad; he’s got an aide for that: iReggie.

At the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) leaders’ retreat in Yokohama, Japan, on Saturday, a print pool reporter was within earshot of a brief exchange between the president and an iPad owner, Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva.

“So you like your iPad?” Obama asked.

The Thai leader nodded and asked Obama if he had one.

“These days mostly I have someone carrying my books. So that’s my iPad,” Obama said, referring to personal aide Reggie Love.

Obama said as much in a New York Times interview last month. “I have an iReggie, who has my books, my newspapers, my music all in one place,” he told the newspaper.

You too can have your very own iReggie. The cost? Only $102,000 per year.

The iReggie will be really earning his money in the next couple of years though, because in addition to books and music, he’ll also have to pick up the yeoman’s share of carrying Obama’s water, because it’s a job others are giving up on.
