Obama Staffers Find Lack of Technology In White House

I don't care what your political affiliation is. This article from the Washington Post is extremely disturbing. The fact that the White House is so backwards with technology is almost unbelievable.

It's difficult to comprehend how any administration could effectively run our country without updated technology. The previous administration hadn't even updated their computers to Microsoft Office 2007!

I understand the need for security and the need to retain information for history but certainly someone who is assigned a laptop could easily hand over their machine each morning for a full download into a main database (to retain information) and some sort of security could be set up for access off-site.

I can't believe our country has been run on outdated technology! Doesn't the CIA use laptops?

I'm in shock!
