The Apple fanboy-in-chief made an interesting switch during his convention speech. Mashable notes that in his prepared remarks released to the press, Obama said, “We believe that a little girl who’s offered an escape from poverty by a great teacher or a grant for college could become the founder of the next Google.” As delivered, the line ended, "could become the next Steve Jobs." The switch may have something to do with Jobs's widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, attending the convention with Chelsea Clinton this week — or maybe the president just really wants to get his hands on an iPhone 5.
