The president confirmed that he still owns one of the all-but-forgotten smartphones on Friday, when he informed reporters watching him board Marine One that he had almost left his behind in the White House. This brings the number of current BlackBerry users we’re aware of to two — the other one is, of course, Kim Kardashian, who called the device her “heart and soul” last month. Is this an extraordinary last-ditch marketing effort on the part of the BlackBerry’s manufacturer, or just more proof that the Illuminati exists? Only time will tell.
