Report: Obama Plays BrickBreaker on Mobile Phone

February 22, 2009 -

From the Consider the Source Dept:

Gossip mag The Star reports that President Barack Obama indulges in mobile phone gaming apps:

During his first days in office, President Obama laid down the law — Hands off my BlackBerry! But his insistence on keeping it wasn't just because he wanted to stay in touch with family and friends. Turns out the Prez is hooked on playing the mobile game BrickBreaker!

"He plays to unwind," a confidante reveals. "Every night before bed, he gives it a few minutes."

And he's hardly all thumbs.

"His high score is around 15,000!"

ITT people compare themselves to the President of the United States on the basis of cell phone games.

"I got to level 14 in Tetris, clearly I should be the presidential nominee in 2012!"

Re: Report: Obama Plays BrickBreaker on Mobile Phone

I'm sure his score's higher than 15,000.  I bet it's probably closer to like 770, maybe 780 billion.

Re: Report: Obama Plays BrickBreaker on Mobile Phone

This would make sense, during the President Campaign, President Obama said the last videogame he played was Pong. (I know his daughters both have a DS and the family bought a Wii...) BrickBreaker would be similar to Pong and would probably fit Obama's style. But President Obama plays Basketball/ workouts to really rewind I believe. I'm just a little confused about the need for every news media to report on Obama's life 24/7. I probably know more about Obama than my only family members.

I do the same thing with my DS. It's not a bad way to unwind.

This may just be a gateway game, soon you'll see "beat down by Mr. President" in Halo 3.

MaskedPixelanteHey, so remember that "redeem your Sims 2 key on Origin for a free copy of the all-in-one edition" promotion? Well, it didn't work, so to make up for it, just go into your Origin profile and redeem the product key "I-LOVE-THE-SIMS" for your free Sims 2.07/23/2014 - 9:12pm

Sleaker@MW - I still think Cogent/Level3 hookups were lacking prior to the comcast switch, but I do think verizon is being dumb here.07/23/2014 - 12:06am
Andrew EisenOf course it's a question. It's got a question mark and everything!07/22/2014 - 6:43pm
Matthew WilsonHate to say it, but that poll is not even a question. there is too much evidence that points to Verizon. http://www.extremetech.com/computing/186576-verizon-caught-throttling-netflix-traffic-even-after-its-pays-for-more-bandwidth07/22/2014 - 6:23pm
