“A gadget geek in the Oval Office”

New York Times:

Mr. Obama is the first true gadget geek to occupy the Oval Office, and yet his eagerness to take part in the personal technology revolution is hampered by the secrecy and security challenges that are daily requirements of his job.
What counts as must-have features for many people — high-definition cameras, powerful microphones, cloud-connected wireless radios and precise GPS location transmitters — are potential threats when the leader of the free world wants to carry them around.

I wonder how many people DARPA has dedicated to modifying consumer devices to be “safe” for use by high-ranking officials?
