Obama to Make Over the White House With Gadget Goodies?

Ever since I heard the news that President-elect Barack Obama will most likely have to retire his BlackBerry, I couldn't help but wonder how he would incorporate his love for technology into the White House. It's already rumored that he hopes to be the first American president to have a laptop on his desk in the Oval Office, so what other high-tech toys could make the list?

Well according to the Associated Press, who asked numerous interior designers to suggest changes for the White House, many agreed that modern, high-tech, and green designs would be best suited for Obama's home needs. Here's what Lisa LaPorta, designer of HGTV's Designed to Sell, had to say about the library in the White House:

I see the library as more of an Internet cafe-lounge with state-of-the-art computer, television and surround-sound capabilities as well as a place for books. . . I would like to take down whatever art hangs above the fireplace and replace it with a flat screen television-computer monitor.

I'm looking forward to seeing what actual changes they make. I think first thing's first though, a new bed. . . I'm just sayin'.

What do they DO in there? Hee, I can think of so many things. Most of which are nasty. So I'll refrain. Hee. There must have been a laptop in there already at some point... just not used by any of the old presidents directly. Probably had some interns print out their emails. Haha.
