Obama's Blackberry: "They're going to have to pry it out of my hands"

The NYT explains about Obama’s Blackberry: “Attached to his belt for years, he has vigorously argued, [it is] an essential link to keeping him apprised of events outside his ever-tightening cocoon.”

Obama on why he’s being asked to give it up: “This is a concern, I should add, not just of Secret Service, but also lawyers.”

I still propose that Obama should not give up his Blackberry, but keep it and put it to even better use. Don’t secure it, free it!

(UPDATE 1/12/09: a couple of interesting posts on the BarackBerry over at CrunchGear geek out on the issues today.)
