Outgoing White House CIO Brook Colangelo revealed that the official White House email was down for nearly a quarter of the first 40 days that President Obama was in office.
Remember that time Gmail went down a couple times in 2009 and the Internet freaked out? Imagine that happened every three days.
The tech situation when Obama’s team entered the White House was worse than even that stat might indicate. The computer that Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emanuel got? It had a floppy drive. 82 percent of the technology in the White House had reached its end of life, Colangelo said.
