Apparently the 'change we need' is a better phone in the oval office. Obama recently became very vocal that we was disappointed with the low-grade technology he uses in the famous oval office. “The Oval Office, I always thought I was going to have really cool phones and stuff," Obama announced during a recent meeting in Chicago. "I'm like, c'mon guys, I'm the president of the United States. Where's the fancy buttons and stuff and the big screen comes up? It doesn't happen." Indeed the President of the United States should have a bat-phone.

Obama connected this with another point about the connection between the need for high-quality job opportunities that innovation in technology brings with it. The remark came on the back of a visit of the emir of Qatar, Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the leader of a country where because of their innovation and technology their per capita income is $145,000 annually.
"I make this point only because if there is opportunity, if people feel their lives can get better, then a lot of these problems get solved,” said Obama.
