Obama iPhone and iPod Touch App

Woah. As if hav­ing the cre­ative likes of Obey Giant (Shep­ard Fairey), ISO50 (Scott Hansen), and Sarah Sil­ver­man weren’t enough, a cou­ple of iPhoneDe­v­Camp alum­ni vol­un­teered to cre­ate an iPhone and iPod Touch appli­ca­tion for Barack Oba­ma.

You’ll have instant access to Barack’s posi­tions on impor­tant issues, as well as local and nation­al cam­paign news as it hap­pens. Pho­tos and videos from the cam­paign trail are all here, too.

  • Call Friends: A great vol­un­teer­ing tool that lets you make a dif­fer­ence any time you want by talk­ing to peo­ple you already know. Your con­tacts are pri­or­i­tized by key bat­tle­ground states, and you can make calls and orga­nize results all in one place.
  • Call Stats: See nation­wide Oba­ma ’08 Call Friends totals and find out how your call totals com­pare to lead­ing callers.
  • Get Involved: Do more. Find and con­tact your local Oba­ma for Amer­i­ca HQ.
  • Receive Updates: Receive the lat­est news and announce­ments via text mes­sages or email.
  • News: Browse com­plete cov­er­age of nation­al and local cam­paign news.
  • Local Events: Find local events, share by email and get maps and direc­tions.
  • Media: Browse videos and pho­tos from the cam­paign
  • Issues: Get clear facts about Barack Oba­ma and Joe Biden’s plan for essen­tial issues fac­ing Amer­i­cans.

I won­der how the McCain camp will fol­low up on this. For some rea­son, every time I asso­ciate John McCain and the web, I seem to refer to Mike David­son pun­ish­ing McCain’s web team for hot link­ing images on John McCain’s MySpace page. Clas­sic.

Any­ways, enough of the rem­i­nisc­ing. I com­mend the iPhoneDe­v­Camp alum­ni amongst the oth­er 4 who vol­un­teered their time to the project. It tru­ly gives some boost and good press to the iPhone devel­op­ment plat­form and its every­day appli­ca­tion; whether it be check­ing your health, to learn­ing why to vote for a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date.

The app is avail­able at http://my.barackobama.com/page/content/iphone

Sarah Silverman and The Great Schlep

Sarah Sil­ver­man wants Jews to get their butts down to Flori­da for The Great Schlep.

She’s hilar­i­ous. The video is pret­ty much pro-Oba­ma, but worth the watch whether you are for him or McCain. The cam­paign was paid for by the Jew­ish Coun­cil for Edu­ca­tion and Research, www.jcer.info. Awe­some right? =)

The whole bit was dang fun­ny, but here are some that stood out for me:

  • Sarah … (awk­ward pause) … Sil­ver­man”
  • All their friends are dying” (oh snap lol)
  • He’s cir­cum-super-sized” (haha)

You’ll know what I mean after watch­ing it.

schlep
intran­si­tive verb. to pro­ceed or move espe­cial­ly slow­ly, tedious­ly, awk­ward­ly, or care­less­ly
noun.
