Having left the White House after serving two terms as the country’s president, Barack Obama might have his sights set on a different kind of job now. According to a new report, the former president is in talks with a “production” deal with Netflix.

There has been a lot of talk about whether or not the spread of fake news and disinformation on Facebook influenced the 2016 presidential election. It’s an idea that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has dismissed as being “crazy.” According to a new report, former President Barack Obama told Zuckerberg at one point in time to take the threat of fake news seriously.
Under the current administration, the White House has really taken to social media and the man in the Oval Office has also established his online presence on the two most popular social networks: Facebook and Twitter. Now, though, POTUS is headed over to a network that’s much more popular with teens and the younger generation, because the White House has just joined Snapchat.
Barack Obama, who happens to be 44th president of the United States, has joined Facebook today. This is his first proper presence on the world’s largest social network. Yes there have been multiple campaign-run Pages in the past, the White House has its own Page, but this one is Obama’s own, one he’ll get to keep after he ends his second stint in the White House.
The @POTUS, or President of the United States, Twitter account has finally gone live today. Previously the sitting president, Barack Obama, used to interact through @WhiteHouse or his personal @BarackObama account.

In an upcoming book by President Obama’s chief campaign advisor David Axelrod a private meeting between Steve Jobs and Obama that took place back in 2007 has been described.

2014 wasn’t a great year for cybersecurity. Some of the biggest retailers in the country were hit with cyberattacks that left data of millions of Americans compromised, data included social security numbers, credit and debit card information apart from addresses and phone numbers. President Obama today proposed three new laws that are aimed at protecting Americans’ data, and to bind companies that suffer data breaches to disclose information within 30 days.
Earlier this month, we did talk about how one would be able to stand a chance to actually code one’s way all the way to the White House. Well, here we are with Hour of Code, which saw the world’s most powerful man, President Obama, actually sit down and host a computer science workshop over at his official residence, the White House.
The most powerful man in the world, President Barack Obama of the US, has just signed the E-Label act into law today, and this particular move could result in all of those ugly logos that are printed on the back of your mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets should be a thing of the past some time down the road.
Despite being what many would deem to be the most powerful man in the world, President Barack Obama is still bound by certain rules and regulations. For instance, as much as he would like to use an iPhone as his regular communications device, he is unable to do so because of “security reasons”. In fact, when President Barack Obama jumped on board as the President of the U.S., you could […]
We think it’s safe to say things with the Healthcare.gov website haven’t been going very well over the past few weeks. Its launch was met with nearly everyone attempting to access the website unable to sign up for the health insurance coverage they wanted to obtain, and things might get even more difficult now that a hacking tool called “Destroy Obamacare” has been discovered.
The Syrian Electronic Army has made quite a name for itself. It has hacked a number of high profile Twitter accounts as well as websites, and its latest target is related to probably the most high profile individual on the planet, U.S. President Barack Obama.
