Submission + - Obama is an iPhone, McCain is a Blackberry (

Dekortage writes: "If the U.S. presidential candidates were smartphones, Obama would be an iPhone and McCain would be a Blackberry. At least, that's the finding of a branding analysis that asked respondents to think of the candidates in terms of popular brands. Obama apparently also relates to James Bond, Google, Target and Sam Adams, while his Republican opponent relates to Jack Bauer, AOL, Wal-Mart and Budweiser. And they are both related to Starbucks. One thing that wasn't asked: if the candidates were Linux distros, which ones would they be?"
