A wave of technological change in government gadgets

According to Washington Post reporter Michael S. Rosenwald, the federal workforce is on the cutting edge of technological gadgets. Blackberrys are on their way out and iPhones are the communication tools of choice.

Writes Rosenwald:

“The flashy consumer products that have been adopted in the corporate workforce — upending BlackBerrys for iPhones, Microsoft Outlook for Gmail, and lately laptops for iPads — are now invading the federal government. The State Department. The Army. The Department of Veterans Affairs. NASA. The General Services Administration is in the process of moving 17,000 employees onto Gmail.”
