Wash. Post: At the White House, getting in touch with the inner circle's inner iPads

The folks who gather early every morning in the West Wing office of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel have something new in common these days. Practically everyone has an iPad -- or will have one very soon.

Emanuel just got his, as did senior adviser David Axelrod and deputy press secretary Bill Burton. Both communications director Dan Pfeiffer and press wrangler Ben Finkenbinder have one on order. Economic adviser Larry Summers takes his to staff meetings.

Summers has the Bloomberg app for financial information, says adviser Matt Vogel. Also Scrabble. And the first book he downloaded was a free copy of "The Federalist Papers," Vogel says. (It turns out that "Tax Policy and the Economy," Volume 4, by Lawrence H. Summers, isn't available on Apple's iBooks store.)

Burton, who has been a bit of an iPad evangelist at the White House, has the app for Vanity Fair magazine, Scrabble, a news app and the entire last season of ABC's "Lost."

"I was going to watch on our way to Indonesia," he wrote a day after the president canceled that trip for the second time.

Emanuel has "all the newspaper apps," says a top aide, and has installed the iBooks app so he can read books on the device, just like on a Kindle.
Wait, wait, doesn't President Obama consider them a distraction?
