President Obama Likens ‘Healthcare.gov’ Glitches to iOS 7 Launch

President Obama Likens ‘Healthcare.gov’ Glitches to iOS 7 Launch

President Obama commented on the Obamacare’s Healthcare.gov site outages today, likening the issues the website is having to Apple’s recent launch of iOS 7.

"Did you get that text?' "No, are you sure you sent it to HotPOTUS69@iCloud.com?"
“Did you get that text?’ “No, are you sure you sent it to HotPOTUS69@iCloud.com?”

The Washington Post, via 9to5Mac:

Now, like every new law, every new product roll-out, there are going to be some glitches in the sign-up process along the way that we will fix. I’ve been saying this from the start. For example, we found out that there have been times this morning where the site’s been running more slowly than it normally will.

And we’re going to be speeding things up in the next few hours to handle all of this demand that exceeds anything that we had expected. Consider that just a couple of weeks ago, Apple rolled out a new mobile operating system, and within days, they found a glitch, so they fixed it. I don’t remember anybody suggesting Apple should stop selling iPhones or iPads or threatening to shut down the company if they didn’t. That’s not how we do things in America. We don’t actively root for failure. We get to work, we make things happen, we make them better, we keep going.

Obama is constantly seen carrying around an iPad, so perhaps he was stung this week with the iMessages bug?

    It seems more likely that he was speaking to the security issue that would allow folks to make calls from the lock screen using the Emergency Call functionality.
