And speaking of the State of the Union speech, President Obama will giving his Address tomorrow night at 9:00 pm EST. If you don’t have a TV, you can watch the live stream on the White House website or iPhone app.
The delivery of the State of the Union Address has come a long way. Did you know it used to be called the Annual Message and was simply delivered as a written letter on paper? It wasn’t until 1913 that the Address was first given as a speech. And then, a decade later, technology entered the scene. The first radio broadcast of the Address was in 1923; the first televised Address was in 1947; Internet webstream in 2002; HD TV in 2004; iPhone and iPod touch in 2010; and (since the White House app runs on iPad, albeit in double-pixel mode…) iPad in 2011.
