Spotted by a
Time magazine photographer at the site of the Minneapolis bridge disaster, presidential advisor Karl Rove shows White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten his iPhone.

songs he got from his media strategist Mark McKinnon.
On double super-secret background, a White House insider who asked me to refer to him as a "former Capitol Hill staffer" let slip that Rove is most disappointed in the device's lack of 3G networking -- the EDGE network makes him wait 10, sometimes 20 seconds when sending out orders to fire a crop of U.S. attorneys.
