Hillary Clinton Is Into Her iPhone, but Wearables Not So Much

“I don’t throw anything away."


Hillary Clinton says that what the country needs is less divisiveness. That said, when it comes to iPhone versus Android, her mind is made up.

“IPhone,” the former secretary of state said, answering the first question during an interview with Re/code’s Kara Swisher.

But, in full disclosure, Clinton said that she also carries around a BlackBerry, like most of Washington, D.C.

“I don’t throw anything away,” Clinton said, adding that she also has an iPad and an iPad mini. “I’m two steps short of a hoarder.”

What she does not yet covet are wearables, noting that she has been given several Fitbit and Jawbone devices, but never uses them.

“You can tell I am not doing Fitbit,” Clinton said, drawing chuckles from the audience. “I’m not in a wearable frame of mind.”

Another thing she was noncommittal on: A possible 2016 presidential bid.

“I am talking to a lot of people,” she acknowledged in response to a question from Swisher.

Why not declare now?

“All in good time,” Clinton said, saying she is a list maker and has yet to check off all of the items on her list.

Clinton did talk a great deal on other topics, including net neutrality, Edward Snowden, the threat posed by ISIS and what she wants to see the next president accomplish.
