For the first time ever, the U.S. Senate is allowing offices to ditch the PC and go Mac - and Sen. Mike Lee is totally going there.
Lee, a Utah Republican and the youngest senator, has an iPhone and boasts a large Mac screen on his desk in his new temporary office, and the rest of his staff have embraced the Apple as well.
"That's young and cutting edge," Lee's chief of staff, Spencer Stokes, joked.
Before this year, the Senate system didn't allow Macs, I'm told, but maybe Steve Jobs has convinced the new, more youthful upper chamber to join the cult.
Sen. Orrin Hatch's office, by the way, is still using Windows, but the senator does have an iPad and only gave up his iPhone when he got too frustrated with getting a signal in the Capitol.
