The iPad is the star of Obama’s latest anti-Mitt Romney video.

The Obama team have recorded people reacting to Romney’s speech about the “47 Percent” which they watch on an iPad, reports Mashable.

Romney’s remarks about the 47 percent of Obama’s supporters who don’t pay income tax were made during a private fundraiser for donors.

Apple’s late CEO Steve Jobs also appears to be playing an important role in the US Presidential elections.

President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have mentioned Steve Jobs.

Obama was actually supposed to mention Google in his acceptance speech to the Democratic National Convention, but at the last minute he switched to referencing Jobs. He said: “We believe that a little girl who’s offered an escape from poverty by a great teacher or a grant for college could become the next Steve Jobs.”

A week earlier, Romney had said: “Usually, it doesn't work out exactly as you might have imagined. Steve Jobs was fired at Apple. He came back and changed the world.”
