Nice catch from Mashable:

During his highly-anticipated acceptance speech to the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, the President was supposed to give a shout-out to search giant Google. Instead, at the last minute, he opted to praise Apple’s founder.
Here’s the line from Obama’s prepared remarks, as given to the New York Times: “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 founder of the next Google.”
And here’s the line as delivered: “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.”
The last-minute switch suggests Obama ad-libbed the line, ignoring what was on his teleprompter.

An Apple fan even after Steve Jobs reportedly told him he wouldn’t win reelection. That’s true gadget love.
