NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich keeps up with today’s technology on a girly pink laptop.

The Governor was fired by Donald Trump from The Celebrity Apprentice this past Sunday (Apr. 4), mostly due to his lack of skills with modern technology like emailing, texting, and surfing the web.

But the controversial politician says he’s getting savvier.

He claims to have written an entire book on his 13-year-old daughter’s pink laptop after she taught him how to type.

The teen has also been patiently showing him how to text message, and he’s finally “getting good” at it.

His only issue is making out the tiny little letters on his Blackberry screen.

At the pace he’s going, Blagojevich is a nerdy techie in the making. He may even start a personal blog someday but notes, “You gotta crawl before you can walk.”

The Celebrity Apprentice airs Sundays on NBC.
