The Pope Got an iPod

NOTE: I'm on a break from blogging until the weekend.

Today, the Pope visited the Vatican Radio to mark its 75th anniversary. As expected, he was presented with gifts. But, one gift caught the attention of journalists AND the Pope:

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- A group of Vatican Radio employees gave Pope Benedict XVI a brand new iPod nano loaded with special Vatican Radio programming and classical music.

To honor the pope's first visit to the radio's broadcasting headquarters, the radio's technical staff decided the pencil-thin, state-of-the-art audio player would make the perfect gift.

Though the white iPod nano is tiny, it still made an impression on the pope. When the head of the radio's technical and computer support department, Mauro Milita, identified himself and handed the pope the boxed iPod, the pope was said to have replied, "Computer technology is the future."


He now can listen to his favorite classics from Mozart, Chopin and others. Pretty cool.
