Even the Pope iPods

Vatican employees gave Pope Benedict XVI an iPod nano preloaded with Vatican Radio shows last week.

The gift — a 2GB model — was given to recognise the pontiff's first visit to the radio station's headquarters. It was the station's 75th anniversary.

"We don't have a huge gift to give to the Pope, but we do have small signs of our work to give him", Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi, Vatican Radio's general director, told the Catholic News Service.

On receiving the iPod, the Pope reportedly remarked: "Computer technology is the future."

As well as a number of Vatican Radio shows, the iPod contains music by Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky.
