Pope gets new iPod nano
A group of Vatican Radio employees gave Pope Benedict XVI a new iPod nano loaded with special Vatican Radio programming and classical music according to a Pocket-Lint report. The custom Nano had "To His Holiness, Benedict XVI" engraved in Italian. "We don't have a huge gift to give to the Pope, but we do have small signs of our work" to give him, said Vatican Radio's general director Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi. The report says that that the Pope replied by saying that "Computer technology is the future". Pocket-Lint notes that the Vatican Radio offers podcasts in eight different languages.
