His ipod Rocks

I am not ganging up on Pope BXVI just because this is the 2nd post I did 'bout him getting all those expensive stuff but I've just read that he has a new toy this time. A group of Vatican Radio employees gave ze pope his very own brand new 2-gig digital audio iPod nano loaded with special Vatican Radio programming and classical music. The stainless steel back was engraved with the words "To His Holiness, Benedict XVI" in Italian.

The playlist is loaded with Italian and German and musical compositions by Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Frederic Chopin, Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky and Igor Stravinsky. He will be able to listen to a special 20-minute feature produced by the radio's English program that highlights Mozart's life and music, an English-language radio drama on the life of St. Thomas Becket and a 10-minute feature on the creation of Vatican Radio, with original sound clips of the inventor of the radio, Guglielmo Marconi, and Vatican Radio's founder, Pope Pius XI. On the player, the radio's German program included a mix of news and interviews done during the death of Pope JPII, the conclave and the election of Pope Benedict so he can relive the historical papal transition of April 2005.

I'm sure BXVI will easily get the hang of the device's trademark click wheel in a cinch.

This is not Christ's way as was said in the bible. But hey, we are all hypocritical Catholics, anyway. Can he take it a notch higher? You betcha!
