iPope

I honestly don't know whether this is true or not as Britain's The Sun is roughly equivalent to the bastard child of the National Enquirer and The New York Post.

Still, it's fun to think about the Catholic Church's trajectory from executing heliocentric scientists to rockin' out with white headphones... but then again, etymologically speaking, pontiff comes from bridge...

The Pope has become a man of iPod . . . and got a Nano to listen to his top tunes.
Pope Benedict XVI was given the £139 gizmo by staff at Vatican Radio.
It stores 1,000 tracks and his officials have loaded it with his favourites — mostly religious music, plus pieces by Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin.
The Pope, 78, is a pianist and appreciates good music. He has been spotted around the Vatican using his iPod and distinctive white earphones.
A spokesman said: "He is very pleased with the iPod... The Holy Father likes to unwind listening to it and is of the opinion that this sort of technology is the future."
How you can believe the ipod is the future but still castigate gays is beyond me.

In other ipod news, a Jane Doe jogger struck by a car was ID'd by her ipod's serial number... (TheSun)
