Genialidad de la revista Wired para contarnos que la radio del Vaticano le dio al Papa Benedicto XVI un Ipod Nano con material generado por la emisora para que conozca de qué se trata un reproductor de mp3. Abajo, la noticia tal cual fue publicada en el blog de Wired
According to a Catholic News Service report, Pope Benedict XVI was the recent recipient of a brand new iPod nano. Lest you think the Pope might be taken off-guard by such a swish new product, you can rest assured that his response was cool, confident, and appropriate ca. 1978.
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."The iPod came preloaded with Vatican Radio broadcasts, news and interviews from just after the death of J.P. II, and some choice cuts from Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin,Tchaikovsky and punk-rocker Stravinsky. What the article doesn't mention is that if the iPod came pre-loaded with music, the Pope is now an evil music pirate. (Arr, your holiness!) Now that the Pope is equipped, I have some modest recommendations for some new tunes for him to seek out: The Pilgrim Travelers' "Jesus Hits Like An Atom Bomb" Coco Rosie - "Jesus Hearts Me" Cake - "Jesus Wrote A Blank Check" Any other recommendations?
