A group of Vatican Radio employees gave Pope Benedict XVI an iPod nano loaded with special Vatican Radio programming and classical music. Now that Vatican Radio offers podcasts in eight different languages, the Pope has the technological capability to plug in and import the radio's audio files. Pope Benedict visited the programming and broadcasting hub of "the Pope's radio" March 3 to mark the station's 75th anniversary.

The Pope reportedly was happy with the gift and is said to have replied, "Computer technology is the future." The Pope's new 2-gigabyte digital audio player already was loaded with a sampling of the radio's programming in English, Italian and German and musical compositions by Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Frederic Chopin, Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky and Igor Stravinsky. The stainless steel back was engraved with the words "To His Holiness, Benedict XVI" in Italian. One only hopes the music was downloaded legally
