You”re nobody without one, and the smaller it is and the fuller it is, the better for you.
The iPod, that unputdownable music machine, which everyone seems to have plugged into their heads, has finally got Heavenly approval.
Whilst stressed business travellers often reach for their iPod to relax to the sounds of Coldplay or some classical piece, it appears the Holy Father himself, Pope Benedict XVI, is also a fan of the little white box.
Apparently, officials at the Vatican have loaded his with religious music, plus pieces by Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin and he has been seen wandering around listening intently.
So, next time you stretch out on that hotel bed and plug you earpieces in, you may just be listening to the same song as the Pope. But probably not if it”s Black Sabbath!
