This is sure to hurt Apple's share price

Known already for his expensive taste in shoes (Prada) and sunglasses (Gucci), Pope B16 has now entered the computer age with his first iPod, a 2-gigabyte Nano, a gift from Vatican Radio employees. The Nano came loaded with programs from Vatican Radio (skip, skip, skip) and some of Papa Ratzi's classical favorites, Mozart, et al.

Now the real question: What song will be B16's first download? Perhaps last night's Oscar-winning "It's hard out here for a pimp"? (Joseph will just change "pimp" to "pope" when he listens, 'cuz it IS hard out there...)

Of course, if I was Apple, I'd be doing some quick work--what 16-year-old is going to want the pope's digital music player, especially one that comes in papal white! Add to that the new iBelieve accessory from, which turns the iPod Shuffle into a cross (!!), and you've got one unhip listening device.

Or, perhaps, a tool for evangelizing the next generation.
