imageBritain’s Queen Elizabeth II has joined the iPod generation. UK tabloid The Sun reported Friday that she is now the owner of a silver 6GB iPod mini, and that Prince Andrew, fourth in line to the throne, was behind the move.

“The Queen loves music and was impressed by how small and handy the iPod is,” a royal insider told the paper. “Obviously it is quite complicated to download songs, but I’m sure one of the courtiers will do it for her. Prince Andrew will probably also help out because he’s a real dab hand with gadgets.”

It’s not like she can’t get someone to do it for. You never know, the person that uploads the songs onto her iPod may end up with a knighthood.

crooow, Bush does have a country to run as far as I’m concerned. The Queen is the biggest waste of time and our money, all she does is pass laws, and the only reason she does that is because if she didn’t, she’d be overthrown which is the day I’m waiting for.

You’re right silver_haze20, Bush does have a country to run. Actually, several of them. I wonder who he’ll declare war with next…

Here’s to seeing him led away in shackles.

Let’s see… what do you think she listens to? My vote says she has an album or two of Queen. (That’s really a no-brainer.) Anyone else want to guess what she’s got on the her iPod?

“The pocket-sized digital music players can hold up to 10,000 downloaded songs.”
Those must be some really short songs.

i don’t think it’s unamerican to be critical of the president - it’s just retarded to do it on an iPod site. stick to the subject.

I didn’t catch it, but didn’t they mention Bush’s iPod on this site? This is a similar story, which is really a non-story.

I didn’t just bring up W for no reason.

Well, I’ll just sit back and let “mooo” decide what is best for us to comment about. We need to stick to the subject or else something bad will happen…
