    Do you think that iPods will now say "By appointment to her Majesty the Queen" on the back with the seal on it?

    No. It's a report written off information from The Sun, or at least that's what it sounds like from the article. So you're sort of right.

    I just can't understand why she's only getting an iPod mini and not a proper iPod, it's not exactly like she has to save for years for one.

    i can just imagine some guy in some posh suit and white gloves standing beside the queen holding the ipod in a silly pose while she listens to it through gold earphones.
    dont most headphones have gold bits in them to enhance the sound?

    anyway, you fellows recall the golden jubilee's free rock concert? i think she does like a good bit of rock!BEYYYONCCEEE!!!

    "Queen Elizabeth II has reportedly joined millions of iPod users today – as she approved the purchase of a six gigabyte silver iPod mini. The iPod mini was purchased by a royal staffer for £169 ($309), reports The Sun – a daily British tabloid.

    The Duke of York, Prince Andrew, who is the Queen’s second son, was said to be behind the iPod purchase. It is believed he will be the one to educate the Queen how one uses ones iPod; Prince Andrew was her mentor after a cell phone purchase in 2001. The Queen is not planning on downloading music herself, rather a staffer close to the Queen will prepare and download playlists for her.

    The purchase comes shortly after U.S. President George W. Bush announced his adoption of an iPod a few months ago. Although President Bush unsurprisingly packed his iPod with country tunes, it's unknown what the Queen will load hers with (ed. One wonders whether the Sex Pistols made the grade).

    Neowin would like to ask you - what do you think the Queen will put on her new iPod mini?!"


    ....a bit hip for a granny?!
