The Obama's Give The Queen The Royal iPod
Date: April 1, 2009
Leave it to Obama to charm a woman of sovereignty by giving her one of the most prized media gadgets on the planet. After giving England Prime Minster Gordon Brown a box set of 25 American-region DVDs that didn't work on British players, the big homie redeemed himself during a visit to Buckingham Palace, where he and wife Michelle presented the Queen with an iPod loaded with pictures and videos of her 2007 visit to the States. Kudos. But unbeknownst to the Obamas, her majesty already owned a 6GB silver iPod Mini that was recommended by Prince Andrew. All in all, the Queen was said to be "delighted" with her gift and supposedly told the couple she "finally has something to listen to [her] Pantera records on" during tea time. Cheers!
