BBC: Obama gives Queen of England an iPod

A nugget from the BBC’s blanket coverage of the G20 summit and President Obama’s first visit to the U.K.:

“The BBC’s Peter Hunt says: President Obama has given the Queen an Ipod during their private meeting at Buckingham Palace. It contains footage of her state visit to the US in May 2007. The Queen has given the president a silver framed photograph of herself and her husband. The official picture is what she gives all visiting dignitaries.”

Recall in December the flurry of speculation after Obama was seen working out in a Philadelphia gym listening to a Zune. An Obama spokesman was quoted at the time saying, “Not true, the President-elect uses an iPod.”
