Whenever heads of states, kings and queens, presidents and dignitaries meet each other, there's always the customary exchange of gifts.. But what was tech-savvy US President Barack Obama's gift to the Queen in return for the silver-framed picture of Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh (a standard present for visiting dignitaries) which was given to him? An iPod.

The Queen's official gift from the 44th President and his wife was an iPod featuring footage of her 2007 visit to the US, as well as a good selection of Broadway songs, coupled with a songbook for 'The King and I', signed by composer Richard Rodgers.

It's not known which iPod model it was, but hats off to the forward-thinking President - talk about keeping up with the times..
