You would think that the Pope of all people would be grabbing one of those new fandangled iPad thingos, but no, he will be using an Android-powered device to remotely light a giant Christmas tree display attached to the side of a mountain... 200km away.

So, if you are going to be driving around this Christmas looking at lights, this might be a good place to start. MSNBC has reported directly from the Vatican newswire:

 

Benedict XVI will activate the illumination from his apartments in the Vatican Apostolic Palace. He will touch the screen of a Sony "Tablet" with an "Android" operating system which, via the Internet, will transmit the command to switch on the electric current to the tree.

 

The Pope will wave his magic finger over the Sony tablet, and voila, Christmas tree lights ahoy!

 

The Pope has chosen Android, have you?
