iGod?

iGod. What?
We all know what iPod and podcast are, in fact, the word “podcast” is an official English word and listed in Oxford English Dictionary. There's a new device that borrows the ideas of iPod and podcast... but to be used for broadcast readings of the Bible. And the obvious nicknames? iGod and godposts.

The same size as an iPod, the MegaVoice player stores up to 160 minutes of spoken word on an un-erasable silicon chip.

News.com.au, Loaves, fishes, chips (8 May 2006):

An Australian inventor has designed an MP3 audio player to broadcast readings of the Bible in any language.

The same size as an iPod, the MegaVoice player stores up to 160 minutes of spoken word on an un-erasable silicon chip.

The player was designed by a former champion Australian rower and ex-state director of the Australian Bible society, Tom Treseder.

Mr Treseder's aim was have a cheap device that could be used as a way to spread the word of the bible, with a particular focus on developing countries and the Middle East.

Quoted on the Australian Christian Channel's website, Mr Treseder said: "MegaVoice is as revolutionary as the Gutenberg press."

Queensland's Bible society recently recruited former Australian Senator Lady Flo Bjelke-Petersen to help raise funds to send 9000 of the players to the Middle East.
The range includes a model with a built-in solar panel to recharge batteries, to be sent to the developing world.
