iPod user HRH Queen Elizabeth II has admitted she finds Sony products too difficult to use.

Sony's new CEO Howard Stringer recounted a luncheon with the Queen to Sony shareholders. He told them that the Queen had struggled with certain Sony products.

According to Stringer the Queen told him: "I have a lot of trouble with your remote controls. Too many arrows."

Hopefully Her Majesty finds the iPod with its scroll wheel and human friendly interface somewhat easier to use.
