    If I have to use a porta-john you can believe that I spend as little time as I have to in there. And no way am I touching that screen.

    Yes!

    The second bathroom in my old Florida house was so big, I had a component stereo system and full-blown bookshelf in there.

    I was going to wire every room of the house with CAT-5 ... including dropping lines into the bathroom. Why? Because I could

    I've checked my e-mail/voicemail from my cellphone in the washroom too. But it doesn't mean that I would touch a keyboard that is in a public stall. Yucky!

    As for the i-loo. Sounds like something Gizmo in Beatle Baliey would dream up.

    Off-topic:

    It's from a song by the illustrious Sacto band CAKE! The song's called Nugget. If Cake does a show in Sacto, you absolutely must go see it. I saw them at the Crest and the Cattle Club and both were awesome... I would assume that they probably sell out larger venues now though.

    internet access from a public (AND PORTABLE!) bathroom?!?!?!?
    NO f*cking way!

    If I'm already repulsed to portable public bathrooms... and who the hell would use such a thing...

    If it was in your own private bathroom it'll be ok, but not on a public bathroom...

    It's a bad idea. Duh! I wish Microsoft would just make up its mind. I wonder when the next retraction will be? Somebody needs a new media director!

    Nope, they really did plan on doing it.
    http://reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml...toryID=2736090

    "On Monday, the world's largest software maker had said the "iLoo," which was described in minute detail in an April 30 press release by its British subsidiary, was a hoax and apologized for any "confusion or offense."

    But on Tuesday Microsoft switched its story and said that the iLoo had been a legitimate project by its British MSN Internet service that was terminated after the initial announcement prompted controversy, ridicule and disgust."
