No Wonder The Net Is So Full Of Crap

from the how-long-you-gonna-be-in-there? dept

Maybe Microsoft's plans for the iLoo weren't so bad after all: a new survey on American internet use says that more than half of people that have used WiFi have used it in the bathroom. One of the people behind the survey says he thinks some people go in there to surf in privacy -- making you wonder exactly what they're looking at in there. Maybe this will be enough to get Microsoft to reverse itself again and restart the iLoo project, since evidently so many of us can't even use the toilet without checking our email.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Re: Windows XPoo Pro...

    I recall a study from my Psych 101 days that mentioned a bowel movement coinciding with a release of neurotransmitter's in the brain, cascading to a momentary feeling of lightness and euphoria. These brain cocktails can foster creative thinking, so it stands to reason that, yes, indeed, one could get some serious creativity done while leaving a poop.
