Mobile Internet Use Thriving -- In The Toilet
from the not-really-too-surprising-really dept
Last year, a study said that a third of British people made phone calls while naked, and another found that nearly 4 out of 10 Americans thought it was okay to talk on the phone while in the bathroom. These, of course, came after a 2005 study that found half of WiFi users have surfed the net from inside the can. Building on all three of those is a new survey from T-Mobile in the UK, which says that 15 percent of the UK adult workforce "hides" in the bathroom to go online with their mobile phones, apparently mostly to get around their employers' bans or restrictions on using the web. Apparently there's quite an audience of web users inside bathrooms; when will crafty entrepreneurs start doing more to capitalize on this captive market?
