    Ok I had to ask this, how many of you take the iPad to the bathroom when either doing #1 or #2? Since I bought my ipad, I see myself always taking the ipad with me to check my emails and news in the morning or just to surf the internet.

    I find it to be a bit unwieldy on the toilet.. so I don't take it in there very often. I'd rather finish my business and go back to the couch to use the iPad.

    Heck no! My iPad won't ever see the inside of a bathroom haha. When you flush the toilet, it sprays water that can travel quite a bit of distance. This is why some people have caps on their toothbrushes and is the reason why I won't be exposing my iPad to that lol.

    Who knows, maybe there will be an Otter Defender case for the iPad soon. It will probably be twice the thickness of the iPad and just as ugly as the one for the iPhone. :D

    Yeah this entirely, but then I always put both lids down anyway. I mean why would you take your iPad to the loo - why!!!!!!???

    You might not notice it, but the power of the water that is flushed can spray a fine spray over items in your bathroom. This is why I always put both lids down.

    This is why Apple didn't include a camera.

    Only while doing number 2! I too put the lids down while flushing to prevent spray up on my iPad!

    No, no, it's a very small spray that all toilets spray but you don't notice it. :)

    I always put the seat down before flushing.

    I usually do for the sit down business, but don't know how it would work standing up. ;)

    That would be nice. Otterbox has had a page announcing that they will/are developing two products for the iPad, but it's been up for about two months now with absolutely no mockups, or hints at what these products will look like. Talk about missing the bus.

    Bringing it in when you have to take a long poo is one of the fundamental reason to owning an iPad.

    I don't purposely go and get the iPad if I have to go to the bathroom, but if I'm already using it then yes I'll bring it with me and on the way out I'll usually stop and strike a pose in the mirror with the iPad...

    With the name iPad, it's MEANT to be used in the bathroom!

    My iPhone and the "head" are a more likely combination. I couldn't subject the iPad to that! We aren't friends long enough for that experience!! That's special!
