    That's what I use my iPhone for already.

    Not sure about bringing the ipad into the bathroom with it's slick slippery design and the hard bathroom floor just waiting for it to fall and break.

    Maybe if they come out with some quality beat material.

    Well, if you are a CRAPPER CAMPER, I suppose so...but I don't often spend more than 2 minutes on the John.

    Absolutely!

    The br is one of the few sanctuaries in my home....people leave you alone ("Honey [or Dad]...where are you?" "In the bathroom." crickets.) I will spend 10-15 minutes there just catching up/unwinding. I actually think this is an unspoken sanctuary for many people...just not PC to talk about it. In fact...this secrecy must end. Let's get the facts and figures. Take a survey, please...and pass it along!

    so while YOU are camping in the crapper, where does everyone else do their business? IF you say your potty room is in the master bedroom, you could obtain the same "sanctuary-like" privacy by simply closing the door to your bedroom...

    Dave1812Dave: We have two bathrooms (neither in the main bedroom). Locking the bedroom door would be considered rude and, also, it is a shared space (as in two at a time, both your clothes are there, a tv, and so on.) One of my points about 'sanctuary' is that is is not a communal space; it is one at at a time and a locked door is practically mandatory. That makes the space kind of sacred; a hideaway. People leave you alone when you are in there (unless, as you alluded, there aren't enough of 'em to go around."

    RDowns: very funny. Of course advertising this to your spouse and friends takes away the stealth pleasure of parking your carcass with your device--my that sounds a bit lude, eh?--and, possibly ruins it for the future, as in, "Hey, it's been an hour! I know you're surfing in there...get out now!"

    Nice! Reminds me of playing Solitaire on my Palm - always the danger you'd drop the stylus and it would roll into the neighbouring cubicle.

    Disgusting. I'm never going to try, touch, or borrow someone's iPhone or iPad.

    I completely agree, I had never really thought of portable gadgets in the same way I thought of peanuts in a bar. I have to say that it is something that I don't do. I'd rather use my toilet time for quiet reflection. I mean as well as the obvious.

    When I was a child I thought, how cool it would be to have a laptop or something like it just to play adventure games while on the toilet. It was such a relaxing place to be. These days I just do the business and move on.

    Bingo. Strange but true. As I said, I don't see it that way anymore but I know that many people do.

    You need to thinnk outside the box...I have no intention of holding it...mount that bad boy on the wall. Slingbox on Wireless N or streaming movies/music/tv shows...it will be legit.

    Don't sit on the crapper for any longer than you need to or you might get hemorrhoids.

    I think the iPhone is a better choice for bathroom web browsing.

    I think this is why the iPad doesn't have a camera.

    Jobs likes to use it on the toilet and doesn't want a accidental picture of THAT taken. :p
