Sorry but I tend to want to get my "business" over with and get on with life. I have never understood how some can spend an hour on the toilet! I know you must be in fear of hemorrhoids but just waiting till it falls out will also cut of the circulation to your legs!:p

I agree. Although I still take the iPhone/iPad for the brief few minutes I am there. :p

We need an emoticon to signify bathroom-generated messages. Folks could get your message, see the emoticon, and recoil in horror as they drop their own iPads with disgust. :D

I usually don't even walk into the bathroom without my iPhone. Even if its to brush my teeth or pi... urinite. I've been known to sit on the toilet and realize I didn't bring my phone with me so I put business on hold and go and grab my phone, go back to the toilet and the meeting commences.

Since my surgery bathroom time has been extended tremendously. It usually takes me at least 15 minutes to get finished. I use my kindle during this time, not the iPhone.

iphone, yes. iPad, no (since I am more likely to have my iPhone on me when I go to the toilet).

That said - I have realised that bliss is having internet connectivity in the toilet cubicle. :p

I have to say most people probably use - not that I'm checking :eek:

I do hear the noise from the usage however.

There's two kinds of people, those that use their iOS devices in the bathroom and those that won't admit to it. lol

Yeah, or something like this would appear on the lock screen when getting a FaceTime call so you could easily just send that. I definitely would use that frequently.

And this is why I never buy second hand idevices.....
that was the reply I was going with. not only do us guys use this while on the toilet when we bring the browns to the super bowl, we watch porn while using the other hand for something else. totally normal. totally gross.

I have never taken any gadget to the bathroom... [ other than when it's in my pocket ] ... I do have a BT speaker [ Bose mini link ] that sits on the shelf and streams...

I usually hold the device in my hand. Not sure how would you use it on the toilet - can you recommend some floating platforms?

Not ever. There are just some things that are best left outside of the bathroom, and my phone and iPad fit into that category. Besides, I'd rather do my business and get out than to be stuck in the toilet with my filth lingering while I'm playing on my phone/iPad. Just seems indecent to me, haha.
