    It's almost impossible to inconspicuously carry the iPad into the restroom. There has to be a way. The looks from coworkers are almost too much to take.

    If you wear slacks and a belt, slip it into your buttoned shirt, Apple logo facing out and hidden behind the necktie. Hunch forward so not to make the shirt taut and show what's hiding underneath. Hold a cup or mug in hand to help block the view while giving backup support to the iPad in your shirt. Rethink your walking and positioning habits to accomodate the obscurity.

    Soon everyone will be bringing an iPad with them into the restroom and it will just be the normal thing to do.

    Don't do it inconspicuously. That way they'll never want to touch it.

    Use a belt clip. No one will notice it then...

    shame, shame

    What are you afraid of? Apple restricts the explicit apps anyway. I'm sure all your coworkers must know that . . . oh, I guess you mean the articles.

    Haaa haa ha. Just bring your iphone if you have one for your 'bathroom breaks'. But really, do you really need to bring it in the bathroom with you? I understand if you're on a break and I've used my phone to look at the news apps from my phone. You coworkers are right though to give weird looks. Maybe once the novelty of the new item wears off people won't think its such a big deal.

    If not, I actually was thinking about some sort of 'pouch pocket' similar to what you might get for a passport to tuck in your back since its a bit big. It shouldn't be too uncomfortable that way and would be pretty inconspicuous.

    I wonder if there are off the shelf type pockets like that anywhere.

    It reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where George takes the book from the bookstore into the bathroom.

    Considering it doesn't support flash, and most porn sites use flash nowadays, it wont be much use in the bathroom :)

    Why would someone be jealous that you have something that they aren't interested in? Do you think you are the only person in your area who is willing and able to purchase one?

    I would never use my iPad (when I get it) in a public restroom. Same thing with my iPhone I never use it in a public restroom. I wash my hands and get out of there before I touch it again.
