>From http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=03/05/02/188215 :
Microsoft is using England as a test bed for the iLoo -- a 'PortaJohn'
that allows the 'user' to surf the net while taking care of 'business.'
MSN is even looking at getting TP manufacturers to create some of their
product with URL's printed on them.
"Apple releases the iTunes music store, a revolutionary (or at least
*evolutionary*) way to buy music online.
"Microsoft responds with a hygiene disaster, and a way to make sure
there are a lot of people at public events banging on the doors of
porta-potties and peeing their pants.
"Way to go, Microsoft. You've hereby invented the WORST IDEA EVER.
