Now on the way: "Surfing on the loo" with Internet access at portable toilets.

The iLoo being developed by the MSN division of Microsoft Corp. in Britain is a standard portable toilet -- a loo to the British -- with a wireless keyboard and extending, height-adjustable plasma screen in front of the seat.

There would also be a "Hotmail station" with waterproof keyboard and plasma screen on the outside for those waiting in line.

MSN officials say they're negotiating for the manufacture of toilet paper imprinted with Web addresses that users may not have tried.

"The Internet's so much a part of everyday life now that surfing on the loo was the next natural step," MSN marketing manager Tracy Blacher said. "People used to reach for a book or mag[azine] when they were on the loo, but now they'll be logging on."

The device is expected to be in use at festivals this summer in Britain, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported Tuesday.

There's no word on if, or when, the iLoo will make its way across the pond.

that's great advertisement. "come, wipe yourself with our net adress." plus, when you're in a porta-potty, one of the main thoughts on your mind is "ok, i can hold my breath for another 30 seconds, don't breathe, don't breathe, don't breathe." who wants to spend more time then they have to in a porta-potty? and think of puttin your hands on a keyboard that somebody else put there hands on after goin to the bathroom. ewwwwww.

If I see one, I'll own the keyboard and the screen. If you don't know what I mean by own... you don't wanna know.

This is disgusting; wipe and then type on a keyboard, just like the person before you? NO. The lines for those things are long enough; now the wait is going to be infinite, because little jimmy is watching cartoons.
