Microsoft’s MSN Division in the UK has come up with a new product called the iLoo. It is essentially an average Porta-Potty outfitted with a computer, wireless keyboard, a telescopic plasma screen, and a wireless Internet connection so you check your email while taking a dump.

Dude! Have the designers of this thing even been inside a Porta-Potty? They are fucking gross!!! When you are inside of one of these things you are not concerned with world affairs, stock quotes, or email. You are concerned about making it out alive. You are concerned about keeping your balance and not falling. You are concerned about hyperventilating, because you are holding your breath for minutes so the the fucking toxic fumes don’t burn the inside of your lungs. You are concerned about not touching anything, let alone a wireless keyboard. Who would touch that thing anyway? Plus, you know the fucking kids are going to dip the keyboard in the vat of shit just for fun, you just know it! And there’s always the fear of some asshole flipping the whole thing over–that’s always lurking in the back of your mind. Man, this bad idea just gets worse and worse the more I think about it.

This is simply a desperate attempt to find revenue outside of software licensing by Bill and Co. If this is their best idea, they’re in trouble.

  1. Sounds like a waste of money to me also. The toilet paper might be fun though….they can sell advertising space on the sheets of toilet paper for distribution everywhere. I’m sure there are plenty of folks who wouldn’t mind wipin’ some crap on the microsoft name.

  2. Yeah, Microsoft toilet paper could become a big revenue stream for them. There’s definitely a lot of people hatin’ on Bill and Co. to make it worth their while. I wonder why we haven’t seen it yet–it seems like the next logical step.
