THE TOILET ZONE
When once they grabbed a magazine when nature called, it seems that people these days run into the loo with a smartphone in hand. Yes, eerily enough, the toilet is a favoured texting zone for a lot of people. A survey of 1,000 people in London—earlier surveys also revealed the same results in Australia and the Us—says that three quarters of the respondent said they had texted, emailed, played with apps or used the Internet while sitting on the toilet. Over 90 per cent of the respondents added that they had returned calls while relieving themselves, some even admitting that they had participated in conference calls. Oh, and by the way, among the toilet communicators, those who like to multi-task, by doing a number of things while using a range of apps, were likely to be Android owners. No-nonsense Blackberry users tended to take and make calls. Those with iphones were more like to be playing with apps in the comfort station.
