THE TOI­LET ZONE

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - BIT RATE -

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.
