Staying connected at all times

This comes to us from the Just Because You Can Doesn't Mean You Should Department:

Microsoft seems to be under the strange notion that people might spontaneously combust if they take a 2 minute break from checking their e-mail or stock prices. To rescue mankind from this horrible fate, they have developed an internet enabled portable toilet. Worse than the fact that somebody actually came up with this idea is the fact that somebody in upper management at Microsoft said something to the effect of, "You know, that's not half bad!" But there is a major flaw in their logic. Realistically, anybody who can't be away from their computer long enough to use the can probably doesn't ever leave the house anyway and, therefore, has no need of a portable toilet.

On the other hand, the idea of Microsoft's software and toilet paper in close proximity does have a certain ironic appeal.
