Bathroom Break Aka Text Messaging Break Aka Phone Call Break

Let’s say, what percent of us go to the restrooms, powder room, lavatory, john or whatever we name it to check a text message, voice mail, answer or make a call and/or just to play some app games on our phone. Well we would be part of the 750 Americans out of 1,000 that use our phone in the restroom. In the United States, its common how technology these days are improving much faster, but then it seems that we ignore WHERE we use our mobile devices. In class we always discuss the improvements, upgrades, differences of new, old, presently and original devices/technology. But this is a different chance for use to talk about.

It’s a close chance that one of us follow into the percentage of  “67 percent reading, 63 percent answering a phone call and 41 percent initiated a phone call without waiting to exit the facilities first” in the United States from the IT in the Toilet study. It appears clearly that whenever we feel bored or feel the need to keep ourselves busy we reach for our devices. I would like to discuss the reason or need why we have this urge or addiction I might call it to be part of the 77 percentage “we can’t keep our hands off our devices”.

Furthermore into the study, it’s funny, sick and not thought of that they found out that 92 percent of the individual respondents wash their hands after using the restroom, BUT while the 14 percent DON’T was their phones. So let’s think about that while a making a phone call, text, game play on your or another’s phone/device.

Going through articles, additionally found is What the heck, while who ever is on the toilet, not only playing apps on our phone but a app that flushes your toilet. One that flushes, cleans after your business and adding more to keep a diary of your stuff to keep you on track to healthy. This article, is a smart phone app that can make your bathroom experience better? Is this something nessary?

Now since we were talking about using mobile devices in the john, I came by an article that a technology device made by Mario Lukas from Germany invented and created a toilet paper dispenser that prints out twitter feedback, yea I said PRINTS OUT on the toilet paper the feedback. Will this be something that we spend much more time in the restroom or is this taken a little too far.
