The iToilet. Oh, it's not like you weren't expecting it. I'm surprised it took this long, actually.

Amusing, but anyone who refers to a Microsoft product as "ridiculously fast and super-reliable" is full of a whole different kind of shit.

It didn't. This Japanese rendition of the idea is close to three years old.

I think someone is shortly going to be getting a big check from a Mr. Gates of Redmond, Washington. It's almost touching how hard they try to make (*snicker*) PCs look better than Macs.

I thought this argument was over. Bill Gates "helped" Apple financially, and did everything short of buying Macintosh out completely, due to legalities. Game Over.

Actually the Japanese version looks rather comfy.

Wasn't this kind of OS Jihad supposed to be over?

That's not the version I know. Bill bought the stock to do what he does best. Make a profit. He sold it later for more than what he paid for.

Microsoft's investment in Apple ($150 million at a time when Apple had, what, a billion in cash?) was more of a vote of confidence than anything. As in, "I'm confident this will make us look better to the DOJ." ;)

It eventually was converted to common stock and Microsoft did indeed sell it for a nice profit.

Of course, it might be a good idea to try both before deciding.

Those are some nice graphics. And you gotta love the error message, whether you use a Mac or a pc.

I would love to own one of those toilets.

Its about time! Enventhoug it's a little behind the times. The items like the iBrator have been out for years.

I'll pass - I still haven't figured out everything that this one can do yet.
