"If only we had a place to put our tablet computers, all our potty training hassles would be solved," said absolutely no one ever in the history of pooping and peeing.
Until this year at CES, when CTA Digital unveiled the iPotty, a plastic toilet with a built-in iPad stand.
Now I understand the imperatives for new products and the difficulties of attracting media attention that those whose business is video game and tablet accessories must face. And on a social media and/or booth traffic basis alone, the iPotty has probably already generated a positive ROI for the firm.
But no. No. No. No. This is how it's been for thousands of years:
FIRST learn how to go to the bathroom by yourself,
THEN learn how to dry out the iPhone you've dropped in the toilet.
You know I only link to this because DT gets a small kickback from all your Amazon purchases, not because I think you should buy an iPotty, because, seriously, you should not, not even as a baby shower prank: CTA Digital 2-in-1 iPotty with Activity Seat for iPad, $39.99 for pre-order [amazon]

SPOILER ALERT UPDATE: Alright, I watched the trailer for season 2 of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror, and I do not see any episodes about iPottys. So maybe there is hope after all.
