Ready for some crappy news? Yi Tien Electronics has made a computer/printer that has a very specific purpose - it prints the latest RSS headlines directly onto your toilet paper! This gadget reads the user's weight when they sit on the toilet seat and then, personalizes the RSS source for that person. The RSStroom Reader makes a lot of sense - most news is crap, anyways.
Implications - In today's fast-paced society, many individuals find themselves seeking relief from their hectic schedules and daily repetitive routines. It is rare for individuals today to be able to take time during their long workdays to use for relaxation, leisure or play. Companies and businesses will benefit by providing busy consumers with products that allow them a brief moment or two of escape during their day.
