Microsoft Unveils Long-Awaited eToilet

LAS VEGAS (CAP) - Consumers will finally get a chance to own an eToilet, Microsoft's latest technical innovation that posts pictures to Instagram, surfs the web, and monitors personal hygiene. The device will retail for between $499 and $599 and should be available as early as next month.

"Americans spend an average of two weeks per year in the bathroom," Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer told a group of IT professionals during an invitation-only party. "And as part of Microsoft's efforts to continue to make inroads in the home, we fully plan to capitalize on that time."

The eToilet is not unlike a regular toilet in its basic functions, but includes a 21-inch flat-screen monitor built into the toilet lid itself that swings out on a swivel arm when in use. Many of its functions are activated by touch, and the eToilet contains a proximity sensor that will protect the screen from spray during use or flushing.

Steve Ballmer talks about how exciting it is to go to the bathroom now.

Additionally, the eToilet's composition gauge will offer web-based dietary recommendations and guidelines based on the physical makeup of the material that is input into the device, and it has a delay mechanism to prevent flushing while someone is in the shower. However, arguably the most intriguing feature of the eToilet is the integration of Microsoft's patented eLoo technology that allows for the activation of remote call features.

"No longer will you need to watch the water climb to dangerous levels just to determine if you have a clog," said Gates. "The eToilet will detect that clog long before it's visible and will have it cleared before you even finish washing your hands."

The eToilet also features a developer API which allows for customization ranging from blue tooth access for over/under toilet paper dispenser determination to a series of mobile apps that provide remote control of all eToilet functions.

"The features on this thing are unbelievable," said John Biggs of CrunchGear.com. "Not only will its thermostat warm the seat when necessary, but it also puts the seat down when I forget. It's a marriage-saver!"

The eToilet has received a stamp of approval from the National Association for Continence, who said they think it will also revolutionize chatrooms and instant messaging.

    Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen has released the long-awaited sequel to Flappy Bird with the latest killer app for social media, Flappy Gums. "People like to talk about theirself and my new app give them point for every self-serving comment they make," Nguyen said. "Double point for posting selfie!" «» NASA is backpedaling today, saying the planet they believed they discovered revolving around a distant sun was actually just a plane going overhead. "We were excited because we thought we even found inhabitants," said one astronomer. "Looking back, it did seem odd that the planet's name was tattooed across itself." «» Entrepreneur Richard Branson is assembling a team of adventurers whose mission will be to rebuild the now defunct Comet Ison. "Once we have all our supplies - ice chunks, dirt particles, space debris - we'll launch our rocket toward the comet and rebuild it in mid-flight," said Branson. "Ison will live on!" «» Two cosmonauts who carried the Russian Olympic torch on a spacewalk to promote the upcoming Winter Games accidentally dropped the torch and could do nothing but watch as it floated away. Lamented one official, "We told them to try string around wrist like child with balloon, but do they listen?" «» Researchers at ITT Technical Institute have created a state of the art ironing board that doesn't squeal like fingernails on a chalk board when opened. Next they're working on a series of ironing board covers featuring sports and bikini models to try to entice men to actually do the ironing. «» Apple has launched its own vessel iSkiff into San Francisco Bay in order to compete with Google Barge. "We have no idea what Google's doing out there, but we're going to get out there so we can do it, too," said CEO Tim Cook. "Except, you know, do it better." «» BlackBerry users concerned about the company's future since its sale to Fairfax are being allowed to exchange their smartphones for other items of equal value. The buyback program offers up packs of gum, costume jewelry and other trinkets for the devices, which most agree is more than a fair trade. «» Google is planning to bring oat bran, flaxseed and other whole grains to 34 cities as part of its burgeoning Google Fiber project.
