I'm always amused by the things that are offered to "make things easier" in the bathroom. And I'm not talking about items to "make things move along in the bathroom," I'm talking about gadgets and accessories.

For instance, back in the 80's I remember laughing about an employer who had a phone installed next to his toilet and also had a TV in the bathroom.  Fast forward 25 years and technology has made that phone and TV (and lots of other things) fit in your pocket. I'll admit my iPhone goes with me everywhere.

And then there's this...


From the Hammacher Schlemmer website:

This is the bathroom stand that replaces a traditional basket of magazines by accommodating both an iPad and a roll of toilet paper. Ideal for browsing one's digital reading materials while indisposed, it places an iPad 32" from the floor on top of a flexible 10" gooseneck that provides optimal positioning for reading in either portrait or landscape mode. Made from sturdy chromed steel with a sturdy base that will not slide, the stand reliably secures an iPad at three points, providing access to all controls. The paper roll tube snaps/unsnaps easily for replenishment. Fits iPad 2 and later. 32" H x 8" Diam. (7 1/4 lbs.)
