As smartphones get more and more popular, using them while you're in the bathroom is getting more and more popular too.  A new study found that:

  • 75% of Americans now take their phones with them to the toilet 
  • 24% of people say they refuse to go to the bathroom without their phone.
  •  10% of people have made an online purchase on the toilet.

I think that refusing to go the the bathroom without a phone is a bit extreme but I have to admit that I have doubled back to go get my phone in the other room before hitting the toilet.

Any by the way... I still think that TALKING on the phone in a public restroom is a bad idea.
