High-tech toilet

The Lourve or the loo-rve? Here's someone's idea of commode art for the gadget geek. Roto-Rooter, an online sweepstakes site by the way, is offering as its winning pot (pun fully intended) what it has the, ahem, cheek to name the Pimped Out John. If anything, this will go down in the anals(?), oh all right, annals of cubicle crap as your ultimate kiasu toilet for the techie. For the record, it comes fully loaded with a Philips 20-inch LCD TV, Star Wars DVD, Xbox 360, Philips DVD player, Gateway EMachine laptop with robot arm, iPod with docking station equipped with a toilet paper dispenser, TiVo, stocked Avanti refrigerator with beer tap, magazine rack and subscriptions to Sports Illustrated, ESPN and GQ, bike pedal exerciser, cup warmer/cooler, and Roto-Rooter emergency service button. Paying lid service? Butt seriously, word to the wise. Keep it all nice and dry before merrily hitting that power switch while on the hot seat. Otherwise, you could be bowled over in a very different way.

Nokia N800

The good: Integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity; outstanding browser; built-in Webcam; sleek design; gorgeous screen; improved performance; multifunctional.
The bad: Video playback was subpar; no PC synchronization; relies solely on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for connectivity.
The bottom line: Though it won't appeal to the masses quite yet, the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet is a nice, portable device for on-the-go Web browsing, and it has some worthy upgrades.
