The mind boggles – yet more toilet information. Which part of the operation is vacuum controlled and which is broadband enabled I wonder??

If you need a little relief at Glastonbury, MSN are kindly providing an internet enabled loo. So does anyone want the security guard’s job of loitering outside?

The iLoo will be mobile and is part of MSN?s mission to allow instant logging on ?anytime and any place?. They’ve even been thoughtful enough to ensure you can use it for background music with a six channel surround sound speaker system under the sink unit.

In time for the summer festival season, MSN is in the process of converting a portable loo to create a unique experience for surfers looking for an alternative to the bog-standard festival loo experience. Users will be able to sit down, undock a wireless keyboard and conveniently access the first ever WWW.C.

A plasma screen will be located directly in front of them which can be adjusted to a desired height level. MSN is also in talks with toilet paper manufacturers to produce special web paper for those in need of URL inspiration.

Tracy Blacher, Marketing Manager at MSN said: ?The internet?s so much a part of everyday life now that surfing on the loo was the next natural step. People used to reach for a book or mag when they were on the loo but now they?ll be logging on! It?s exciting to think that the smallest room can now be the gateway to the massive virtual world.?

Cutting edge technology is central to MSN?s plans for the iLoo. The world?s first www.c will be broadband enabled using the most up to date wi-fi technology, meaning no unsightly telephone wires. Users will simply be able to sit down, power up, and start emailing, shopping or searching for information.

Tracy Blacher explains: ??The MSN iLoo is not a bog standard affair. We are looking at vacuum powered options and the very latest broadband enabled technology to ensure the best loo-surfing experience.?
