Tablets become popular bathroom material

Battle of the john
Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, the humble newspaper, tablets have become quite popular with users who like to read up on stuff while in the bathroom.

Staples Advantage’s latest survey claims that 35 percent tablet owners use them in the bathroom, whereas 78 percent tend to use them while lying in bed. Some 30 percent apparently use them at restaurants.

The survey says that 60 percent users claim that tablets boost their productivity, whereas 33 percent review and edit documents with their tablets. As much as 75 percent of tablet owners check corporate mails on their pets.

Well the "overlap" better be soap, or else it's emergency room :D

I would like to see the person using a tablet to swat a fly, there is just some things newspapers are better suited to.
