A recent survey found that 35% of tablet owners use the device while they're sitting on the toilet. The same people also take their tablets to restaurants (30%), on vacation (60%) and in bed (78%).
Ironically, 80% also said they see tablets as a means to help them achieve an improved work/life balance: 40% use it to stay connected with friends. Hopefully not while they're sitting on the john.
The survey was done by Staples, and I'm not surprised at the results. Based solely on the statistics at hand, I can say with authority that the majority or respondents were married with children. The bathroom is the only place you can get any respite from the kids. And, being married with kids, there's not a lot happening in the bedroom any more, so why not take your tablet to bed?
