AFT intros iCarta+ iPod dock and bath tissue holder

Atech Flash Technology has introduced the iCarta+ Stereo Dock for iPod with Bath Tissue Holder, a revised version of its 2006 iCarta system. Unlike the prior model, which relied on a power supply and power cable that might not have been convenient in some bathrooms, iCarta+ features a built-in rechargeable battery which provides up to 8 hours of playtime. Like its predecessor, the iCarta+ also offers users a choice of inputs, including a USB port for the first-generation iPod shuffle, a line-in jack, and the integrated iPod dock, and features an integrated toilet paper holder that can be folded in for use as a portable stereo. Currently being offered for $70 in a charming Mother’s Day promotion, the AFT iCarta+ is available now and normally sells for $90.

Seriously, some of these accessory ideas lately are worthy of flushing.

I think this may be the stupidest accessory ever, and I’ve seen some pretty stupid accessories.

I can’t even imagine the scenario I’d want a speakered toilet paper roll holder versus, oh I don’t know, headphones when I’m sitting in the bathroom.

Who in the world sits on the toilet long enough to have their iPod/iPhone charged while they’re taking care of business?

@#4: Somebody has already made an iPod dock/speaker for the shower.

At least it’s portable, you know, for the guy who has to take his tunes everywhere. I wonder if porta-potties have something to attach this thing to?

If you do buy this, just be sure to wash your hands BEFORE retrieving your iPod/iPhone from the TP holder. :P
