Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Americans need never worry about taking a leak again - thanks to the Internet.

Wireless Web portal Yada Yada today launched its "Bathroom finder", which helps users locate their nearest loo and tell them if it's fit to visit.

The service is available in 12 US cities, including New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles and Washington. And the company is in cahoots with fellow wireless portal Rovenet and toilet evaluators besttoilets.com to offer the directory through PDAs - or in its words: "Find the key to every public bathroom is in the palm of your hand!"

"Looking for a bathroom in most US cities can be a leg-crossing experience. The public toilets aren't fit for humans, and if you try to duck into a nice restaurant for a quick pit stop, you will inevitably encounter a 'Restrooms for patrons only' sign," states the press release.

"By selecting 'Toilets' from YadaYada's Wireless Web Guide, users who have found themselves in an "urgent" situation are given instant access to a directory of public restrooms that features both addresses and in-depth reviews of each facility, based on accessibility, cleanliness and added amenities."

More information on this handy life accessory can be found at the yadayada.com Website. Alternatively, you could just use good old fashioned conversation and ask a passer-by. ®
