Microsoft: Internet-ready toilet project a hoax
(05-12) 21:14 PDT REDMOND, Wash. (AP) --

Microsoft Corp. said a company news release that it was developing a
portable toilet with Internet access, called an "iLoo," was a hoax
perpetrated by its British division.

The April 30 release, issued by the company's MSN Internet division in
the United Kingdom, said Microsoft was developing a portable toilet with
a wireless keyboard and an extending height-adjustable plasma screen in
front of the seat. The iLoo was to debut at festivals this summer in
Britain.

"This iLoo release came out of the UK office and was not a Microsoft
sanctioned communication and we apologize for any confusion or offense
it may have caused," Microsoft spokeswoman Bridgitt Arnold said late
Monday.

The fake release generated coverage by The Wall Street Journal, The
Associated Press and Reuters.

The Associated Press received confirmation of the project from both
Microsoft Corp.'s Waggener Edstrom public relations firm and
London-based Red Consultancy, which handles such work for the software
giant in England.

In an e-mail sent last week to The Associated Press, Red Consultancy's
Ben Philipson wrote "MSN is really working on building a prototype for
the Summer festivals, perhaps Glastonbury ... This is very much a 'toe
in the water' experiment to gauge interest so we'll have to see how it
goes, although judging from response so far it's really captured
people's imagination!"

Malina Bragg, who helps with MSN's account for Waggener Edstrom, also
verified last week that the project was true.
