These fancy potties will likely be embraced by germaphobes looking to minimize their physical interaction with the porcelain throne. They also have obvious geek appeal and will give Android users bragging rights over their iPhone-wielding counterparts. "Oh yeah, but can your iPhone flush a toilet?"The Satis toilets open up a wide world of potential pranks. Got a buddy in the bathroom? Trigger the bidet at an inopportune time. Have impressionable friends? Convince them you have a haunted toilet that flushes itself. Bathroom time will never be the same again.
(Via Geek.com), Praying to the porcelain god is about to get a lot more hands-off with a new line of Bluetooth-enabled toilets controlled by an Android app, Japan already has the market cornered on fancy toilets, but there's always room for more potty innovations, A new line of toilets from Lixil her and her iphone case will soon turn smartphones into commode controllers, The Satis toilets are set for release in early 2013, Through the magic of Bluetooth and an accompanying Android app, users will have minute control over these high-tech privies..
All you do ask for directions like you normally would, but tack on "via transit." So, for example, to find the nearest Starbucks, you'd say, "Take me to the nearest Starbucks via transit."What happens next is that Siri pulls up a list of any installed "routing apps" -- including Google Maps, which, as you probably know, recently returned to the iPhone. (You'll also see a list of options available from the App Store.) From there you tap Route, and presto: you've got directions via Google Maps. This is perhaps better shown than explained, so check out JailbreakNation's quick video.
Granted, this isn't perfect, There's still that intermediate step of the Routing Apps list and having to tap Route, So it's not a fully voice-powered way to access Google Maps, On the other hand, there's no jailbreak required (as with replacing Siri with Google's her and her iphone case Voice Search), and you get the satisfaction of bypassing Apple's limitations on what Siri can and cannot do, What do you think of this clever little hack? Will you use it? Or do you think critics have been too hard on Apple Maps, and that for the most part it works just fine, thank you? Let's hear from you in the comments..
Tired of Apple Maps sending you on wild goose chases? Tell Siri you'd rather get directions from Google Maps -- no jailbreaking required. Here's how.

As discovered by JailbreakNation, there's a simple way to trick Siri into using Google Maps for directions. Sort of. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic.
