Japan's hi-tech toilets

The Telegraph has an awesome profile/history of the Japanese hi-tech toilet phenomena. It includes the history of their rise to prominence (including some info about early advertising), the competition between Toto and Inax and a bit about why the toilet's have never made a splash (sorry) in the US. Interesting fact from the article (which I quickly added to Holy Crap! Facts): "According to census figures, there are more Japanese households with Washlets than there are with computers."
