Sit or Squat

Every once in awhile, a brand develops a product that is actually useful. Sit or squat is a social networking tool for the toilet users among us, which I'm assuming includes all of us. The mobile application for BlackBerry and iPhone--launched in December with the goal of turning people into restroom reviewers. The service helps you locate restrooms and provides star ratings based on cleanliness. 

We've all walked into a heinous bathroom in our time, so avoiding the stank would be nice. This service may need to be constantly updated, for many a bathroom goes from clean to obscene in one visit. But at least now you know where to go to take a leak after a few too many.  
If you don't have an iphone or a blackberry, there's always Starbucks, but there will be lines.
