I have no idea what to make of the news that Google are to launch a temporary sort of internet cafe, called Google Space, and consisting of ten Samsung laptops in the public lounge of Terminal One at London's Heathrow airport.
The stand will apparently be staffed by at least two Google employees from 0700 to 1900 every day for the duration of the trial, which will run until 19 December. Google staff will be flown in from around the world to man the station. (and this for 10 laptops!)
For conspiracy theorists..
Although the search specialist claims the project is primarily about helping travellers use their time more productively at the airport, it admitted that Google Space will also act as a physical testing lab for its new applications.
Although the company chose Heathrow for the project, other areas which attract large numbers of people with time on their hands were considered, including train stations and doctors' surgeries. If the pilot proves successful, Google may roll-out Space projects in some other locations.
So what on earth are they up to?
