Supersize my apathy

I had a little time to kill today at Heathrow Terminal 1, which, like the rest of BAA's portfolio of torture-chambers-posing-as-airports, is actually a gigantic shopping mall where planes happen to take off and land. Just one minute walk from the T-Mobile hotspot (tended by, not one, but two, attractive young women in magenta skirts, who swore up and down that several people a day pay up for access) was the gigantic Vodafone sales and display area. Lots of David Beckham and flashy video clips, but no one looking to buy, as far as I could see. The largest number of people I saw anywhere near the stand was a group of elderly Japanese tourists who were using it as a gathering point.
