Vnunet.com reports that in its latest bid of expansionism, Google has opted to help ease the pain of boredom at the world’s busiest international airport, Heathrow. This is undoubtedly heralded among the “bad-luck” travelers of the world who will undoubtedly face delays and cancellations as winter begins to take hold in the Northern Hemisphere and the Holiday Travel season begins to gear up.


Located in the ever crowded Terminal One of London’s Heathrow International Airport, Google space consists of an area featuring 10 top of the line Samsung Laptops dedicated to accessing Google provided services such as Google Mail, Google Earth, Google Local, Google Toolbar, Picasa and Google Mobile. The entire premise for this first Google space is to monitor the popular use of Google’s large offering of services. But one can’t help but wonder if this “focus group” won’t soon explode to encompass the world’s other busiest airports.

This latest project caps a year that has boasted Google’s fast paced expansion and development into various fields. In addition to others, 2005 has seen Google wade into instant messaging with Google Talk, classified ads with Google Base, and Free Web site monitoring with Google Analytics.

If you plan to be in Heathrow, keep in mind that Google Space will be open from 0700 to 1900 until 19 December.
