Had a bit of a shifty around Westbourne Grove yesterday checking out the sales. And I was amused by the gratuitous and largely pointless use of iPads throughout the stores. In Aubin & Wills, I was smugly told that I could order those black velvet shorts "through the iPad" - wow! In Matches, a sales assistant seemed simply to be rocking the iPad as part of a carefully thought out S/S2011 outfit. And, in All Saints (below) the place was practically riddled with the little things. At every turn, Italian tourists were desperately trying to check Facebook, as elder shoppers looked on in awe. Fascinating.
