Mall Musings 1

Yesterday Peanut and I were shopping in the mall. As I passed the court in front of Macy’s I noticed that the Comcast Wi-Fi lounge was gone.

During the holiday season, this little courtyard was set up with free Wi-Fi connections and a high definition television. It was a welcoming little spot to crash for a few moments while shopping in the mall. Though I personally never spent any time there, it was always occupied when I passed by. Often, on Sundays, I would see guys watching football games there.

How good is that!

Now it’s gone. That’s too bad too. This little marketing effort was actually starting to make me think better about Comcast after years of bashing them for their abysmal customer service.
