One of these things is not like the other

I went to the Apple store at Valley Fair today to pick up a new monitor and have some lunch (Genghis Khan's mongolian BBQ in the food court. Almost as good as our normal mongo on El Camino, but they're open for lunch on Sunday). While I was there, I stumbled upon the Dell kiosk. Since I had my iPhone, I decided to snap a picture:



Now, the Apple store is actually under construction right now. They have a temporary store open in a little sliver of space next door to the real store. The temporary store isn't nearly as large or nice as the real store used to be. I can only hope that the new store will be an improvement. Anyway, with all that as a prologue, here's what the Apple store looked like at about the same time as the picture above of the Dell kiosk:



Uh huh. I don't think anyone needs to wonder if it's really true that Apple is gaining market share.

I saw the same exact situation at the Apple Store/Dell Kiosk at the Galleria mall in St. Louis yesterday. Score one for Apple!

I am at the North Lake Mall in Georgia at least once a week. I have never seen anyone doing anything other than a passing look at the Dell Kiosk (they have some nice Sony HDTV monitors). The Apple store downstairs always has at least 10 customers browsing.

Why would you want get a virus. That is just another example of how Windows PC users are less intelligent than Mac users. Sad but true.
