MacDailyNews reader “Jim – TIV” snapped this photo today at the “Shops at Mission Viejo” mall outside of the Microsoft Store which, Jim reports, was “quite empty… other than the guy sitting in the lounge chair in front of the 3D TV, the rest of the people you see walking around in the store are Microsoft employees.”

A picture is worth a thousand words:

It’s like a mall-wide advertisement for Apple Store Mission Viejo that was, of course, there long before Microsoft opened their copycat outlet.

Jim tells MacDailyNews that at the time he snapped this photo – using his Apple iPhone, naturally – the information screens had been displaying an error message mall-wide for about an hour. We don’t know when or if they’ve yet been fixed.
