    My local mall has both an Apple Store and a Microsoft Store. Whenever I'm there and happen to go by both (they are on opposite ends of the mall), the Apple Store is always packed and the Microsoft Store is almost empty. The footprint of the stores appears about the same but the most people I've seen in the Microsoft Store is probably a couple dozen including employees and sometimes the Apple Store is almost packed elbow to elbow with people. It would be even more of a contrast if the two stores were located in closer proximity.
    Every single time I go to the mall or anywhere where Microsoft and Apple are in close proximity, it's sad. You can see the look of disparity on the Microsoft employees faces. They get all bored and don't even try to engage customers. Almost like "I know they'll just go to the Apple store anyways, meh".

    Same thing goes for Samsung. They have a huge center display in our big mall here and there's never any traffic. The Apple Store is always packed. Spent an hour just waiting in line last night.

    I went to Best Buy yesterday to get an additional cable for my iPhone. Needed one for my computer at work since I gave mine to a co worker.

    Anyhow.....Samsung had this HUGE dedicated space, totally empty. The iPhone section had four people in queue and three at the cash registers.

    I ended up going to the computer section. No way was I going to wait just for a cable.

    Totally sucks how iPhone buyers just take up all the cash registers and have a queue three and a half months after the devices released.

    Dammed iSheep.

    ......oh wait......

    I think every Best Buy has that Samsung display now. Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen anyone there since it opened 2 years ago. Wonder how much of a fail that's been for them both? Wonder when Best Buy says "ok, that's enough wasted space and time."

    Not only do iSheep take all the cash registers, they take all the money(probably steal it) and only leave enough for the rest of us to barely afford powerful DROIDS with 500 cores and 300 gbs of ram.

    There are people like that. I don't buy everything Apple makes, but I would consider myself a fanboy, although not as radical as I used to be.

    Yeah, I actually ordered a moto x a few days ago. Its a great phone, but honestly I kinda miss the polish of ios and certain apps. So honestly I think I'm gonna return it and just get a iPhone 6 plus. Its boring I know, but I think I'm a little too deep into apple right now.

    Unless they work in a full-out official Microsoft store...in that case it would be different.

    Went to one to buy my recent Lumia. They were definitely bored in there but man that guys face lit up when I told him what I wanted. Looked like I'd been his first sale of the day or something.

    It really is sad. What's even more sad is the Microsoft rule that they must open a retail store at any mall location that has an Apple Store.

    I recently saw an empty space at a local mall that has had an Apple Store since 2010 with the "Microsoft Store coming soon" on it. It just feels pathetic.

    lol. You should've took a picture. You must've been the first sale since the past 2 weeks...

    You've never seen the one in Tyson's? It's at the opposite end from the Apple Store.

    No! Never even knew it was there. Maybe because prior to my Lumia 1520 I hadn't really looked at Windows phones after my HTC Tilt. I generally get my hardware at Best Buy and my software at Amazon.

    The one I go to looks pretty nice actually. It's in an outdoor mall.

    I've never been in it just passed by. Tyson's is my closest mall though so I occasionally have to venture in for clothes for the kids. It looks remarkably similar to the Apple Store with big wooden tables. Just very empty most of the time whereas I've never seen the Apple Store not busy.
