    So I flew into San Diego this morning for a friends wedding, and I got to visit the Microsoft Store there. And I must say, it is pretty awesome. The employees are way more chill than Apple Store employees (IMHO). They are really outgoing. I messed with them first asking if they can service my iPhone, and they joked with me saying that I should throw the phone in the trashcan, and wait for the windows 7 phone. I also asked them for if they could help me hakintosh my laptop, we got a good laugh out of that. The store is really less crowded, and has a way better layout than the Apple store. There's sofas and tables where you can play guitar hero, a big giant touch screen table where you can play a game, and a xbox 360 corner. And there's a whole bunch of touch windows 7 tablets, laptops, and desktops as well. I think Microsoft really did well with the Microsoft Store, and I hope that Chicago gets one soon.

    Anyway here are some pics. Taken with the iPhone and touch.

    It does, doesn't it? But still, the place is pretty awesome.
