This is what happens when an Apple store employee tries to sell you a Microsoft Surface

Technically Incorrect: A prankster troupe invades an Apple store, masquerading as employees. What results is instructive.

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.

Let's assume for a moment that everyone who works in an Apple store is a die-hard evangelist for Apple.

Let's also assume that the moon is made from wine sediment.

There must be one or two renegades -- those who are Samsung spies, or those who just need a job.

So a group of wags known as NelkFilmz decided to dress up (vaguely) as Apple store employees and tell customers that Apple products are flimsy flimflam, infinitely inferior to those of Samsung or Microsoft.

One suggests to a customer that MacBook Airs are awful. Indeed, he says, the customer should sell his and go to the nearby Microsoft store to get a Surface.

"iPhone 6? Truth be told, bad choice," says another faker to a customer. Indeed, he continues to say "bad choice" until a real Apple store manager appears to explain that he's a fake.

Some might marvel that the real Apple store employees didn't become heavy-handed with these interlopers.

What's also interesting is that none of the customers seems immediately persuaded to rush out of the store and down to the Microsoft shop.

It's the vapor that Apple pumps into its store, don't you know? The minute you walk in, you're drugged, mesmerized into veneration.
