EXCLUSIVE: Apple Store Sets Secret Service on Spy Camera Artist [Mashable]

A sign-of-the-times sequence of events; also interesting to learn that Apple stores wipe their showroom floor devices every night

On three days in June, McDonald’s program documented people staring at computers in Apple stores. Since the stores wiped their computers every night, he had to go back in and reinstall the program each day he took photos. He uploaded a collection of the photos to a Tumblr blog, and last Sunday he set up “an exhibition” at the Apple stores. During the unauthorized event at the Apple stores on West 14th Street and in Soho, when people looked at an Apple store machine, they saw a picture of themselves. Then they saw photos of other people staring at computers. Amazingly, nobody made a fuss.

My favorite from the blog referenced above:
