A funny local thing: Redmond and The Apple Store

It turns out that The Apple Store in Redmond is within sight of an unmarked office building that's a Microsoft campus of some sort. They're both located in Redmond Town Center, which is an open air mall complex, not the actual city center of Redmond. Very interesting. Admittedly, The Apple Store isn't directly facing it and is on a side street, but it's still there. I found out that it was a Microsoft complex by accidentally trying to use their parking garage, finding that you had to have some sort of key fob to get the gates to open, and then circling around and seeing "Microsoft Parking Only" handicapped parking spots. Otherwise, it was completely anonymous and just looked like an unoccupied building that was part of the mall.
