It used to be that the fancy computerized billboards that blare on constantly in New York City’s Time Square were a frequent victim to the fabled Blue Screen of Death pretty regularly, but that was years ago.

These days? They apparently all run on a Mac, as snapped by Instagram user and MTV Geek contributor Alexander Zalben.

    Actually, that is advertising that Apple paid for.

    The program crashed, not the operating system.

    Yeah, what dcj said. Not a bad advert for Apple. Even if it’s an older OS.

    Now, THAT’S a computer monitor. I wonder if they can make a mouse, track pad and keyboard to run it from that distance? Bluetooth 5 with a 1/4 mile radius?

    It’s done on purpose! Look at the other ad on the right…

    looks like an AD from a 3rd party dev to me called “MeMo”.
