Google is further venturing onto Apple's turf with a series of ingenious-looking mall stores. Opened for the holiday season, the igloo-shaped pop-up shops are named "Winter Wonderlabs." Taking a page from their competitor, the pop ups are bright white and filled with gadgets to be played with such as the Nexus 7 phone and the Chromebook.

Google partnered with Westfield Malls on the stores, and has opened Wonderlabs in New York, D.C., Chicago, LA, New Jersey and Sacramento.
