Either Microsoft thinks it's still April 1, or they really are going to open Microsoft Stores right next door to Apple Stores. Gizmodo provides the quote:
And stay tuned, because we're going to have some retail stores opened up that are opened up right next door to Apple stores this fall. Stay tuned, just stay tuned.
Tuned to what, Comedy Central? We've made fun of this before -- and rightly so -- but it seems Microsoft is again entering a business just because Apple or Google are in it. And is that really sound strategy in anything outside a Hollywood parody? (Starring Will Farrel, 'natch).
Sony Style Stores haven't hit the mark yet, and Microsoft Stores selling shrink-wrap Windows 7 with free Songsmith classes...? Sigh. Apple needs competition. Good, focused competition that builds successful core business on top of successful core business.
We don't see Google Stores opening up next door, do we? Microsoft, if you're going to clone something, clone the focus. Please.
