Microsoft Store? Really?

5 Jul

Apart from owning an iPhone, I am pro-Microsoft. I have always used a PC and while it has its flaws (viruses, Windows Vista, etc.), it has done wonders for me. But I’m not sure if Microsoft will do well on this venture.

Here I am with a friend killing time before watching Toy Story 3 at Fashion Valley in San Diego a couple of nights ago, when I see this glitzy, wood-floored store that just opened. Looks nice–it has seemingly friendly staff and some awesome computers. Looks like one of those Apple Stores. It isn’t. It’s the aptly-titled Microsoft Store, and San Diego is one of four locations in the country (it just opened less than two weeks ago). The problem is it looks like a wannabe Apple Store. Seriously? You need to copy nearly all the Apple Store’s characteristics in order to compete with them? C’mon.

    I heard the Apple Store in Mission Viejo closed down for renovations to compete with Microsoft store because the Microsoft has a lounge.

    These have been in development for months. But one has to wonder…what specific Microsoft products are they gonna sell? I mean, they’ve got Office, Windows…

    And that’s about all I can think of. Apple at least has all their shiny products.

    That said, I am a self-proclaimed Windows fan-boy and despise anything that comes out of Steve Jobs’ mouth.
