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.
