I am sorry but I don't know what loser besides Ballmer and Gates would have their birthday party at the M$ store.

• Their take on the Genius Bar is the Answers Bar (or Guru Bar or Windows Bar, depending on which slide you look at, showing it's slightly up in the air, though we prefer Answers Bar since its sounds like slightly less like a Genius Bar ripoff)
• Apple Store-style table layouts
• Some of the stores they profiled for ideas are Nike, Nokia, Sony, Apple and AT&T
• They're already planning out huge demos and events around Project Natal and their secret mobile project Pink
• A fancy Microsoft shopping bag
• You can pay to have your birthday party at the Microsoft Store

Sounds like they scoped out McDonald's too

Maybe it is really the Condiment Bar ?

There used to be a Microsoft Store at the Metreon in San Francisco a few years back. Wonder what that was about?

Just like McDonald's birthday parties there will be males who have never kissed a girl.

I can't wait to see them tooling around in VW Bugs, rescuing hapless Winblows users.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Nothing much. I think they mostly sold coffee mugs and Post-It Notes emblazoned with Microsoft branding. Naturally, the store didn't last very long...

I think their idea of having "Guru Bars" is kind of dangerous one for them. Either they're going to be totally slammed all the time to the point of extreme frustration, or they're going to try to monetize it and really upset people. Their "Gurus" will have to know a lot more third party stuff than the Apple Geniuses do.

I remember buying a bag or something out of there and thinking it didn't seem to have much to do with Microsoft. Microsoft thinks they grew a pair.
