Microsoft Following in the footsteps of the likes of Apple and Sony, Microsoft has announced via a press release that it is going to launch a chain of Microsoft-owned and operated retail stores. From the press release it becomes clear that the retail stores are not so much about making huge profits, but more about learning from customers what they want and to spread the Microsoft brand.

They realize now that they can not remain this faceless brand that everyone just happens to have products of because they simply come with every computer and that's it. Microsoft is starting to become an actual, real company now.

Either that or start making their own commercials where Justin Long isn't making them look ridiculous.
