The official Microsoft Twitter account tweeted on Friday about the first “image” of Microsoft retail stores in Scottsdale and Mission Viejo. The twitpic has a number of comments asking when one is coming to the UK. I have the same question 🙂
Actually I’ve been thinking about this over the last few weeks – about maybe trying to find a role in the retail side. About 5 years ago I wrote an internal memo about why it’d make sense to have a retail store and I still have the same passion for the topic. I’m not sure what I’d do or even if they have jobs but I could sort of see myself in retail, helping to get the word out about Microsoft products.
I dunno….maybe it’s a crazy idea. We’ll see….meantime, I like the way Bing is the entry point to the store on this hoarding. Subtle.
