Nice screens, shame about the dancing

November 17, 2009 by Dave Haynes 

I have not seen the stores in person, but from a distance I really, really like what Microsoft has done with its retail presence. Sure it looks vaguely familiar to Apple’s stores, but big whoop. The wall to wall screens are brilliant.

However, I am now second-guessing whether I’d actually want to step inside a store and be trampled by line-dancing geeks rocking out to Will.I.Am and Fergie. Sheesh.

I’d love to see the look on the guy who walked up to cash to buy his Windows 7 upgrade and got stuck watching this horror show. “Umm, can I, excuse me, can I pay for this … EXCUSE ME!!!”

And check the “Oh please God don’t let my buddies see this” look on the face of some of the staffers.”
