In reference to the rumors of Microsoft opening up retail stores.. I went to my local mall and saw that the Dell computer kiosk in the middle of the mall was gone.. Not like they did many sales there anyway.. I then went to another mall and the Dell kiosk was gone as well.. So now that there are rumors about Microsoft opening up retail locations.. Since Microsoft doesn't sell much hardware they should team up with Dell (which makes crappy computers nowadays) and they should open up retail stores together and sell Microsoft software and 360 etc. and also sell dell computers. Even though i dont like both companies i could see that possibly working out.. the dell and the Microsoft name together in a retail store would attract allot of customers in my opinion.
