New chain of stores may be coming…

Good afternoon, Netizens...

Once again Bob Kirkpatrick seems to have hit the nail on the head, taking full-bore aim at Bill Gates' announcement that Microsoft is considering opening a chain of Microsoft Stores. Ah, yes, the first stores in the history of merchanising whose products require a reboot every week, all without benefit of free technical support.

Ostensibly they will have tons of Microsoft-branded products, other than software, for sale.

Imagine the possibilities! You could be the first male person in Spokane to have a new pair of tighty-whities (boxers are optional) with the ubiquitous Microsoft Logo on its backside, or for the fairer members of the species, a lovely peignoir suitable for lounging at bedtime with a mug shot of Bill Gates prominently-displayed across your attributes.

Are these Microsoft-branded products not insipid enough for your taste?

Perhaps you can think of other ways in which to market Microsoft and make lots of money. Just remember the black and white cows only worked for Gateway for awhile.
