Microsoft ready to open first brick and mortar store

Quite an interesting weekend with all the Yahoo - MSN announcements going on. I think Microsoft is smart enough to walk away from this deal at this point. They probably will come back once they figured out that Live.com is never going to be a good search engine and Yahoo still loosing business, b/c of their lack of focus. But way more important than all this speculation is the fact that Microsoft is planning to open it's first store in Brooklyn.

Quite funny to see how a lot of companies try to build their brand on top of the Brooklyn borough. Domino's pizza launched a Brooklyn style Pizza (which is not Brooklyn at all), Apple is planning to open a store in trendy Williamsburg and now Microsoft :)

I don't want to comment on a Microsoft store. The Brooklyn paper already did a great job:
