Disappointed that you can't make it to Scottsdale
for the opening of the big Microsoft retail store? Since you've given up on real life in lieu of a completely wired existence anyways, perhaps a more meaningful experience would be to mosey over to the company's online shop and check out all the new PCs and third party software that's been added to the catalog. No longer just the fine purveyors of Office products and "Bill Gates is my homeboy" t-shirts
, this is your newest online destination for Sony netbooks and Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing software -- as well as that operating system you've been longing to get your hands on. One thing they don't have? Manic Panic hair dye. Well, not yet anyways.
