>I hear m$ is staffing or starting apple like stores with one stop support, an item that's sorely missed, but whose time I feel might be fleeting. If the ipad becomes a "player pc", that just works, and will see apps like iworks etc. then they may be too little too late. I hope not because good or bad they're part of the playing field.

Since the word "Genius" is taken...what will Microsoft call its Tech Staff at its stores? "Really Smart People?" "Fake Steves?" Their Genius Bar--The "Task Bar"? (Get it? I know...ouch.)

It can be difficult to get an appointment soon with someone at the Genius Bar to have your Mac problem looked at...can you IMAGINE the laundry list these PC customers will have when they visit that store? It'll be like the waiting list for a room at a new casino in Las Vegas (which can take months)!
