Today's a big day in suburban Colorado. Microsoft
I'm here, surveying the event and somewhat lengthy line, which appears to be comprised of as many fans of Disney Channel's Demi Lovato as Microsoft technology. Why? The first 1,000 shoppers get tickets to a Lovato performance on Saturday at the Park Meadows Mall, where Apple and now Microsoft both have retail operations.
For investors, the big question is how Microsoft's store compares. I'll be honest; I don't see a huge difference. Both are clean, open spaces, built to get customers playing with technology. Sony
But that's just my initial read. We won't know what customers think till the cash registers start ringing. I'll be back to report on that tomorrow.
