TwinCities.com: Microsoft to do direct battle with Apple at Mall of America

A Microsoft retail store is coming to the Mall of America and — get this — it’s directly across from one of Apple’s famed retail stores.

Microsoft is a notorious imitator of all things Apple, and it’s doing it again by opening copycat stores across the country (four are open so far). The Mall of America store, with 8,600 total square feet and 5,200 public square feet, opens Nov. 6.

Ah Microsoft, desperate times call for desperate measures. I understand.

But do YOU understand where most of your revenue comes from?

*spoiler – it’s not from consumer stuff.
