"Guru" Economics

So, the big news last week is that Microsoft tentatively plans to open up it’s own retail establishments. Early concepts of this store seem to be lifted directly from the traditional Apple Stores – from layout to the “Answer Bar”, MS’s attempt to replicate the Genius Bar.

Only the MS “Gurus” won’t provide technical support… I wonder why?

    They simply have no class.

    That is mainly because once you are good enough to troubleshoot any type of issues on all Microsoft products, you can get a way much better job other than working in a store

    Probably because the store representatives are all Microsoft Certified Solitaire Experts, and *maybe* they’ve got an A+ cert for padding.

    This doesn’t mean that they actually learned anything while buyin-er, earning those certifications.

    that’s because, they, along with the rest of the human race, have no clue about Vista either. LOL

    I was in an Apple store in Pittsburgh last year, and not only could they not answer my question about XCode, but didn’t even know what it was.

    They didn’t know about XCode? Wow, that is bad for a Mac Genius. What was your question, anyway?

Tell me what you think!
