Microsoft is to open its own shops, according to this Reuters report, in what is probably safely termed as “doing an Apple”.

David Porter, a former DreamWorks exec, has bee hired to head up the chain.

It’s not known if this is a US-only thing as yet, and Microsoft hasn’t said yet how many stores it’s looking to open, or when, or which products would be available.
