Microsoft sure does seem to like the retail business. Since changing directions from a software provider to a devices and services company, Redmond has increased its focus on opening more and more Microsoft Stores across the United States.

Bummer! It was supposed to be low-key, but now it is no-key. All thanks to the severe weather. Yes, I am talking about the modest Surface Pro launch event Microsoft had planned in New York City.
