"Guess what's coming to San Diego in two weeks? If you answered iPhone 4, congratulations for being right but not giving the right answer. Microsoft plans to open a new retail store on the same day (its second in California)."
It's not so much that they are opening a Microsoft Store on the same day as the launch of the iPhone 4, it's that they are opening the store next door to an Apple Store. Rather odd timing, perhaps they are hoping to get some of the residual interest that will be generated from the iPhone 4 launch and will get a few stragglers wandering in to check out what they have. This might really be good timing from them after all. Maybe Ballmer and Jobs will show up and have a stare down.
