Doesn’t This Signify Google Running Way
As is way way way.
It’s just an experiment for now. A spokesperson told the Standard “It’s something Google is going to play with and see where it leads.”
But this is exactly how Microsoft got into the retail game a few years ago: by creating “Microsoft stores” within big outlets like Circuit City, Best Buy, and — yes — PC World in 2008. It learned what it needed to know.
A few months later, Microsoft opened its prototype Retail Experience Center to journalists. In February 2009, Microsoft announced it would open its own line of stores. Now, it’s approaching a dozen. It plans to build 75 of them by 2014.
Google doesn’t have enough products to sell to justify its own line of retail stores. Yet. But by the time it does, look for a gleaming chain of Google Stores to sell whatever it comes up with.
Good thing Google launched, then began fine tuning, then pushed forward, and finally emerged peerless in the realm of computing-experience, with a myriad of retail outlets/technical-support emeanation points ready to prove its lion-share worthy point….
Wait wait wait. Wait wait wait wait wait.
