More competition on the market, better for us.

LOL!! MS is just trolling Apple now.

STiRacer2146d ago

Corporate trolling is awesome.

I'm sorry but do you know how an apostrophe is used sir? ... because it is apparent that you don't, by the looks of your title.

Apparently neither do you. . .
Microsoft Opens New Store Next to Apples' To Infuriate The Fanboys

Apostrophe comes before s only when replacing a word like "it".
Apostrophe comes after s when used to show ownership.

I'm gonna wikipedia it now to make sure, but I am 100% sure that is how I was taught. Way back in 3rd grade.

Speed-Racer2146d ago (Edited 2146d ago )

No it doens't :S

We are talking about a singular store here, making it Apple's Store... with Apple being the entity. If it were "Stores" ... then Apples' Stores would be applicable. Please do check your Wikipedia. :)

Sean Ryno2146d ago

I'm back, man who knew the apostrophe could be so ridiculous? Seriously, wiki that shit, it's insane!

Anyways I was wrong. (I think) But it would be correct if it was like this. . .

The difference is there, no matter how small. (or dumb)

Sean Ryno2146d ago

I conclude that apostrophes are a literature fail.

Speed-Racer2146d ago

LOL well we should at least agree that Open’s and Fanboy's is clearly out of the picture in terms of grammatical correctness.

I think MS should start to open stores all over the world esp the UK. The one good thing about the Apple store is you get to play with all there kit and see what they have to offer and that's part of the reason why Apple has the market lead with iPhone iPod and iPad. If MS opened there stores in the UK they would be able to show off things like wp7 Zune home server cloud devices laptops tablets netbooks and many more thangs they offer. Because that's is MS biggest down fall out side the it world people don't know what MS offers apart from Xbox and the pc.

Techsmith2146d ago

I completely agree, but these things take time. I think eventually they will.

mcstorm2146d ago

I agree that do take abit of time but with the money MS have they should be able to open shops alot quicker than than are doing.
