Microsoft Opening Shop In New York?

The Seattle Times is speculating that Bill Gates might be opening shop in New York to promote the upcoming Xbox 360. A retail store would dovetail with Microsoft's recent efforts to raise its profile in New York, an area that generates more than $1 billion a year in business-software sales for the company. New York is also home to the media giants Microsoft is courting with its software for distributing and protecting music, movies, games and television. Possible location might be smack in the middle of Times Square.
