I'd like like to see someone file a lawsuit against Apple for that bit of false advertising.

I do think it would be a somewhat "different" experience to work at Microsoft's "Genius Bar". Would the Microsoft expert get the same adoration and adulation? I think not. The poor sap would probably become a perennial whipping-boy for all the crackpots, conspiracy theorists and Apple/Linux fanboys. I can see it now -- the poor sap trying to do his job while the peanut gallery hoots and heckles about "Bill Gates" this and evil-empire that and just how much better the customer's life would be if he'd convert to Apple's "One True Religion" or Linux' "Windows is Bloated Spagetti Code" cults.

What would I like to see at the Microsoft store? An expert bar, staffed with well-paid highly competent professionals, in a relaxing productive environment.

With mace and water cannons to drive off the nuts...
