MICROSOFT AT THE MALL... Microsoft is coming to town ... the store, that is. The new Microsoft Store is gearing up for an April 19 opening at Stanford Shopping Center, a Microsoft spokesman said earlier this week. Stretching out 6,369 square feet, the store will be next to Nine West (near Bloomingdale's) with an array of products, including Windows 7 PCs, Windows Phones and Kinect for Xbox 360. Free tech trainings will be offered, and customers who are the creative type will be able to design lids and skins for laptops, phones and Xboxes. Interestingly, just on the other side of Nine West is the Apple Store.
