IN PICTURES: Microsoft Sydney flagship store opening - all the colour and action (+46 photos)
Microsoft opened its new flagship store in Sydney, the first outside of North America, with some pomp and circumstance, to a big crowd of several thousand - some of whom had been queueing since 6.15pm the night before. There was caps and water for virtually everybody, major prizes from the Microsoft range, and the first 750 through the door got two complimentary tickets to an exclusive Jessie J concert at the State Theatre. Microsoft executives from the US, civic and state government leaders, joined MIcrosoft Australia MD, Pip Marlow, and Sydney store manager, Nick Wells, in celebrating the opening of the super store.
