The multicolored Windows flag is no more. Windows 8 will do away with the wavy Windows logo that Microsoft has used in one form or another for the last 20 years, and replace it with a logo that’s, well, a window.

I’ve really only known the Windows “Flag” logo, I was 12 when it first came out and I was still a wee little nerdling and hadn’t gotten my first ‘real’ computer yet.

Pinch yourself if this sounds crazy. Amazon, the world’s undisputed online retail champ is said to be considering a move into retail with a pilot store in Seattle that’ll focus primarily on selling the Kindle e-readers and Kindle Fire tablet alongside exclusively published books and e-books.

I would totally shop at an amazon store.  They could even use them as pickup/drop off locations, which I would also use.
