"There’s a weird game of musical stores going on at 89-93 Montague Street. The Blue Rose clothing store, located in the corner store has moved to the middle location next door to make room for what the Brooklyn Eagle reports is a 'three week pre-Mother’s Day program' offered by Microsoft. What that means is MSFT will be promoting its highly 'successful' Windows Vista and Windows Live products and will be showing Moms and their families how 'easy' it is to use these products to upload photos to the web. Family portraits will be taken by 'top photographers' with hair and make up folks on site for 'touch ups'." [Brooklyn Heights Blog]
