Wanna see somebody who jumps for a living?   Check out the Kinect display in Nickelodeon Universe or the Microsoft Store at Mall of America:

Again, dancing or jumping for a living…..ya gotta love America….

Whose winning the battle between Microsoft and Apple at Mall of America?   Looks like a draw so far:

Couple of other fun items before we go:

Mickey and Minnie do a lovely window……

Finally, most of the fall openings have been revealed on MOA South….but there is one more huge surprise…  What is under the black drapes at the new LegoLand????????????

Shareology discovers Dancing at Mall of America! November 9, 2010

Blame in on Microsoft!!  Not only did they open Microsoft Store #6 in Mall of America on Saturday  — but a quick trip around the mall resulted in a discovery in Nickelodeon Universe:  they have a pop up Kinect Store there!   Although to be fair, it looks more like another Nick Universe attraction, and small it ain’t.  

What Shareology knows about gaming fits in the proverbial teacup…but what might have started out as a game is migrating to a do-it-in-your living room, incredibly fun way to exercise for a mere $300 or so….(Kinect is part of the XBox 360…)

Well that’s it from Nickelodeon Universe….if you wanna continue to boogie, y’all gotta get to 162 South Avenue, Mall of America and pick up one of these:

Shareology is out the door:  P P P P P P Poker Face!!!!!

Microsoft Store #6 opens at Mall of America!! November 7, 2010

DECEMBER 13 UPDATE:

Microsoft’s first five stores are at Scottsdale, Arizona, Mission Viejo and San Diego, California, Lone Tree, Colorado and Oakbrook, Illinois.  Store #7 is now open in Bellevue, Washington.

The games have begun!!  On November 6, 2010, Microsoft opened its 6th store in Bloomington, MN at Mall of America.   Store opening was announced for 9 am; by Shareology’s reckoning, the actual doors opened at 9:49 am.  Below is a highly edited vision of Saturday morning:

Check out the guy in line in the black tee-shirt......

yep, that would be an Apple on that tee....

the next door neighbor at MOA? yep, again: Apple....

Shareology's been waiting for this day since June 23...

when she broke news of the new neighbors-to-be in Mall of America 1st floor South…

1st guests in line: guaranteed a spot at Kelly Clarkson!

getting those tickets to an in store autograph signing!

Shareology hung out on the 2nd floor overlooking the Microsoft 1st floor store because the view on 1st floor was a tad obscured.  Guess who else was hangin’ on 2nd?   Besides other photog types, Shareology was joined by three imports from Redmond, Washington!

joined by CIO for Microsoft Stores ....

big checks going to local charities....

the red ribbon is cut, the store is revealed....

Hey, besides product, there are MS staffers, ready to help!!!

OKay, only 4 more pics to go (imagine lots of M-I-C-R-O-S-O-F-T yelling from the cheerleaders in Microsoft colors, and the cheerleaders in white go-go boots, gobs of lines winding around 1st South, the sight of Julio Ojeda-Zapata taking pics for the Pioneer Press, and my fav:  the shark from Underwater World navigating the edge of the crowd.   It was that kinda morning.)

the first gift bags exit the store...

nothing like playing games in front of a biiiiig camera....

Shareology was found out in Nickelodeon Universe, dancing to Poker Face in a pop-up store featuring Kinect for XBox 360…..more on that (yes, and photos..) later this week…. (Smart move, opening a pop-up store in Nickelodeon Universe!!)

Before you head to 162 South Avenue at Mall of America to visit Microsoft and their neighbor across the hall, Apple — let’s take one more look at some folks who had a real great morning:
