One of the interesting new features that Windows 8 will see is the new Microsoft Store. This will be an online storefront that will see the Windows user gain access to apps and other things that will run on the computer. Microsoft will be a distributing place for apps of all sorts and will be set up to give the developers a bigger share of the money made than some app stores.
Microsoft will give the developer 80% of the revenue share apps for sold through the platform. Microsoft says that it worked hard and put a lot of thought into making the store easy to use, flexible, safe, and engaging. It will have a spotlight to highlight some of the most important apps on the store.
The navigation and searching of the store is said to be set up like that of Windows 8 to make it easy for users to navigate. The store should land along with the new version of Windows sometime next year.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
