This Friday is when Microsoft begins shipping Windows 8 and starts selling its entry into the modern tablet market known as Microsoft Surface, which was open to pre-order a week ago. You can order online but it will take 1 to 2 weeks to get the device.
Microsoft has a number of temporary pop-up stores in the following locations. Burnaby, British Columbia (Metropolis at Metrotown); Edmonton, Alberta (West Edmonton Mall); Toronto (Eaton Centre); Vancouver, BC (Oakridge Centre).
