Advertisements I tried to buy a HD TIVO yesterday at BestBuy and BestBuy refused to sell me one. During checkout the women ringing me up asked for my name, number address... i asked her why she needed it and she informed me that Tivo requires it. WTF? I was paying cash so why do they need my information? the manager was called over to the register and he also demanded my contact information. I told him i was paying cash and he told me it doesn't matter. He informed me that this was TIVO'S policy and that his hands were tied. When i refused to give him my information he took the HD TIVO and said that i could not purchase it and walked off!! WTF? My wife and I walked out of the store stunned. We drove over to the local circuit city and bought one without any questions asked. So what the hell is going on? Is this a TIVO issue or a Bestbuy issue? Everytime i go into bestbuy it seems that i walk out either angry or stunned these days. I really can not stand having my purchased bagged items checked when i leave the store. I find it to be an invasion of my privacy but that is whole different story.
