    They had 4 at 1500 today :) The widget was working correctly showing they had stock, but didn't allow me to order online for in store pickup (fortunately the boss was out, so I escaped work at 1:30 ;))

    Tell them that they had some - the first dude tried to tell me that the S2DT was the newest Tivo they had, I had to educate him....

    I went into the BestBuy in Bellevue, WA, and they didn't have any. He looked it up in the computer, and it said they have 3 "in transit." He said that usually means a week or a week and a half (but I don't know how accurate that is). He showed me the screen with the other local stores, and none of them were showing stock either (they all had a few "in transit").

    He claimed that Seattle is the fifth market to get things, so we're behind a lot of other places. I don't know if that's really true, but clearly they don't have any right now. Oh well.

    I just checked the stores in my "area", about 100 mile radius, they all show in stock after I add to the basket. All 4 of them, let me select pick-up at store. I guess they feel people in FL wanted it faster than other area's.
    I'm going to Destin tomorrow and will stop by the store to see what a $800 overpriced Tivo looks like up close, I need a new component video cable set anyway.

    The S3 comes with both component and HDMI cables according to the megazone FAQ I believe.

    Fry's Electronics in north Phoenix had 6 on the shelf when I went in to look after work tonight (around two hours ago). I bought one so there are now 5 left there also (I'm too impatient to wait for an online order, it's all about the instant gratification).

    I am guessing since Fry's distributes everything to both stores in the Phoenix area from the one in Tempe by AZ Mills Mall that they should also have some in stock.

    They are on the last isle of the store back by the TVs where all of the DVD players and VCRs are. Now to get a hold of Cox here and schedule some poorly trained monkey to come out and install cards that I could quite easily do myself for 35$...
