Why I Like Best Buy

A Denver, Colorado woman purchased a new computer from Circuit City. While making the purchase, she asked if store technicians could transfer the contents of her old computer's hard drive. They did, but they also transferred them to one of the store's floor model computers. That computer was sold to another customer, who wound up with all of the woman's personal info, including banking data, personal writings, etc. Circuit City claims no responsibility, saying customers have no expectation to privacy when they bring their computer into the store. They'll hash it out in court later this month.
