Why is it when people talk about there TiVo units they reference it like its a person?
Because tivo is a noun, and nouns are used to identify people as well as things?
And besides, "TiVo" is shorter than "my TiVo unit".
I think the more common use that people are using lately is Tivo as a VERB. For example:
"Make sure you Tivo Letterman tonight"
"I'll be Tivo-ing 24 next week"
"I didn't watch the last CSI, but I've got it Tivo-ed"
Sure you could replace Tivo with "record", but this way people know how you're going to do the recording. I'm sure Tivo will make a dictionary as a new word in the next year or so.
TiVo - 'tE-vO - verb - TiVo-ed, TiVo-ing, TiVo-es - 1. To record a television program with a Tivo or similar digital recording device.
