For those of you who haven’t heard, Gizmodo did a real weird and stupid prank at CES this week. During press conferences and meetings, staff from Gizmodo went around with there TV B Gone and were turning off all the TVs they were using for their presentations.
That is so not cool. These are companies who are trying to make an impression of their new products or product line so they can make a living. To go around turning off the TVs so you can laugh about it is just sick.
Gizmodo is going to be lucky not to be sued by one of these companies.
CES issued a statement on what they are doing today. Unless something happens to Gizmodo and Gawker Media, then the punishment is too light.
If you are reading this blog post, you should not read or support Gizmodo or Gawker media and any future tech conference should ban them from attending, starting with Macworld next week.
I think Loren Feldman from 1938 Media summed it up real well in a blog post, Gizmodo Guys are Real Dopes.
