Gizmodo's CES Stunt

One of the biggest stories coming out of the just-concluded Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is Gizmodo's infamous stunt. Gizmodo is one of the most popular gadget blogs where the bloggers, in their own words, claim to be "So much in love with shiny new toys, it's unnatural." However at CES they did nothing but demonstrate their immaturity.

At the 2008 CES, Gizmodo reporters went about using the TV-B-Gone infrared remote to turn off exhibitors' TVs displays. They had the gall to do this even during a presentation by Motorola flustering the Motorola presenter and perplexing the technicians. The smug jackasses then posted a video showing off these juvenile antics as if they had done something great.

Despite the widespread condemnation of their vandalism, they continue to defend themselves, calling the whole thing a harmless prank. I bet none of these morons ever did a presentation in public showing off cool products. The whole episode has left me disgusted with Gizmodo. I won't be reading their blog anymore and I hope they never get invited to another gadget show ever again.

That sounds like pretty juvenile behavior on their part. What were they thinking?
