Gizmodo can shut down LCDs at CES? BANNED


The editor of popular gadget website Gizmodo was banned from CES and Gawker Media, company behind that site, is most likely getting sued by CES organizers pretty soon. Reason? Gizmodo?s prank: shutting down tens and hundreds of TV, LCDs and plasma screens by a remote controller known as TV-B-Gone.
In reaction to the blog's prank, the Consumer Electronics Association, sent me this statement:
We have been informed of inappropriate behavior on the show floor by a credentialed media attendee from the Web site Gizmodo, owned by Gawker Media. Specifically, the Gizmodo staffer interfered with the exhibitor booth operations of numerous companies, including disrupting at least one press event. The Gizmodo staffer violated the terms of CES media credentials and caused harm to CES exhibitors. This Gizmodo staffer has been identified and will be barred from attending any future CES events. Additional sanctions against Gizmodo and Gawker Media are under discussion.
They published a somehow funny video at their blog, but interrupting many presentations, press events and other important booth shows of many recognized brands wasn?t that great, CES is visited mostly by real businessmen and such behaviour seems unacceptable.
