Gizmodo has come in for quite a bit of criticism on their own blog today with a post Confessions: The Meanest Thing Gizmodo Did at CES where they posted a video of how they caused havoc at CES by switching many TV’s on and off using an IR clicker.
The prank was done and posted in humor however the comments section is filled with quite a few comments – some that see humor it it others that are quite disgusted.
Other sites now are chiming in with their opinion – some claiming that this ‘prank’ could hurt all bloggers attempting to get access to this type of show.
- Joe also shares some thoughts on the introduction of bloggers at CES.
- Valleywag chimes in and points out that Gizmodo attended as press not bloggers (although they are part of Gawker like Gizmodo so you’d expect them to defend it)
- CNET’s Crave also isn’t too impressed (although they’re competitors with Gizmodo so you wouldn’t expect them to be)
What do you think? Humor? Bad Taste? Does it Hurt Bloggers?
