I was surprised to see this actually. To turn a TV off here or there, OK..have your fun. But to do this during a vendors presentation? I think it was taken a bit too far.
According to Gizmodo, “they couldn’t help it”. WHAT?
“we pretty much couldn’t help ourselves. We shut off a TV. And then another. And then a wall of TVs. And we just couldn’t stop. (And Panasonic, you’re so lucky that 150-incher didn’t have an active IR port.) It was too much fun, but watching this video, we realize it probably made some people’s jobs harder, and I don’t agree with that (Especially Motorola). We’re sorry.”
To Gizmodo’s credit, at least they posted a public apology. But is that enough?
