My readers in my last post will have seen my inner contempt for Gizmodo, a technology "Journalist" website.
Here's my problem with them. They're complete dicks.
Gizmodo has done a lot of things that have angered many a people.
In 2008, Gizmodo used a TV-B-Gone, a universal remote designed to shut off any television on a certain Infrared wavelength during presentations at the Consumer Electronics show. Essentally ruining everyone's presentation. Gizmodo was banned from the CES for life following this event.
Almost everyone can remember the iPhone 4 debacle. In which an apple employee had an iPhone 4 prototype stolen from him at a bar, the theif sold the prototype to Gizmodo, who promptly disasembled it, and posted it on their website. A apple promptly sued Gizmodo for damages and were charged with theft, which as a device valued at 500 dollars, is considered a felony. The case is still on-going.
Before that. In 2007, Gizmodo perchased a Halo 3 Legendary edition. And threw it off a balcony in order to scorn the hardcore Halo fans. Claming that "Master Chief died at the end." something that wasn't true.
In any case. Gizmodo are douchebags. Don't support them.
