Gizmodo prank Update Gizmodo staffer now banned

I must be living under a rock since I didn't see all this talk about Gizmodo's prank sooner. Well apparently CES official's have now responded with a ban of the person who did it.

Here is the official response

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.
