Snarky Gizmodo Post Gets Slammed in Comments

If you’re not familiar with Gizmodo, you should be — it’s one of the few tech trend sites that are always worth a visit. Except perhaps for today, when an off-target post sneered at a perfectly reasonable piece of assistive technology. But check out the comments!

Sidenote: has anyone else detected a whiff of vilification in some references to people who use mobility scooters appearing at Tea Party events? Politics aside, unless you know the individuals involved, it may not be fair to characterize them as ‘obese’ or ‘hypocritical’ about Medicare.
