We’re so sorry we missed this at the VMworld conference: VMblog is reporting that Falconstor, provider of data protection solutions, screwed up a giveaway at their booth to the extent of turning the contestants against them.
The company was giving away a Segway to a person who would wear one of their branded orange t-shirts, if he/she was lucky enough to be the winner of a drawing. Instead, the person that was announced as the winner wasn’t wearing said t-shirt at the time of the call, but was awarded the Segway anyway. The orange shirt-wearing crowd wasn’t pleased with that, so next to shouting bad words to the booth occupants, they also threw their t-shirts back at them.
Lucky for us, it was caught on video.
