We’re serious. This weeks’s Gadget of the Week is simply computers that are owned by people’s fathers. Why? Because of this story:
19-year old Brooklyn resident Rodney Bradford was being held in connection with two robberies and though he pleaded his innocence, there was no one to provide an alibi, until lawyers checked his Facebook profile. On the night of the alleged incident, it was discovered that Bradford had updated his status only moments before the muggings were reported to have taken place. His defense was able to trace the activity back to his father‚Äôs computer, confirming his whereabouts at the time and prompting the charges to be dropped.
Talk about a close call. We know that it’s not high-tech, but sometimes the simple things in life are the most valuable. Just ask Rodney Bradford.
