TECHONOLOGY NEWS: Microsoft Gives Plenty Gifts to 14Yr-Old Clock Inventor

The 14-year-old Sudanese-American Muslim who was arrested because a clock he built was mistaken for a bomb had lots of tech goodies delivered to him by Microsoft. The 14-year-old was arrested this past Monday at his Irving, Texas high school after bringing a homemade clock into class to show his teacher at MacArthur High School. He was then questioned by police and taken into custody for building what the police call a “hoax bomb.”

Mohamed was eventually released after police did not file charges. However, that was certainly not the end of it, as the story went viral across the Internet. Many supported Mohamed’s inventive curiosity and President Obama even invited the teen to visit the White House.
Mohamed was hailed as a hero, with other tech leaders like Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Box CEO Aaron Levie inviting him to visit their Silicon Valley offices.
Now, Microsoft is showing Mohamed some love. Here’s a tweet from Alia Salem, executive director of the Dallas Council on American-Islamic Relations, who has joined Mohamed during TV interviews throughout the past week.
A Surface Pro 3, a Microsoft Band, a 3D printer, an Office 365 subscription, and much more. Not bad, Ahmed

I was angry when I saw the story during the week. The prejudice shown by the teacher annoyed me. If his name was Brian and he wasn't Muslim, he doesn't get arrested. This world is crazy

jesse, lots of innocent people had been mistaken and punished unfairly, that's why Jungle Justice should be preached against in every part of the world. MAN WAS NOT MADE FOR LAW, LAW WAS MADE FOR MAN

I still don't like the prejudice. Its selective and that's not good. There are more dangerous things to worry about
