Ahmed Mohamed, a Texas high school student was arrested because of bringing a digital clock (built from a pencil case) to his school. Ahmed was accused of making a fake bomb – however, that wasn’t the actually the case as Ahmed just built a digital clock which the school officials and his teacher interpreted as something dangerous. Thousands of users on Facebook and Twitter supported Ahmed, including Twitter, Reddit, Google, Mark Zuckerberg, and Barack Obama. Now, Microsoft CEO also sent Ahmed a bunch of goodies, including a Surface Pro 3, a Microsoft Band, and much more.
