After two weeks of enduring endless calls, emails, radio interviews, denials from the thieves, runaround from the police, and numerous late nights, the Sidekick guy finally got a resolution. Tonight, the NYPD picked up Sasha, the girl that either paid for the Sidekick from a cabbie, on the subway, or got it from her mother—their story isn't quite straight yet.

In any case, it's great to see a guy who did the right thing for a friend get the nice conclusion that he deserves, especially since he gave up a week's pay to take care of all this stuff. It wasn't about the money, it was about taking responsibility for what you do. Let's hope this encourages more people to do the right thing in the future.


It's also a coincidence that the end comes on the day the Sidekick 3 is released. Maybe T-Mobile will give him and his friend two free ones?
