We don't like to have a dig at agencies sending ridiculous press releases out to us -- it's a tough job when a client is pushing you to get coverage for one of its products by any means necessary. Tying in to a current events story is usually a reasonable way of bringing attention to a client looking for exposure, but this is one of the most spurious of correlations between news event and product being pitched that we've seen. The release (and unintentional hilarity) follows below, with bold emphasis our own.

The answer, is to use a free and effective screen-sharing application to control your desktop computer from your smartphone.

Rooney's Chromebook will be gathering dust then.
