This is yet another example of how the legal system is adapting to the world of cybertechnology.  The framers did not envision this when designing the legal framework of the country, so modern jurists have to combine the intent of the framers with the advancement of technology.  The use of computer based evidence might be exempted from the hearsay rule because it is not gossip or evidence which lacks credibility because of subjective motive.  For example, computer generated searches of topics on the web is not hearsay if the accused has conducted it.  The web search history of a computer can fall outside of the hearsay rule because it is credible.  Electronic correspondence can also fall outside of the hearsay rule because it can depict in a credible manner the state of mind of the accused.  Given the fact that a computer must be ordered, instructed, or designed to produce something, this can be a reason why a computer can be seen as falling outside of the standard understanding of the hearsay rule.
