Very likely random.

Home burglaries have rapidly risen in Palo Alto.

Seems like reports are almost daily now.

So what do you think would be appropriate, the death penalty? Fire the entire police department? After all, it was Steve's house.

Is their son a piece of garbage for burglarizing a home or because it was Steve's home?

Just want to see where your moral outrage "line" is.

That's really too bad. As with any family who has been through this, I do feel for them.

I daresay that interesting information relating to Steve Jobs constitutes Apple news. I'm glad they've posted it; if you don't like it don't read it or comment on the thread.
Well said.

And I appreciate your avatar and signature sir.
Well done.

This is probably how we got the next iPhone's parts that keep leaking. Tim said he was doubling down on secrecy so it's the only way.

I do hope I never experience something like this myself. Not good news no matter who this happens to.

If this is his Facebook page, that was mentioned previously, it's good he was practicing for his shot here:

You get a free iPhone 3GS though if you buy that combo. We'll worth the $60K.

Yesterday, I had a vision. I was in the middle of a field, and I was extremely hungry and thirsty. There was a basket in the field, and it was full of apples.

This news, and my vision, can only mean one thing.

Isn't this the whole point of the forum? Just because someone doesn't like it they shouldn't comment on it?

So it's clear to you - even though not to the police and investigation - that he knew it was Jobs' home.

I'm not excusing the behavior. But it's a bit harsh to accuse him of grave robbing as if it were a deliberate act.

If it was a spur of the moment burglary, it's hardly grave robbing.

Seriously kidz, he burgled a house. Would it be any better if it hadn't belonged to the late Saint Steve?

Maybe the guy was hungry and foolish?

By the time the Jobs' family lawyers have finished with him he will beg to be executed.
