For example, some of these cards offer priority checkin at the airport but that is what you get automatically when you purchase a first class or business class ticket so it would only benefit you if you travelled "economy" or wanted to try to buy an "upgrade" on your economy ticket.
Plus, Steve didn't fly commercial. When you buy a Gulfstream V, priority check-in is included in the purchase price.



But, hey, he got a lot of points when he filled up the tank!

I was more interested to see if he had something unique that might portend the future, like perhaps a prototype Apple iTunes credit card with NFC chip

Or if you're buying non-first-class tickets for friends or family, and you want them to get priority benefits.

Parking in handicap spots is pretty douchey if you aren't handicapped.

Job's carried blank checks. He had no license or photo ID because he would have to stand in line at the DMV to get one.

So is the story here that it is unusual that a clown got a stolen item without his knowledge?

I'm afraid I fail to see the significance of this article. I suppose that if Bob the HVAC guy got the iPad and also had no idea that it was stolen from Steve Jobs' estate we would have gotten an article about that as well?

+1 for using the iPad in a clown routine (hot as it were)

(The only thing clowns have in common with giant squids is the razor-sharp beak, which you rarely get to see. Believe me, you don’t want to.)
LOL ^ true story.

I can vaguely remember that Steve Jobs was seriously ill. I don't know about the USA, but in Britain people who are a lot healthier have received "disabled" stickers.

Why didn't Ms Jobs have a safe-deposit box for all this historical stuff?

Remember when he had cancer, got a liver replacement, and went through chemo? Do you know anyone who had chemo? It's not the nicest of times, to say the least.

In the US you can get a handicap plate just for being moderately obese and complaining enough.

He did it before he was sick. And if he needed to park their when he was sick he should have got a tag.

Requiring handicap spots and ramps that are rarely used by handicapped people is pretty douchey of the government. Stupid waste of pavement. They are also a very high income employment act for douchey non-handicapped lawyers.

Kenny the crook more like. A thief is a thief as far as I'm concerned. Screw all this mitigating circumstances garbage. I didn't go out and steal stuff, i went out and worked for it.

What if you have tourettes syndrome, does that count? When someone says, hey you,cant park there, you don't look disabled, you can throw profanities at them and it's fine
