    Earlier this week, it was revealed that Steve Jobs' home had been burglarized last month, with a thief entering the under-renovation house and taking over $60,000 worth of property including several iMacs and iPads, Tiffany jewelry, and Steve Jobs' wallet with $1 in it.

    The San Jose Mercury News now reports that one of those stolen iPads ended up in the hands of "Kenny the Clown", a local clown who performs shows for kids and tourists in the Bay Area. Kenny was given the iPad by his friend Kariem McFarlin, the thief who has admitted to his crime.
    Kenny, who says he didn't notice anything special about the iPad and simply thought McFarlin was handing down an old one to him, portrays his friend as a "nice guy who made a horrible, horrible decision".

    He can't be held responsible for not looking through it for stuff, he thought it was just a free iPad!

    "& Steve Jobs' wallet with $1 in it"

    I'm sorry but that bit just sounds a bit too far fetched LOL. I guess cos his annual salary was $1?

    Who knows whats in Steve's residence. There could have been prototype Macs or some devices specifically built for him. I know Sony use to do that for their CEO. Didn't the Walkman start out like that at first? Although since his passing its more than likely they'd have been removed

    Steve Jobs' wallet with $1 in it.

    So perfect. I am now imagining Steve never carried cash, except for this $1 bill, a representation of his Apple annual salary.

    (Or maybe something to get quarters for the parking meter, in a pinch.)

    Steve's dead, why would you expect there to be any money in his wallet?

    Oh the irony in this! The two Steves and Jobs [then]girlfriend were clowns for awhile in their young days entertaining kids. Jobs hated doing that clown deal, too.

    This is ridiculously close to being an article from The Onion.

    I make a pretty decent salary and rarely have more than a few bucks on me.

    Remember that Steve never had a license plate on his Benz? He also parked in handicap spots without a tag on his car. Knowing that, I imagine he didn't give 2 cents about parking meters either. He was a funny guy.

    The comments on this thread are crappier than usual. Wow. Did the bright colors on the clown picture bring out the special ones? (Yeah I bet someone is going to comment with "you commented!". Uh, sure go ahead and post that. That's about as imaginative as a "your mom" joke).

    To heck with the dollar bill.

    I want to hear about what kind of black credit cards the wallet contained :)

    Next, Eric Schmidt's Android tablet winds up in the hands of a male stripper.

    If he even owns one, that is. (Who'd want an Android tablet?)

    They’re not like you and me. The hair, the nose... I don’t think they’re even human. I don’t hate them, I just fear and respect them the way an unknown threat should always be feared and respected. Like ball lightning and giant squids. Little-understood but all too real—and maybe, just maybe, lethal. The best defense is never to sleep, as both clowns and ball lightning can pass through keyholes. (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.)

    Black credit cards are so overrated. The annual fees are ridiculous and the benefits that you get are not worth the extra money. In fact, the Amex Black Card (Centurion) is not worth it because the majority of "benefits" can be had with the Platinum charge card for a lower annual fee.

    Technically, any Amex charge card has an "unlimited" spending limit as long as you pay the balance within 30 days and have credit in good standing.

    I have black "Unlimited" visa with a set limit for carrying charges over 30 days but you can charge as much as you like if you pay any amount over the limit within 30 days.

    Many "benefits" are redundant if you have the money to pay off large purchases within 30 days.

    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.
