PALO ALTO, CALIF. (AP) - Imagine the potential treasures inside the stolen iPad of the late Steve Jobs: Secret corporate documents, personal correspondence and maybe even game prototypes.
But professional entertainer Kenny the Clown, who unwittingly received the stolen tablet after the Apple co-founder’s Palo Alto home was burglarized last month, says he never examined the touch-screen device’s contents.
Instead, the 47-year-old clown downloaded music to play for San Francisco Bay Area kids and tourists.
The San Jose Mercury News (bit.ly/Pp9f7X) says Kenny the Clown, whose real name is Kenneth Kahn, had no idea the iPad came from the Jobs residence until a friend who gave it to him was charged with burglary and police had confiscated the device.
Authorities say 35-year-old Kariem McFarlin stole iPods, Macs, jewelry and Jobs‘ wallet. He is due in court Monday and recently hired a lawyer.
