Kenny the Clown had Steve Jobs’ stolen iPad
Question of the Day
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 says he unwittingly received the stolen tablet after the Apple co-founder’s Palo Alto home was burglarized last month and never examined the touch-screen device’s contents.
Instead, he says he downloaded iTunes to play the “Pink Panther” theme song and Michael Jackson songs to play while entertaining San Francisco Bay Area kids and tourists.
The San Jose Mercury News (bit.ly/Pp9f7X) reports that Kenny the Clown, whose real name is Kenneth Kahn, says he had no idea the 64GB iPad came from the Jobs residence until a friend who gave it to him was charged with burglary.
“I didn’t notice anything special or anything like that,” Kahn said. “It was silver. It looked normal. I was basically using it like an iPod.”
Kahn said he had the tablet for three or four days before police knocked on his door and asked for the purloined iPad.
Kariem McFarlin, 35, of Alameda was arrested on Aug. 2 and accused of breaking into the Jobs home and stealing iPods, Macs, jewelry and Jobs‘ wallet.
McFarlin gave Kahn and his daughter iPads stolen from the Jobs home on July 17, investigators said.
McFarlin, who remains jailed with bail set at $500,000, is due in court Monday and recently hired a lawyer.
Apple and the Jobs family have declined to comment.
