A down-on-his-luck, 35-year-old homeless man broke into Steve Jobs’ home with a spare key, stole a cache of pricey electronics, jewelry and even the late computer icon’s wallet with $1 inside, and got caught when the pilfered Apple hardware snitched to the company’s mainframe, according to police documents obtained exclusively by The Daily.
Wearing work gloves, Kariem McFarlin set down lawn furniture cushions outside the perimeter of the home in order to safely toss his take including: two iMacs, three iPads, one Apple TV, a Sodastream soda maker and various Tiffany jewels before fleeing away in his car.
McFarlin also found a wallet containing “Steve Jobs’ California Driver’s License, credit cards and personal items” and $1…
McFarlin was quickly caught after he plugged in the various hot Apple hardware, which contacted central servers to upgrade itself. A task force made of Apple security and local Palo Alto police quickly traced the hot goods back to McFarlin.
Men are more like Microsoft: They’ll just make a fake version of what that chick made, then try to intimidate everybody into using their product.
OH WOW. OH WOW. OH WOW.
Steve Jobs was certainly not a singular man. He was not an—he was an island that touched so many people.
