QOTD: The Ninja Throwing Stars? They’re For My Friend Larry Ellison …

Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs said he’ll never come back to Japan after officials at an airport barred him from taking Ninja throwing stars aboard his private plane, SPA! magazine reported in its latest issue.

Japanese tabloid SPA! Magazine via Bloomberg (c’mon Bloomberg–SPA!?) suggests that Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ black turtleneck may actually be a part of his Shinobi Shozoku

“Steve did visit Japan this summer for a vacation in Kyoto, but the incidents described at the airport are pure fiction. Steve had a great time and hopes to visit Japan again soon.”

– In its official comment on SPA!’s report Apple says that Steve Jobs is not a ninja.
