Jobs’s House Burglarized; Suspect Held in Offline Storage

The Palo Alto home of Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs has been burglarized. The San Jose Mercury News reports that computers and personal items worth some $60,000 were stolen from Jobs’s home in mid-July. The alleged thief, who may have been unaware of the significance of the home he was emptying out, has been arrested and charged with residential burglary and selling stolen property, pending an Aug. 20 court hearing. “It appears to be a random deal,” Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Tom Flattery told CNN. “We don’t have anything to show that [Jobs's family] was targeted.”

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
